MEGADETH are gearing up to record their as-yet-untitled new album with producer Johnny Karkazis (MACHINE HEAD, DISTURBED). The album is slated for a fall 2011 release through Roadrunner Records, with drum tracking due to begin next week. Johnny K replaces Andy Sneap behind the board, who was forced to pull out due to scheduling conflicts.
More details will be revealed soon.
In other news, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has launched a new project called RED LAMB with former ANTHRAX guitarist Dan Spitz, ACCEPT bassist Peter Baltes and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN drummer Patrick Johansson. Most of the music will be taken from Spitz's aborted DEUXMONKEY project with ex-CRIMSON GLORY frontman Wade Black, which fell apart when Black quit back in April due to creative differences.
Johnny K is also on board to produce the album.
