Hard-rock powerhouse Rob Zombie will hit the road with thrash metal giants Megadeth for a co-headlining tour that kicks off in New Jersey this May and features two previously announced festival appearances.

Rob Zombie and Megadeth are joining forces for the first time ever for the limited engagement this spring. The dates will come on the heels of Megadeth’s current Gigantour — which also features Motorhead, Lacuna Coil, and Volbeat — and will mark Rob Zombie’s first tour since last summer’s ‘Hell on Earth’ tour with another thrash metal titan, Slayer.

Rob Zombie stage show, described in the press release as “an amped-up, non-stop barrage of sin, sex and Satan guaranteed to rip your face off,” may clash with Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine‘s Christian beliefs, but nonetheless it should be a headbanging extravaganza! The engagement currently has nine announced dates — two of which are their previously set festival performances at Rock on the Range and Rocklahoma — with more to be announced soon.

Megadeth are touring in support of their 13th studio album ‘TH1RT3EN,’ while Zombie is currently working on his witchcraft horror flick ‘Lords of Salem’ — which has a tentative 2012 release date — and plans to enter the studio to record the follow-up to 2010′s ‘Hellbilly Deluxe 2.’
