“With Dave’s throat cancer treatments that he has now completed, and he’s just going through the recovery now, we’re hopeful and optimistic about a full recovery for him with that. Once he’s through that process, we’re gonna just let that take as much time as it needs, and then we’ll resume with the album. I’d like to hope maybe 2020 we’ll be able to get a new album out…
“Sometime life throws you cards you didn’t expect. Megadeth, we’ve always been a resilient band and we’ve always just worked around obstacles. Dave’s a fighter, as we know. Just talking to him, he sounds very optimistic about the future for Megadeth.”
Members continue to work on the new songs, which will be on Dystopia’s (2016) successor album. However, David Ellefson himself stated that they have not actually gone to the studio to record the songs.
