David Ellefson says Dave Mustaine cancer treatment is over

David Ellefson said in a recent interview with Pomelo Rocker that Dave Mustaine cancer treatment is over and that there is no release date yet for Megadeth’s new studio album.


David Ellefson said about Mustaine’s treatment:

“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.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
