In a November 29 online chat with members of Megadeth fan club, the Megadeth Cyber Army, bassist David Ellefson confirmed that the band will forge ahead despite the sudden departures of both drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick late last month. Ellefson had the following 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."Ellefson did not expound upon the reasons for Drover and Broderick's exit, offering only that the pair exited for "personal reasons."
