is already planning a successor to their 2013 album "Super Collider
."It seems that Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman
's premature death in May has shaken their sense of mortality, so they've decided to start booking studio time and keep moving forward."We're planning our next time to go into the studio to start demoing up our next record,"
Mustaine told 93X Radio
while backstage at Rockfest
. "You know, time is short. Nobody knows how long they're gonna live. You see what happened with Jeff Hanneman, so I wanna write as much as I can while I can."
Speaking about the show they were about to perform, Mustaine added that he's "stoked"
to be playing on the same bill as his teenage heroes Kiss
."I remember, 100 years ago when I saw them at Anaheim Stadium back in 1976, it was really cool, it was my first concert. So to play with them in make-up We played with them before in 1988 at Castle Donnington and they weren't wearing make-up. Paul
] was wearing pink stuff on stage. That ain't the Kiss I grew up with!"
