DAVID ELLEFSON Says MEGADETH Is Working On 'Pretty Kick-Ass' New Album
In a brand new interview with Hot Metal, MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson would neither confirm nor deny rumors that the band has enlisted guitarist Kiko Loureiro of ANGRA and drummer Chris Adler of LAMB OF GOD to play on MEGADETH's next studio album.
“It's not quite there yet; it's not something I'm at liberty to talk about," he answered when asked about the rumors. "We're just returning to the studio. Rehearsals are continuing before the final stages of the pre-production before we get started writing."
Asked how the recording is going and what the music sounds like, Ellefson said: "The writing is pretty much done [but] that can always change in the studio. We'll go into the recording, probably, in early May."
He continued: "We had some tour dates in August. Those tour dates got moved, which, quite honestly, is a good thing because it frees us up and gives us time to make the record with a schedule that's a little more appropriate for how we want to make a great record. So sometime within the next year, we will get the MEGADETH record out."
Ellefson added: "I'd like to think it's not going to be a stinker! I'd like to think it's going to be a pretty kick-ass record. There're a couple of things on there that are very heavy, but they're very forward-thinking for MEGADETH… in a good way. Not some sort of pop right turn or anything like that.
"When the record says MEGADETH on it, you're going to get MEGADETH inside of it."
MEGADETH has yet to officially announce replacements for drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick, who quit the group last year.
