MEGADETH - “The Threat Is Real” Track Streaming; Black Friday / Record Store Day 12” To Include Two New Album Tracks

Megadeth’s anxiously-awaited fifteenth studio album, Dystopia, is due out on January 22nd via Univeral Music Enterprises. The album’s title track is now streaming below (limited to certain territories), or at megadeth.com.

Megadeth’s landmark second album Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? included an iconic track that’s gone down in Megadeth (and metal) history: “Black Friday”. Now, in honour of Record Store Day’s Black Friday 2015, Megadeth will be releasing a special 12’’ vinyl single for “The Threat is Real”.  Only a limited amount of copies will be pressed in the U., and the b-side is another brand new recording – Megadeth’s version of Fear’s punk classic “Foreign Policy”, which will be unavailable on any other format until its official release on Dystopia. The 12’’ will be available at all participating physical and online retailers on November 27th while “The Threat Is Real” will be available digitally.

In the words of Dave Mustaine, “Support Record Store Day Black Friday - or else!”

Exclusive hand-signed bundles for the upcoming Dystopia album are now available for pre-order in the official Megadeth store.
