It’s been an exciting week to be a Megadeth fan! After weeks of rumors, they finally confirmed on Sunday that Chris Adler would be playing drums on their upcoming record, and as he said, “Get ready for a very exciting chapter in the MEGADETH legacy!” As of a few weeks ago, they were still auditioning guitarists, but the writing hasn’t stopped, and it’s now near completion! Dave Mustaine just posted this on his Twitter account: “Almost done with the writing of the new record. One more week before tracking starts. #Megadeth15”
So there you have it! The writing is almost done, the recording will begin next week, and that’s the latest from the Megadeth camp! I don’t know about you, but I’m extremely excited to hear the new material. With Chris Adler behind the kit, he’s brought a new energy to the legendary band, and with all of the talent they have in that room now, we should expect something extra special coming out later this year! Stay tuned for more details soon!
