Megadeth Announce June Release for Upcoming Album ‘Super Collider’
Big news for Megadeth fans! The thrash legends have unveiled the title of their upcoming 14th studio album, along with the new record label it will come out on and the month of release.
Megadeth's 14th full-length will be titled 'Super Collider' and will hit stores in June of this year. Additionally, after releasing three albums with Roadrunner Records ('United Abominations,' 'Endgame,' + 'TH1RT3EN'), Megadeth will unleash 'Super Collider' on frontman Dave Mustaine's own label, Tradecraft, which will be powered by Universal.
"It was a real thrill for us to learn there was an opportunity to join Universal," says Mustaine. "It seems like every time you see a great band or music video￼, it comes from a Universal label … Being with Universal is by far the most exciting and prestigious home￼ for Megadeth ever! We are electrified with what the future holds and the possibilities such a powerhouse like Universal will bring for us all.
Mustaine continues, "We have worked with some great people over the years, and it is amazing to see so many of them on the Universal team for our new record, 'Super Collider.' If Megadeth being here isn't satiating enough, having Tradecraft as my own label is going to be really amazing for metal bands around the world."
Mustaine adds that the split with Roadrunner was amicable, with the band simply having honored their contract with the label. "We completed our contract with them, which not a lot of many metal bands have the luxury to have been able to complete contracts. They usually either break up or quit or give up and stuff like that, but we were honorable and finished our contract with them and we moved on. And we've actually got a fantastic relationship with a brand new label. We have eleven songs already recorded. We wanna give them thirteen, 'cause, you know, the B-sides and Japanese releases and all that kind of crazy stuff."
Stay tuned for more updates on 'Super Collider' and get ready for the album to drop in June!
