Megadeth announces new album title, record label

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 6:33 AM PT / 4,446 views
In news that comes as no great surprise following the band's split with Roadrunner Records, Megadeth has announced that they will release their forthcoming album via frontman Dave Mustaine's new record label, Tradecraft. Tradecraft will release the effort in partnership with Univeral Music Enterprises (UMe), a division of Universal Music Group. The new album is titled Super Collider and will be available in June. Mustaine had the following to say:
"It was a real thrill for us to learn there was an opportunity to join Universal. It seems like every time you see a great band or music video, it comes from a Universal label. Being with Universal is by far the most exciting and prestigious home for Megadeth ever! We are electrified with what the future holds and the possibilities such a powerhouse like Universal will bring for us all. We have worked with some great people over the years, and it is amazing to see so many of them on the Universal team for our new record, Super Collider. If Megadeth being here isn't satiating enough, having Tradecraft as my own label is going to be really amazing for metal bands around the world. Shawn [Drover], Chris [Broderick] and David [Ellefson] have all been feverishly contributing some great music and I believe we are doing our best work ever together in the studio right now!"

Megadeth was cool when Dave was high all of the time. Now he's a Christian pssy-gay who's sober. fck this band.


anonymous 2/14/2013 4:17:31 PM

Being a Christian myself, I take offense to that. The title sounds kinda...ugh, but I'm sure that despite the title, it will be awesome. Even if it turns out like Risk, I will remain loyal to Megadeth like a true fan would.

Dave, Rust in Peace came out 23 years ago. Quit now while you're behind.
