Recently, Megadeth received the tenth Grammy nomination of their career. The band’s single “Public Enemy #1” from their recently released album Th1rt3en is up for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Performance at this year’s Grammy Awards. “In such uncertain times, it’s just an honor to be recognized by our peers, and anything above that is remarkable,” said frontman Dave Mustaine in a statement.
“Public Enemy #1” marks the second Grammy nomination for music from Th1rt3en, as their song “Sudden Death” -- unveiled in the 2010 video game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock -- was in the running for Best Metal Performance at last year’s awards. The 54th Annual Grammy Awards airs on February 12 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
In other Megadeth news, the group will launch their revived Gigantour featuring Motörhead, Volbeat and Lacuna Coil at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ on January 26.
