On April 21st, former “That Metal Show” host and comedian Don Jamieson will release his new comedy album, Communication Breakdown, via Metal Blade Records. Recorded at The Funny Stop in Cuyahoga Falls, OH, Communication Breakdown‘s title and cover come from Don‘s Rutgers University senior yearbook photo. Don explains: “My young nieces and nephews found the photo at my mom’s house and starting texting me how funny it was, and when I saw it again after so many years, I agreed! I majored in communication, so it was just a matter of adding the ‘Breakdown’ to it, which is obviously something you never want to happen in comedy.” For a preview of Communication Breakdown, the track “Kiefer” can be heard at:metalblade.com/donjamieson – where the album can also be pre-ordered.

Communication Breakdown track-listing:
1. Dave Mustaine Riffs, Intervention, Baby in t…
2. Sober, Finger-Banging, Drunk Logic
3. Weed, Cigs, Election 2016
4. Kiefer
5. Myrtle Beach
6. Free Clinic, Raccoons
7. Rockers Aren’t P.C.
8. Where Have All the Rock Stars Gone?
9. Rocking Women, Viking Metal, Big Four
10. Vagina No-No’s, Van Fucker, Doggie Style
11. Dating at 50, Threesome (Almost)
12. Brad & Angelina, Great Head, Mr. Brownstone
13. Johnny Depp

Named one of the top 10 metalhead comedians by Revolver Magazine, Don has captured some of his most irreverent work to-date on his third album, Communication Breakdown. Don explains: “This album has tons of jokes but really revolves around 4 or 5 longer stories, which is something I’ve never really done before. I usually just like shot gunning jokes like beers at a frat party, but this time around I tried something a little different. It took a while to develop them for the stage but am really happy with the way they turned out, particularly the track ‘Kiefer’, which is a true story about a crazy night with the ’24’ actor.
Other than that, there’s a little bit of something for everyone on this disc, and I hope people who buy or steal it enjoy it as much as I do.”

MEGADETH UNLEASH NEW STUDIO ALBUM ‘DYSTOPIA’

MEGADETH UNLEASH NEW STUDIO ALBUM ‘DYSTOPIA’
Available JANUARY 22, 2016

Brand new track “Fatal Illusion” available now

MD-Dystopia_PR

Thrash metal genre pioneers MEGADETH will kick off the new year with the release of their 15th studio album Dystopia on Universal Music Enterprises /Tradecraft / T-Boy Records on January 22, 2016.

With musical architect and band visionary Dave Mustaine at the helm, Dystopia was recorded in Nashville, TN, and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira, Avenged Sevenfold).

The rest of the MEGADETH lineup is comprised of David “Junior” Ellefson on bass, new member Kiko Loureiro (formerly of Angra) on guitar, and drummer Chris Adler, who took time away from Lamb of God to record Dystopia. The result marks a true return to form, adding new blood and injecting a new burst of creative energy into the new album.

“There’s an excitement right now that I haven’t felt for a really long time,” exclaims Dave Mustaine.

Featuring 11 brand new tracks, Dystopia will be released on both CD and LP, as well as digitally through all online partners. “Fatal Illusion” is the first track released from the album, listen here.

Dystopia weaves together Dave Mustaine’s intricate and unique songwriting style, trademark leads and lightning riffs with harmonious precision, paying homage to MEGADETH’s influential roots while continuing to break new and heavy ground.

MEGADETH burst onto the scene thirty years ago, virtually inventing a genre with their debut album Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good! (recently recognized by VH1 as the Greatest Thrash Metal Debut Album of All Time) sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including 11 Grammy® nominations, scoring five consecutive platinum albums—including 1992’s two-million-selling Countdown to Extinction.
