Megadeth is confirmed to play the “HEAVY T.O.” festival at Downsview Park, Toronto on July 23, 2011. The remarkable success of HEAVY MTL (Montreal) prompted the launch of a new event, right down the 401 – that’s right, we’re talkin’ HEAVY T.O.

The event will feature two full days of programming and, along with HEAVY MTL, will undoubtedly make Canada the envy of the international metal and hard rock communities. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, March 25th @ 11 a.m. EST. For more information, visit heavyto.com.

“We worked super hard on this album, at least for me it was pretty much no sleep or rest for six weeks,” stated Laiho. “But we were determined to make the best COB album ever, so we were willing to do whatever it took. Of course, having our producer Matt Hyde kicking our asses 24/7 definitely made the results even better, so obviously we’re more than anxious to get this album out there.”

Black Label Berzerkus 2010Additional dates have been added to the “Black Label Berzerkus” tour featuring Black Label Society, Clutch, and Children of Bodom. The “Black Label Berzerkus,” a two month-long stint described as “rock n’ roll nights of excess and unique madness,” will be headlined by Zakk Wylde’s infamous Black Label Society.  The extensive North American trek will kick off on September 21st at Roseland in Portland, OR, and make stops across the U.S. and Canada.

Zakk Wylde, the former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist, was looking at other rock festivals and saw the need for a value-priced tour of his own. It was an easy decision, says Wylde, summing it up like only he can, “If you don’t get invited to the party, start your f’ing own!” Children of Bodom commented, “COB is more than ready to head out on Berzerkus and see all of our great fans. Expect nothing but a good time, Bodom style!”
