Megadeth leave Roadrunner Records

Megadeth have wrapped up their deal with Roadrunner Records and are moving on.

Dave Mustaine tweeted the new on Sunday, writing, "Today marks the end of an era with Roadrunner @rrusa. Hopefully we can finish strong with a #Grammy."

Megadeth’s last album was 2011’s “Thirteen”; the track "Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)" is nominated in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance" category at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on February 10 in Los Angeles.

The band’s 11th Grammy nomination sees them competing alongside songs from Anthrax, Halestorm, Iron Maiden, Lamb Of God and Marilyn Manson.

Megadeth entered the studio a few months ago to start work on a new album, prior to playing their "Countdown To Extinction 20th Anniversary Tour" across North America.
