Megadeth are premiering a video for the title track to their forthcoming album “Dystopia” on the eve of its January 22 release.
The animated clip follows the storyline established in the video for the track “The Threat Is Real.”
"We had met with a guy in England, and I basically talked to him about this dystopian city that I had kind of visualized,” frontman Dave Mustaine tells Mashable. “You see all these movies like Armageddon, Independence Day, 12 Monkeys, Planet of The Apes and stuff, and there's always a moral at the end of the story: If you stand up for what's right, you won't have to give in to a dystopian world.
“It's just one of those things we grew up in. Explaining that concept to the artist — I thought he got what I was saying pretty clearly."
Megadeth will launch a North American tour with guests Suicidal Tendencies, Children Of Bodom and Havok on February 20 in Dallas, TX.
