It appears that the new MEGADETH studio album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead”, will finally arrive in the spring of 2022.
Band mainman Dave Mustaine recently gave an interview with American Songwriter magazine and revealed that the new album will in fact arrive in the spring of next year. Mustaine also confirmed the record’s title as “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead” as previously mentioned.
“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.”
“The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead” will be MEGADETH’s first effort with new drummer Dirk Verbeuren (ex-SOILWORK) and a new bassist who has yet to be revealed after the firing of four stringer David Ellefson earlier this year.
