Megadeth are putting a rush-order on a new album, it seems. The band already said they'd be in the studio this summer and it seems they're far along with their writing.
While their last release, Super Collider did not get many favorable reviews, the album is selling about 300 copies a week and has already racked up 78,000 in sales, which is not too bad, even their their previous album, the poorly titled Th1rt3en, has already sold 120,000 copies.
Anyway, the band is working on new material and bassist David Ellefson was asked by Rock Song Of The Day about it and he mentioned the band taking a different approach:
“Every album offers something a bit different. I think Super Colliderwas this serendipitous moment that encompassed variety from our 30-year career, which was ironic since it actually was our 30-year anniversary last year! It wasn’t planned that way, it just sort of happened.
“But, moving forward there is a feeling within the band now to take a different approach on the next record, one that probably means new locations, new producers/engineers, and so forth.”
Does this mean the band heard their fan's cries? I doubt it. Mustaine, previously, blamed the critics for not liking the album because they only listened to it once. Hopefully, this time, he'll give us a reason to want to listen to it twice.
