Dave Mustaine talked about the next Megadeth album with Full Metal Jackie on “Whiplash” show and revealed that the band will return to the studio as soon as the Dystopia World Tour is over.
Mustaine told on the radio that working with Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro has been a great experience and believes the work will improve with the addition of Dirk Verbeuren, the band’s new drummer.
Verbeuren joined the band more than a year ago but Megadeth’s next album will be his first in the band.
In the interview, Mustaine also revealed he was excited about the new album, “We’ve been working really well lately, I think this album will be awesome!”
Dystopia is the fifteenth studio album by Megadeth. It was released on frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine’s Tradecraft label via Universal on January 22, 2016. The album was produced by Mustaine and Chris Rakestraw and features cover artwork by Brent Elliot White.
Prior to Dystopia’s recording, longtime drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick announced their departure from the band. It is the first album by the band since 2004’s The System Has Failed not to feature the former, and the first not to feature the latter since 2007’s United Abominations. These roles have been filled by Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler and Angra guitarist Kiko Loureiro, respectively.
