DAVE MUSTAINE Says MEGADETH’s New Album Is Mastered And ‘Super Close’ To Being Released

The new Megadeth album will be released quite soon according to Dave Mustaine.


According to Dave Mustaine, MEGADETH’s new album, “The Sick, The Dying And The Dead” has been mastered and is “super close” to being unleashed upon the world.

Mustaine offered the update on the the effort in a new Cameo video message to a fan, who happens to be a young bassist and sax player named Louie, saying (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “We’re super close to having ‘The Sick, The Dying And The Dead’ out. We’ve been mixing and mastering it, and the mastering was done yesterday. So now it’s off to the label, and pretty soon it’s gonna be in your very talented hands.”

Mustaine has confirmed previously that guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren were both involved in the creation of the songs on the album, which was recorded mostly in Nashville, with Loureiro working on his parts from his home in Finland. The mystery bassist, who stepped in to re-record vacated four stringer David Ellefson’s parts has yet to be officially revealed.
