The band revealed the plans after finishing European tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH.
MEGADETH wrote: “We wanted to thank the bands we played with, our amazing hardworking crew who help us put on the best show possible night after night, the venues, security, & our die hard fans who traveled far and wide to see us play.
“It means the world to us! An extra special thank you to Cullen and Ellie at adidas for setting us up with these amazing jackets! Kept us warm in these beautiful frozen European cities.
We are heading home for a brief break, record album 16 and then preparing for our summer tour with LAMB OF GOD, TRIVIUM and IN FLAMES. Get your tickets now, you don’t want to miss what we have planned for you!

Last year, Mustaine talked about the new MEGADETH album with Kerrang.
“We’re trying to keep with that real heavy thing.” Dave said. Dystopia was more of us doing what makes us feel good; there’s a lot of super-heavy, fast drumming at the end of some songs.
“My son was in here two days ago, and when we were doing Dystopia, he was listening to the songs and making comments, and the ones he commented on were the ones that got the best response.
“When he came over this time, we were working on a song that has the tentative title ‘The Dogs Of Chernobyl’, and the intro riff has kind of a Hungarian guitar part, kind of like something MERCYFUL FATE did on ‘Into The Coven’. The song comes in super powerful and strong, and my son goes, ‘Oh god, that’s heavy as hell!’ and I just started laughing.”
