Dave Mustaine Gives An Update On The New Megadeth Record

Megadeth vocalist and lead guitarist Dave Mustaine revealed a recent update about the upcoming album of the band during an episode of his own show, ‘The Dave Mustaine Show,’ and stated that all of the vocals are done for the record, ‘The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead except for one and the next step is to focus on the back vocals.

As you might know, Megadeth released its latest album, ‘Dystopia’ back on January 22, 2016, and it received favorable reaction both from critics and fans since the album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart on top of winning the first Grammy of the band for Best Metal Performance at the 59th Grammy Awards with its title track.

Since then, Megadeth has been working on the follow-up to their fifteenth studio album, ‘Dystopia’ for quite some time and Dave Mustaine revealed that the band had already recorded 18 songs for their new album, ‘The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead’ back in June 2020, and fans are waiting for the release date which is most likely going to be in this year.

While there is only little left to finish the album completely as the band’s co-founder revealed in numerous interviews and social media posts, recently, Dave Mustaine revealed further details about the upcoming album, ‘The Sick, The Dying, And The Dead.’

Apparently, Mustaine only has one song left to sing and the rest of the vocals on the record is completely finished, he revealed that from now on they are going to focus on the back vocals in addition to the details on the guitar solos which will eventually lead them to the final product.

Here is what Mustaine said:

“Thankfully, my partner is coming back out to Nashville, and we’re gonna be commencing on some guitar tracks and solos and some ear candy to wrap all that up. We’ve got probably about another… I’ve got one song left to sing, and then another song I’ve got one sentence that I’ve gotta finish. Other than that, all the vocals are done on this record, and it’ll be time to focus now on background vocals and the remaining stuff with solos and, as we say…

I know I’ve said it so many times — ‘ear candy.’ For you guys that don’t know what that is, it’s just what it sounds like — it’s sticky, sappy, syrupy crap people put on records that help to — I don’t know — make the song sound”
