Interestingly, Dillinger Escape Plan, along with Nevermore and Fear Factory, have been been tapped to support co-headliners Megadeth and Dream Theater as part of a six-week festival tour. Dubbed Gigantour, the tour is the "brainchild" of Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and will kick off in late-July. The aforementioned bands will play on the main stage, while artists for a second stage will be announced shortly. Regarding DEP and Nevermore, Mustaine had this to say: "I think Fear Factory and the Dillinger Escape Plan are really going to add something different to the tour and bring some new people in. The frontman of Nevermore [Warrel Dane] used to be in a band called Sanctuary and I produced their first record." Tour dates and additional information should surface soon.
