2013 looks like it is shaping up to big a big year for "The Big Four". Anthrax have a brand new deluxe version of Worship Music coming, complete with a new E.P full of covers. A new album is expected from the Slayer camp and even Metallica are working on some new music. But the first confirmed album of 100% new material in 2013 from The Big Four is coming from Megadeth.
Megadeth Reveal Super Collider Album, June 2013 UK Tour & New Record Deal
Having had something of a falling out with previous record label Roadrunner Records (with Dave Mustaine criticising them publically on multiple occasions), Megadeth have landed themselves a rather nice deal as a replacement. Messrs Mustaine, Ellefson, Drover and Broderick have joined the roster at Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), who will be releasing the brand new Megadeth album through Dave Mustaine's own newly formed label Tradecraft.
So, onto the new album. Megadeth's fourteenth full length studio album will be landing on shelves this coming June, and has the rather exciting name of Super Collider (which sounds considerably more impressively named than Th1rt3en, their previous album). The exact date has not yet been revealed but it will appear sometime throughout June 2013.
To tie in with the release of Super Collider, Mustaine and co are returning to the UK for a short quarter of headline shows, before hopping into mainland Europe to play at two of the surviving Sonisphere Festivals. Tickets for the UK Megadeth shows will go on sale on Friday 15th of February 2013, priced between £27.50 and £28.50, plus the usual fees. The dates are below:
