Megadeth bassist guitarist David Ellefson interview with The Metal Voice that the band was normally planning on starting the studio in March. But they don’t start because of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. He just talks about the progress of the new album songwriting and recording sessions for the follow-up to 2016’s “Dystopia”. Nearly all live events and tour dates postponed to the coming months. We also mention David Ellefson donate his upcoming album.
Megadeth member David Ellefson talks about the new album:
“We’ve been working on it, and it’s written, and it’s ready to be recorded. In fact, we were gonna start recording it toward the end of March. But, of course, all of this happened. We ended up having to cancel out of the Hell & Heaven Fest in Mexico City, which I think was March 15th. And right after that, we were gonna go to Nashville and get started cutting tracks, but with everything shutting down like this, we obviously have to put health matters for us…
And it isn’t just the four of us — you go in the studio, and now you’ve got a whole staff of people in studios and carting services and all kinds of other services that go along with making records. Everybody’s locked down right now. So once the lockdown lifts and it’s safe to go back to — I hate to say ‘normal life’. But it’s safe to basically engage in that again, we will absolutely be ready to rock.”
