Megadeth share new album update

Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine is sharing an update on sessions for the band’s new album in a new episode of his Gimme Radio program "The Dave Mustaine Show."

The thrash outfit has been working on the follow-up to 2016’s “Dystopia” in recent years.

"Thankfully, my partner is coming back out to Nashville, and we're gonna be commencing on some guitar tracks and solos and some ear candy to wrap all that up,” explains Mustaine. “I've got one song left to sing, and then another song I've got one sentence that I've gotta finish. Other than that, all the vocals are done on this record, and it'll be time to focus now on background vocals and the remaining stuff with solos and, as we say, I know I've said it so many times, 'ear candy.'

"For you guys that don't know what that is, it's just what it sounds like, it's sticky, sappy, syrupy crap people put on records that help to, I don't know, make the song sound better. When you're thinking about AC/DC, you don't usually think about percussion."

“Dystopia” debuted at No.3 on the US Billboard 200 upon its release in 2016 while the album’s title track won the band their first-ever Grammy Award in the Best Metal Performance category at the 2017 event.
