Check out the fan-filmed video footage of MEGADETH‘s June 27th performance at The Fillmore in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania below.
Dave Mustaine discussed MEGADETH‘s latest album “Dystopia” with The Richmond Register, saying:
“What’s cool about this record is that we are doing solos again. We are bringing guitar solos back to metal. Good solos. Memorable solos. Not just screaming, yanking, pedaling and whammy bar stuff.”
MEGADETH is planning on returning to the studio at the end of the year to begin work on the follow-up to “Dystopia” album.
The band is currently touring North America with MESHUGGAH and will play arenas later in the year as the support act for German hard rock veterans SCORPIONS.
MEGADETH‘s latest album, “Dystopia” opened with 48,000 copies, marking MEGADETH‘s highest-charting album since 1992’s “Countdown To Extinction” debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated August 1 of that year. “Dystopia” also logs the group’s best sales week since 2007, when “United Abominations” landed at No. 8 with first-week sales of 54,000.
