MEGADETH are about to commence work on their brand new studio album with British producer Andy Sneap. This new opus will be the first to feature new guitarist, Chris Broderick, alongside the legendary guitarist, frontman and band visionary, Dave Mustaine. The CD will follow 2007’s ‘return to form’ release, ‘United Abominations’ and this year’s Metal Hammer ‘Golden God’ Awards, that saw Dave Mustaine pick up the ‘Riff Lord’ Award.
Expect a late Spring ‘09 release.
