Megadeth are sharing a preview of new music from their forthcoming 15th studio album.
The band recently launched an online countdown on their official website featuring an image with a live digital clock counting down to Friday, October 2 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
Now, the band have tipped fans off to their first taste of a song from the follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider.”
The group tweeted: “System 2, Booted: system.megadeth.com . Listen closely… #megadeth15”
When fans visit the website and wait :10, music from an unidentified track from the project – featuring the rhythm section of bassist David Ellefson and drummer Chris Adler – starts playing on a loop.
Recorded in Nashville, the untitled features new guitarist Kiko Loureiro and guest drummer Adler from Lamb Of God following last fall’s departure of Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover.
Megadeth are gearing up for the clock’s countdown on October 2 as they prepare to launch a world tour in support of the record with a pair of shows in China starting October 6 in Beijing.
