Megadeth are in the studio working on their 14th album and are, once again, teamed up with producer Johnny K.
On Friday, frontman Dave Mustaine posted an update on the project, writing, “Shawn [Drover, drums] and David [Ellefson, bass] have finished tracking songs 1, 2, and 3 and now it’s my turn today. I feel a burning in my soul!!! Arrrrggghhh!"
The new album will be the first by the band in a new label situation, as they recently announced the completion of their deal with Roadrunner Records.
Megadeth’s last set 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.
