MEGADETH will cap a summer of successful global touring with the release of its highly anticipated sixteenth studio album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”, on September 2 via UMe.
Featuring twelve new tracks, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! will be made available on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners. There will also be a limited deluxe edition 2LP, 12-track album pressed on 180g black vinyl housed in a numbered gatefold jacket with a 12×24 lyrics/credits insert, a lenticular vinyl lithograph and a bonus seven-inch featuring “We’ll Be Back” and the unreleased B-side “The Conjuring (Live).” The limited deluxe edition can only be purchased via MEGADETH‘s official online store, through Sound Of Vinyl and uDiscover.
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 The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!
