Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson has spoken about the band’s forthcoming new album, the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Endgame’, on which they are currently working.

He told UGO: “We are working on it now so it’s a bit early to encapsulate what the final will ultimately sound like. I think we know the punch and impact we want it to have but also not be afraid to let new ideas develop, too. Just know it will be heavy, hooky, and have the trademarks you’d come to expect from us”.

As for when it might be out, he added: “I know the business side want to lock in schedules for release but sometimes you can’t contain a creative process and a schedule. For us, the scheduling is second to making a great record. It will be done when it’s done”.
