Thrash Metal pioneers and icons MEGADETH will cap a summer of successful global touring with the release of their highly anticipated 16th studio album, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! Featuring twelve new tracks. The first song to be released from The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! is the ferocious, quintessentially MEGADETH track “We’ll Be Back,” which is accompanied by the world premiere of We’ll Be Back: Chapter I, an epic, action-packed short film chronicling the origins of MEGADETH’s mascot, Vic Rattlehead. Produced by Dave Mustaine, We’ll Be Back: Chapter I is a soldier’s tale of bravery, personal sacrifice, and the will to survive. It is the first installment of a trilogy of videos to be released in conjunction with the release of the new album . Reuniting visionary MEGADETH leader and sonic architect Dave Mustaine with co-producer Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Parkway Drive), who together helmed 2016’s Dystopia, the album was recorded at Mustaine’s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren. Bassist Steve DiGiorgio temporarily stepped in to record the album–with the kick off of MEGADETH’s recent tour, Megadeth-alumni James LoMenzo rejoined the MEGADETH family as permanent bass player.
