Thrash metal giants Megadeth have officially unveiled the cover of their forthcoming release "Super Collider." Set for a June 4 release via Dave Mustaine's Universal-powered label Tradecraft, the new record will mark the 14th release in the band's catalogue.
Apart from presenting us with the cover artwork, the group has also posted a 45-second snippet of the new song titled "Don't Turn Your Back."

Mustaine has recently confirmed David Draiman as the special guest vocalist on "Super Collider," commenting that the new songs sound "amazing." Country legend Willie Nelson was also mentioned as a possible guest singer, but no official confirmation has been released yet.
According to frontman, the inspiration for the new album title came from the so called "God Particle" and the Hadron Collider particle accelerator. Some of the new song titles also include "Forget To Remember,""Dance In The Rain,""The Blackest Crow,""Burn" and "King Maker."
As far as the live dates go, the four-piece is preparing to embark on a US tour with heavy metal legends Iron Maiden this September. With a total of seven concerts, the tour is set for a culmination during a final performance in San Bernandino, California on September 13. Apart from Maiden and Megadeth, "The Battle of San Bernandino" will also feature Anthrax, Testament, Overkill and Sabaton.
