Megadeth is slated to release their long-awaited new album this year, and now we know what it might be called. According to Dave Mustaine during a talk with a fan at the Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp, the new album might be called The Sick, The Dying And The Dead, though that's subject to change.
"The tentative album title we have right now is called 'The Sick, The Dying And The Dead'. We may change that, because there's some other titles, and I usually change the titles four or five times before I settle on anything."
Mustaine also played the fan a clip over Zoom, but it's really hard to hear. Megadeth recently said they have a due date for the new album, meaning things probably have to be wrapped up pretty soon.
In recent interviews, Mustaine said the new material is up there with Countdown to Extinction and Rust in Peace, and bassist David Ellefson has called the record "insanely progressive". New drummer Dirk Verbeuren (ex-Soilwork) may have also contributed a song to the record.
