It’ll be a little bit longer before you hear the new Megadeth album.

In an interview with Forbes, frontman Dave Mustaine shares that the long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Dystopia is now expected to arrive this summer.

“I know that our actual official record release date had gotten moved back again with all of the distribution stuff, and all of these issues with getting product from one place to the next with record plants making vinyl,” Mustaine explains. “We’re not reliant on vinyl so much but just the whole process has been delayed, so it’s just gotten moved back again.”

“I believe at the time when the record comes out this summer we’ll be on a tour that we’re going to be announcing,” he adds. “But I can’t really get into that right now because I don’t know for sure the dates.”

Mustaine previously told American Songwriter that the record, titled The Sick, the Dying…and the Dead!, was set for release this spring.

While you wait for the record to arrive, you can replay the 12-second clip of the new song “Life in Hell,” which Mustaine shared in a recent Cameo video.

You can also catch Megadeth live on the 2022 leg of the Metal Tour of the Year, kicking off in April. The bill also includes Lamb of God, Trivium and In Flames.
