Megadeth’s explosive new album The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead! will melt fans’ minds with new songs like “We’ll Be Back,” the radio hit “Soldier On!” and “Night Stalkers” featuring the icon Ice-T.
Produced by Dave Mustaine and Chris Rakestraw, The Sick, The Dying... And The Dead! is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed and Grammy award-winning album, Dystopia. Lead single “Soldier On!” is an instant Megadeth classic and an example of the band’s ability to blend stylistic elements from both the metal and rock ends of the musical spectrum. While Megadeth are rightfully regarded as the world’s “State of the Art Speed Metal Band,” from their earliest days some of the band’s biggest songs have arisen when they’ve let off the gas pedal a little, while still maintaining the aggression.
Dave Mustaine explains, “Coming to the realization that you need to walk away from a relationship that’s very toxic, and how hard it can be to start down that road. But you know you need to, and just taking that first step is the hardest part. Whatever your leaving does to them, you have to block that part out, stay the course and do what’s right for you. It will be hard in the beginning, but you have got to live for yourself to be worth a damn to anyone else. You’ve got to Soldier On!”
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! is available on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners. The limited deluxe edition 2LP is pressed on 180g black vinyl and housed in a numbered gatefold jacket with a 12x24 insert, a lenticular lithograph, and a bonus 7-inch featuring “We’ll Be Back” and the unreleased b-side “The Conjuring (Live).”
