Megadeth tease inaugural MegaCruise

Megadeth are teasing a forthcoming announcement about their first-ever Megacruise event next year.

“MegaCruise: Thrashing Through The Pacific 2019” is the message shared across the thrash band’s social media sites while inviting fans to sign up for the mailing list at

As fans await further details about the cruise, Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine recently confirmed that the group have been in songwriting mode for a 2019 follow-up to 2016’s “Dystopia.”

“Yes, actually, we are,” Mustaine confirmed to Guitar World about the work-in-progress. “We have been for a few weeks now. All the band members are at home writing stuff and putting it in the same spot, keeping all the riffs centralized in one place. And anybody can access anybody’s stuff. And then once we’re done I’ll start assembling everything.”

“Dystopia” debuted at No.3 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release while the album’s title track won the band their first-ever Grammy Award in the Best Metal Performance category at the 2017 event.

This November, bassist David Ellefson will publish "More Life With Deth" as the follow-up to his 2013 memoir "My Life With Deth."

Megadeth are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year.
