Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Hopes To Release New Songs Ahead Of Winter Tour

Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine hopes to release new music before the band’s winter tour of Europe begins.

Mustaine told Rolling Stone that the band has written “nine really crushing songs” for the follow-up to the 2016 album Dystopia.

“All we need to do is get in the studio and capture them,” Mustaine said. “We’ve got scratch drum tracks. We just have to get Dirk to play through the songs once or twice, and then it’s up to me and David and Kiko to finish.”

The band had planned to record the follow-up Dystopia this year, but Mustaine’s cancer diagnosis delayed their work.

Mustaine said he and bassist David Ellefson are working on a song inspired by the KISS track “Beth” that deals with the difficult period of their long relationship.

When asked how many tracks he hoped to release before the album’s arrival, Mustaine said, “It might be two, it might be four.”

He noted that three tracks had working titles – “The Dogs of Chernobyl,” “Faster Than Anything Else” and “Rattlehead, Part Two.”
