Megadeth won the “Best Metal Performance” award at the 59th Grammy Awards. For this reason, Dave Mustaine seems quite joyful right now. He deserves to be, of course.
Speaking in an interview by Loudwire, Dave Mustaine spoke about the upcoming Megadeth album. He explains that, will Megadeth write song on current political situation of United States of America? Here’s the statement:
“I’m not really focusing on songwriting right now so I don’t really know how to answer that question. Right now we’re so busy with the new record and the success of the tour and all the awards. Everything that’s come along with this campaign, especially having Kiko [Loureiro, guitar] and Dirk [Verbeuren, drums] in the band now with Chris Adler coming in and being a session drummer for us to help us get the record done.
Getting Dirk into the band now it’s great because we feel like we’re a band again. Not that we didn’t with any of the previous guys before but when we had the setback, we had a couple people that needed to be replaced, that’s a difficult thing to do. When you have to decide, “Hey, this is somebody who I’m going to be spending the rest of my life with,” because … I mean, whether you…
Think about it. Soon as you get into a group with another person it’s forever. Whether it lasts forever or not the connection is forever. I think that’s kind of more about what I was focusing on than any kind of politics or anything right now.“
Megadeth’s latest album, Dystopia, was released last year and won a Grammy award as you know it. According to an interview in Loudwire, Megadeth’s new album can be released as early as 2018.
