MEGADETH’s United Abominations Hits Stores May 15th; On Tour with HEAVEN AND HELL

MEGADETH will release their 11th studio album, United Abominations, May 15 via their new label, Roadrunner Records. Frontman Dave Mustaine recently completed tracking and mixing the album in rural Derbyshire, England with producer Andy Sneap.

Of the new CD, Mustaine says listening to it “puts a smile on the inside of me for the first time in years. We all can smile on the outside, but the project has satisfied me, and I am completely content deep inside. I can’t remember when I had such a pleasant time making a record. It is fast, heavy, melodic, and of course controversial, as well as hooky with some unexpected twists.”

The album was recorded in Los Angeles and England by Mustaine (guitar/vocals) with Glen Drover (guitar), Shawn Drover (drums) and James Lomenzo (bass). “Metal needs a really good old school record again,” says Mustaine. “I believe I have delivered.” The album’s first single is “À Tout Le Monde (Set Me Free),” a newly recorded version of the early MEGADETH classic that now features guest vocals by Cristina Scabbia of LACUNA COIL. The album’s 10 other songs are: “Sleepwalker,” “Washington Is Next!,” “Never Walk Alone…A Call To Arms,” “United Abominations,” “Gears Of War,” “Blessed Be The Dead,” “Play For Blood,” “Amerikhastan,” “You’re Dead” and “Burnt Ice.”

In other news, the band recently announced they’ll tour North America with HEAVEN AND HELL (BLACK SABBATH) and MACHINE HEAD beginning March 11 in Vancouver, BC.

Meanwhile, MEGADETH released the electrifying live DVD, That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires, March 6 via Image Entertainment.
