“On the rare occasion that I stop and think I about it, I realize I’ve done an insane thing: I left a successful international band to concentrate my efforts on the domestic music scene of a country thousands of miles from my home. Different culture, different language, different planet. Since I went to Japan, so many Americans have supported me, and while many doubted I would ever play live in my homeland again, now it’s happening. Choosing the setlist and doing prep for this tour has been a blast. Words can not describe how excited I am about finally touring North America!”

We here at Metal Riot could not be more stoked for Marty to stop down in the States and spank the new school pups with his insane chops. My favorite Megadeth guitarist ever, for sure. And Exmortus as well are along for the ride!

Marty Friedman (of Cacophony and Megadeth fame) has always had an interesting story. Post-Megadeth years found the celebrated guitarist moving to Japan, releasing numerous acclaimed solo albums and becoming a television star! Always one to follow his muse over the cliché or easy path, Marty is an icon to the metal world.

The great Prosthetic Records has reissued three fantastic Friedman albums for North American consumption! 2010’s “Bad DNA” and 2008’s “Future Addict” have only been available in Japan until now, streamlined and electric collections of Marty tearing it up in his forward thinking, signature style. In addition, perhaps Marty’s best album “Loudspeaker” from 2006 is also getting a sweet reissue treatment.

I was very honored to talk to Marty about Prosthetic, his surreal life in Japan, his favorite Megadeth solo, Billy Sheehan and donating all his Megadeth guitars for tsunami relief. What a class act!
