Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine issued the following update on their official website:
“There is a lot to talk about, but nothing more important than this:
“This is a night I have been hoping for, for many years now; the night before a 'fierce new MEGADETH release.'
“I want to tell you all how much I love you and how many times I have felt like I was going to explode in anticipation just watching you hear 'United Abominations' for the first time.
“It's no secret how much we care about each other here at Megadeth.com and Myspace/Megadeth and I wish I could be there with you, hanging out, to share the moment and chat with you, and hear your excitement when you are done experiencing 'U.A.' for the first time.
“But I have a secret for you . . . it is going to get better every time you listen to it.
“I want you to know we thought of every one of you, each time we sang, and we thought of each one of you, each time we played. We were so excited about you hearing this, because WE like it. And that is a kewl thing.
“Your love for MEGS has fired me up to make a record that I love, beyond just about anything I have ever done.
“I would like to say a lil' prayer that each one of you would know how much I love you and appreciate your support . . . even the assholes.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
