Megadeth issue first photo of new studio lineup

(L-R) Chris Adler, Dave Mustaine, Kiko Loureiro, David Ellefson

Megadeth have issued the first photo of their new recording lineup.

Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson recently announced the addition of former Angra guitarist Kiko Loureiro to the band, with Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler joining the group in the studio as a guest player on their next studio album.

The follow-up to 2013’s "Super Coillider" will be Megadeth’s 15th studio album.

Former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza recently revealed that a reunion of the band’s classic 1990s lineup fell apart during negotiations; he later shared the details of a contract offer put on the table by his former band.

Menza says Megadeth requested he record the group’s next album without payment, with his earnings to be made from touring.

“The reason why I refused to join Megadeth is because Dave didn't show me any kind of 'love' at all,” explained the drummer. “I wish I was doing it, but they didn't want to show me any contract in writing or anything, I guess it was just not meant to be.”
