On March 22, Megadeth will celebrate its 35th anniversary with the release of “Warheads On Foreheads”, a 35-track career retrospective. The anthology spans the band’s entire studio recording career, from its first album “Killing Is My Business…And Business Is Good” to its 2016 Grammy Award-winning release “Dystopia”, and will be available as a 3-CD set, a 4-LP set and a digital edition via UMe Recordings. A limited-edition, four-LP set pressed on silver colored vinyl will be available exclusively through the band’s online store, with deluxe bundles to be announced.
“Thirty-five years ago I chose the name Megadeth for my band and I see these songs as the most efficient weapons in the band’s arsenal,” says Dave Mustaine. “‘Warheads On Foreheads’ is a U.S. military term for targeting efficiency. It’s all about using the right tool for the job and these tracks were created for maximum destruction (or stopping power, or something else!).”
Megadeth will release a greatest-hits album, “Warheads On Foreheads”, on March 22. The disc will feature 35 remastered tracks hand-selected by Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine. Pre-orders via the band’s own Cyber Army fan club are due to launch on January 25th.
The cover artwork for the album can be seen below.
Megadeth recently released a 25-second video teaser for “Warheads On Foreheads” featuring a snippet of the band’s classic track ‘Take No Prisoners’.
Dave Mustaine recently announced he was taking a break from social media for a while to concentrate on Megadeth‘s upcoming 16th album, and now it looks like the thrash metal titans are ready to make a big announcement very shortly.
The band posted a brief teaser clip showing vintage bomber footage for about 15 seconds before a riff from the “Rust in Peace” track ‘Take No Prisoners’ kicks in, along with the caption “January 11th”. Whether it’s a big announcement or a new song remains to be seen, but something’s definitely cooking in the Megadeth kitchen. We’ll find out next friday what it all means.
Grammy Award-winning Megadeth bassist, author, entrepreneur and metal icon David Ellefson, in association with Hexagon Booking, has announced a string of European dates to his “Basstory” tour, a series of limited and exclusive “Storytellers” dates, starting September 21 in Portland, Oregon.
Dubbed “Basstory: An Intimate Evening Of Riffs And Repartee With David Ellefson”, the show combines solo bass performance with David‘s celebrated brand of storytelling, as he recounts intimate details of his struggles and triumphs in the name of rock ‘n’ roll.
“Basstory” will also include special VIP meet-and-greets, exclusive merchandise, and more.
