Chris Broderick to Appear on WRUW 91.1 FM's Forte

This Friday (January 15), Cleveland, Ohio's WRUW 91.1 FM radio station will air an interview with Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick. The interview will be featured on the station's Forte show between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. EST.

The American Carnage tour, which featured Megadeth, Testament, and Slayer, was recently put on tour due to health issues. Tom Araya, bassist and singer for Slayer, needs to undergo back surgery - a procedure that cannot be postponed.

Although Megadeth has expressed disappointment over the delay of the much-anticipated tour, the band said in a statement to its record label (Roadrunner Records) that it "is concerned for Araya and wish[es] him a speedy recovery."

In the meantime, Megadeth is scheduling a U.S. headline run for March and April 2010. However, they hope to reschedule the American Carnage tour before the summer arrives. (Those who previously purchased tickets to the now-cancelled show have been advised to hold on to them until further notice.)

Endgame, Megadeth's latest album, debuted at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 chart when it sold 45,000 copies in the U.S. in its first week of release. The band's previous album, United Abominations, opened with roughly 54,000 copies in the U.S. and debuted at No. 8.

Recorded at Vic's Garage - Megadeth's new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California - Endgame was overseen by frontman Dave Mustaine and British producer Andy Sneap (Machine Head, Nevermore, Exodus, Arch Enemy).
