F5 To Open For STAIND In Arizona

F5, the new Phoenix-based band featuring former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, ex-SICK SPEED vocalist Dale Steele, drummer David Small, and guitarists Steve Conley and John Davis, will be opening for STAIND on May 10 at the Mesa Amphitheater in Mesa, AZ. Also appearing on the bill are THREE DAYS GRACE and HURT. Upcoming F5 dates now include:

Mar. 30 - Venue Of Scottsdale - Scottsdale, AZ
Apr. 21 - Forgetta-Bout-It - Houston, TX
May 05 - Corporate Show - Scottsdale, AZ

F5's debut album, "A Drug for All Seasons", was released in North America in September via Cleopatra Records. The original version of "A Drug For All Seasons" is also available in Asia on JVC Victor Entertainment and in Europe on Mascot Records.

F5, whose sound is being described as guitar-heavy melodic hard rock, recorded the album last year at a Phoenix-area studio with producer Ryan Greene, who had previously worked with Ellefson in 1991 on the demos for MEGADETH's "Countdown to Extinction" album.
