Watch: DAVE MUSTAINE Goes Incognito And Hands Picks Out To Kids Before MEGADETH Show

Like Santa, but with metal.

Megadeth Mustaine

Megadeth is out on tour with Lamb Of God, Trivium, and In Flames for their Metal Tour Of The Year, and clearly Dave Mustaine is finding good ways to entertain himself (and others). Mustaine posted a video of himself wearing a hoodie and getting into the stands before any of the bands played to hand out picks to kids. Judging by the looks on the parents' face when they see someone filming, they've got no idea what's happening (or just haven't recognized Mustaine).

Megadeth is gearing up to release their new record The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead on (so far) July 8. Mustaine said in an interview that the band is planning to release a new single "Killing Time" to radio "any day now."

"We know that the whole entire thing is scheduled for July 8th. And the hopes are that we stay on schedule with that. And I know that we've got a single that is gonna be serviced to radio any day now. It's a song called 'Killing Time'. Obviously, that's [written about] somebody in my past, but it's not as obvious as it sounds; it's wasting your time, not time to kill things. And it had to do with some of the situations that myself and the different band guys have gotten themselves into with the band over time. And I'm sure a lot of people are gonna relate with that. So that one, it's gonna be sent to radio, gosh, any day now."

Mustaine recently revealed in an interview with Jose Mangin of SiriusXM Liquid Metal that The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead features bass parts by Steve Di Giorgio of Testament in place of David Ellefson. Ellefson was fired from Megadeth back in May 2021 after a highly-publicized sexual affair and was removed from the album.

In the same interview, Mustaine said "we might [play new material on the current tour]. We've been talking about… there's a song called 'Nightstalker' which is a brutal song. I can't remember if that was the fastest one or not." The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead also features covers of Dead Kennedys' "Police Truck" and Sammy Hagar's "This Planet's On Fire" featuring vocals from Hagar himself.
