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.
Megadeth’s fifteenth studio album “Dystopia” has been released on frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine‘s Tradecraft label via Universal on January 22, 2016. The album was produced by Mustaine and Chris Rakestraw and features cover artwork by Brent Elliot White.
“Dystopia” was the first album to feature Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with Angra.
