MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine recently posted update on his official Twitter page (see below) that writing for band’s forthcoming album is finished. The CD will be the band’s first to feature Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA, and LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler.
In a new tweet, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine wrote: ” I’m stoked so many people have reacted so positively about Kiko and Chris playing on this next record! Falling Upward again!”
He added in a separate tweet: “15 songs finished being written. Just waiting for Jr. [David Ellefson] to arrive. He is gonna freak over Chris and Kiko.”
It was recently confirmed that Kiko Loureiro has officially joined MEGADETH.
Dave Mustaine states: “I first met Kiko around 8 years ago for a cover shoot for Burrn! magazine. I had no idea who he was, other than the fact he was tremendously talented and that the staff from Burrn! held him in high regard. Since then I’ve come to see what a guitar virtuoso he is, and I’m deeply encouraged by his depth and talent. Very few Megadeth alumni have had the same feel and ability as Kiko. As Frank Sinatra says, “the best is yet to come!”
MEGADETH recently released the following official statement confirming the rumours that the band have been working with LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler, who will be guesting on their new studio album. MEGADETH began recording their as yet untitled new album on March 17th in Nashville, TN.
