Megadeth Revealed Working on New Music
Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has revealed that the band is currently working on new material, HenneMusic reports.

Ellefson posted the following about the band's recording progress:

"Dave [Mustaine] and I are in the studio this week in California working up some of the new riffs," posted Ellefson. "We're having fun, just throwing it down and keeping it chill. These are essentially writing demos at this point so just grinding out the tunes like a metal band should. More to come..."

The news comes after drummer Shawn Drover stated that he and Mustaine were also working on demos for new material.

Dave Mustaine recently hinted in an interview with Full Metal Jackie that the band may be looking to tap producer Max Norman for the new record. Norman, who has recently returned to producing music, worked with the band on two of the group's classic albums, "Countdown to Extinction" and "Youthanasia:"

"He had gotten out of making records and he's back into making records and I thought, 'I wonder what it would be like to maybe try one song with this guy and see if we can catch lightning twice,'" the frontman told Full Metal Jackie. "It's just neat to be in that position where you can do stuff like this."
