Last week we were all stunned when it was announced that Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover had left Megadeth (Read their statements here). Since that news came out, several rumors starting going around the internet that it may be the end for the legendary band, but like most rumors on the web, they were completely false. In a November 29th online chat with members of Megadeth fan club, David Ellefson had this to say: “As you can probably tell by me being here today, we are not disbanding. As of right now, we are looking at all the options, of which there are many. We’ll certainly continue working on the new songs for the next record, Hopefully that brings everyone up to speed on things as of today. Thank you for all of your kind words, concerns and support to us.”
So there you have it! Megadeth lives on, and the new record is still in the works! Stay tuned for any more updates on new members, but let’s all be happy that the Mustaine and Ellefson will continue the name we grew up on! This is AWESOME news!
