MEGADETH will release 12-inch single, “The Threat Is Real”, next month on Record Store Day’s annual Black Friday bonanza. Besides “The Threat Is Real”, there will be a cover of FEAR‘s “Foreign Policy”. Both songs are taken from MEGADETH‘s upcoming album, “Dystopia”.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.
MEGADETH‘s fifteenth studio album, “Dystopia”, will be released on January 22, 2016. Album was recorded earlier in the year in Nashville, Tennessee and was mixed by Josh Wilbur, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD, ALL THAT REMAINS and GOJIRA.
