Megadeth icon Dave Mustaine and his longtime bandmate, David Ellefson had a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine and made a great announcement about their future projects.
According to the statements of Megadeth frontman, the band is working on a song inspired by KISS’ ‘Beth.’
Here is what Dave Mustaine said:
“We wrote nine really crushing songs for the follow-up to the 2016 album. All we need to do is get in the studio and capture them. We’ve got scratch drum tracks. We just have to get [drummer] Dirk [Verbeuren] to play through the songs once or twice, and then it’s up to me and David and [guitarist] Kiko [Loureiro] to finish.
I said to him, ‘What was the biggest song that Kiss ever had?’ He goes, ‘”Beth.”‘ I said, ‘Yeah, we should write a song like ‘Beth,’ where it’s a ballad and it’s just you singing it. I think you should write a song about what it’s like being in Megadeth with me, because I read all your lyrics, and I know that your lyrics are aimed at me. You’re upset. So why don’t you write about it?”
Dave Mustaine also shared the details of how many tracks he hoped to release in the near future.
Here is what he said:
“It might be two, it might be four.”
Here are the names of the upcoming songs:
“The Dogs of Chernobyl”
“Faster Than Anything Else”
“Rattlehead, Part Two”
