Former Megadeth guitarist Marty Friedman has released more details — including the complete track listing — about his upcoming solo album, Inferno.

He's also announced several tour dates with Gus G. You can see all the dates below.

The album, which will be released May 27 in the U.S. through Prosthetic Records, was recorded primarily in Los Angeles with engineer Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Children of Bodom) and mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth).

It features what Friedman recently told Guitar World is "the most intense writing and playing I can do."

The album includes guest appearances by Rodrigo y Gabriela, Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho, Skyharbor mastermind Keshav Dhar and Revocation's David Davidson. Also included is Friedman's first songwriting collaboration with Jason Becker since the pair played together in Cacophony.

Inferno even includes a mash-up with Jørgen Munkeby of "blackjazz" act Shining, plus two tracks featuring vocals by Danko Jones. Here's the complete track listing:
