Havok kicked off Megadeth tour by Dave Mustaine

Colorado thrash band Havok has been removed from the lineup of the fall U.S. tour featuring Megadeth, Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Metal Church. According to frontman David Sanchez, they were kicked off the tour by Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine and Mustaine Management. Here's the official word from Sanchez:
"It is with deep regret we are forced to inform fans of metal that we will not be on the upcoming Megadeth tour with Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Metal Church. We will also not be going to Mexico in August and early September as was planned. "We were really looking forward to these shows, but unfortunately, Mr. Mustaine has chosen to remove us from the lineup. The reasons for our absence are directly related to a contract negotiation insisted upon by Mustaine Management - a negotiation that has gone awry. We are authorized to say that we were offered an unacceptable management contract from Mustaine Management, which we declined. "While working with our lawyer to negotiate the terms of the contract, Mustaine Management threatened to kick us off of the Megadeth tour, Mustaine Management repeatedly failed to respond to phone calls and emails, and eventually told us (through their lawyer) that Mustaine Management is no longer working with Havok. We are only releasing this information to give fans an honest account of the reasons we are no longer on the tour. "We cannot disclose more details at this time (at our attorney's directive), but nonetheless, would like to thank Mustaine Management for the past opportunities that they brought to the table while working with us. We would also like to apologize to the fans that will not be able to see us this fall - we will sorely miss all of you. New tour dates will be announced soon and we look forward to getting back on the road to headbang with the best fans in the world."

Dave Mustaine is the Donald Trump of metal. Well... except he is actually kind of talented, or at least was. Not sure I could say the same for Tronald Dump.

David found out one of the band members drew a pentagram on a desk in high school and didn't want any of that five magics on his shit tour.

As much as Dave Mustaine sucks now, you can't call him "wannabe Metallica" when he was one of the main reasons Metallica was ever great.

^^ Employee of "Mustaine Management"

He wanted the band to bend over and take it, they said no, he went back to looking for a band who would. That's all. Geezer "metal"

anonymous 8/17/2016 4:53:26 PM

Havok, maybe because you suck farts through a straw and no one likes your band? Also, Todd Jones.
