Metal acolytes, rejoice: Megadeth have announced their second Colorado date in less than a year.

The band’s Post American World tour will come to North America this fall, smashing through Broomfield’s 1stBank Center on October 1. (The question nobody is asking: How will this affect Drake ticket sales here?) Amon Amarth, Metal Church and Havok will perform in support.

Tickets are $35-$50 and go on sale Friday, July 22 at 10 a.m. via altitudetickets.com.

The band is touring in support of “Dystopia,” their fifteenth studio album.

Megadeth last came to Denver in February, when they played a heartening set at the Fillmore Auditorium. From writer/photgrapher Alan Cox’s review of the night:

The strategic setlist was full of heavy favorites drawn from eight different records in the band’s history—all polished and with little brake pumping. The closest thing to a melodic break from the heavy set was “A Tout Le Monde,” a pounding tune flanked by a lighter intro and outro. Mustaine expressed gratitude for Denver being a long-time supporter of Megadeth, and gave the Mile High City the band’s first-ever live rendition of “The Threat Is Real.”
