Following a series of vague announcements regarding the new Megadeth record, frontman Dave Mustaine has confirmed that the band will start "piecing together" the new effort once the upcoming world tour is wrapped up.
Chatting with 100.3 Jack FM radio, Dave explained that a major 2015 US tour announcement is coming soon, just to touch on the matter of fresh music.
"We leave in about two-and-a-half weeks for a 26-nation tour and then we're gonna start piecing together little tidbits for the next record," the frontman said.
So if the prospect of a new album from Dave and co. doesn't make you happy, here's something that will - Megadeth rocking out with Nicolas Cage. The photo was recently shared via the band's official Facebook page.
