Big news for Megadeth fans. A new album is on it's way and frontman Dave Mustaine is 95% certain we'll all be listening to it in 2019.
During a recent interview with Guitar World the guitarist and frontman confirmed that himself, bassist David Ellefson, guitarist Kiki Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren have launched into the writing process for the follow-up to 2016’s Dystopia.
And Mustaine's put a 2019 release at "probably 95%."
Bloody well like those odds.
Mustaine went into detail on Megadeth's current writing process.
All the band members are at home writing stuff and putting it in the same spot, keeping all the riffs centralised in one place. And anybody can access anybody’s stuff. Then once we’re done, I’ll start assembling everything.
Then Guitar World did us all a solid and pressed Mustaine for more detail on a release date...
2019. 2019. 2019. 2019.
To which Mustaine responded: “Absolutely. For sure. A whole new record, I would say the chances are probably 95%. And at least one new song, I’d say it’s 100%. No question.”
Holy hecka. That's what we like to hear.
While we sit around waiting for this record, here's a golden oldie throwback to Brad the boss fan boying over ol' mate Mustaine...
