Did someone say new Megadeth album? SOMEONE SAID NEW MEGADETH ALBUM, and not just anyone, Dave Mustaine himself! Mustaine and drummer Dirk Verbeuren took to the studio today to begin work on the 16th studio album from the Metal titans. The band will once again be working with Grammy winning co-producer Chris Rakestraw, whom also worked on Dystopia, the previous effort Megadeth released to the world. No full details of the upcoming release have surfaced yet, all we know is that work has officially hit full swing and details should be revealed soon. The pioneers of our beloved genre are approaching their 35th anniversary, coming off of the Dystopia tour ending this year. The band will have two shows left on their iconic year of 2018, playing Rock In Rio, and capping off this year with the MEGACRUISE later this winter, featuring Dragonforce, Anthrax, Testament, and more.

Today, our drummer @VerbeurenDirk and I start @Megadeth Album 16 with Dystopia co-producer and @Grammy winning partner Chris Rakestraw at my side again. No Rest For The Wicked! (relax…that’s not the new title). ?
