MEGADETH - NEW STUDIO ALBUM THE SICK, THE DYING... AND THE DEAD TO ARRIVE IN SPRING '22
In an interview with American Songwriter magazine, Megadeth guitarist and vocalist, Dave Mustaine, reveals that the band's new studio album, entitled The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead, will be released in spring 2022.
An excerpt states: Set for release in spring 2022, Mustaine says the title track is about the plague, but not solely centered around the current pandemic. A broad, more historical scope of the diseases that have plagued humankind throughout time, The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead covers the current virus, swine flu, and other epidemics from centuries past."
Further on in the article, it's revealed that throughout its afflictions and other reflections, the album is assembled from riffs and music Mustaine has had archived for years, some as far back as his teens. "A lot of the riffs have been saved over time," says Mustaine. "A brand new song can be made up of something I wrote when I was 15 or 55. If It's a good riff, I'll save it."
Working on the tracks, along with guitarist Kiko Loureir and drummer Dirk Verbeuren, formerly of Swedish metal band Soilwork, who joined the band full time in 2016, Mustaine say everyone was involved in piecing together the songs on the album recorded partially in the US with Loureiro working on his parts from his home in Finland.
Stay tuned for further details on the new album.
