MEGADETH – New single “Killing Time” to be released “Any Day Now”


Speaking to SiriusXM’s Eddie Trunk, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine discussed the band’s upcoming album, titled The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead. He revealed that a first single will be released “any day now”.

Mustaine: “We know that everything is scheduled for July 8th, and we hope that we will stick to the schedule. I know that we have a single that will be playing on the radio any day. It’s a song titled “Killing Time”. Obviously it’s about someone from my past, but it’s not as obvious as it sounds; it’s wasting your time, not time to kill people. It had to do with some of the situations that myself and the different guys in the band got comfortable with in the band over time, and I’m sure a lot of people will relate to that .”

Anyone who came to a concert last year knows what I mean, except this one will be even better. Don’t miss.”

Randy Blythe, inimitable leader of Lamb Of God, adds: “It was great to hit the road for an amazing tour last summer with Megadeth, Trivium and Hatebreed, so we thought we’d do it again! cities with Megadeth, Trivium, and In Flames, which we’re happy to have for Stage 2!”

Matthew Kiichi Heafy of Trivium adds: “The Metal Tour of the Year was one of the strongest and most incredible metal tours of all time – its namesake is only accurate. How do you track this? By doing it again – even bigger, even better, and playing it wherever it didn’t in the first leg. MTOTYII – let’s do this. “

With In Flames vocalist Anders Fridén saying, “We are thrilled to finally be able to join our dear friends from Megadeth, Lamb Of God and Trivium for this year’s Metal Tour Of The Year!
