David Ellefson and Jeff Scott Soto collaborate in a new project and they will release a full-length album in September. Rat Pak Records will publish the album, which will be titled "Vacation In The Underworld". Besides that, to launch their new project, the two famous heavy metal musicians will play two live shows in Italy, where they will perform some of the new music as well as run through various catalog highlights, including songs from Megadeth and Yngwie Malmsteen. Italian guitarist Andy Martongelli will be the musical director, as well as Paolo Caridi will be on drums and Valerio De Rosa on the rhythm guitar.
Ellefson said: "Italy has become, for many years now, a 'home away from home' for me and my solo projects. Jeff and I are thrilled to debut and launch our new music with these exclusive live shows for our fans in Italy".
The two live shows will take place in Milano (16 September) and Rome (17 September).
Do not forget that the duo had already released its version of the Riot classic, "Swords & Tequila", in March 2021.
