During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine revealed that the band are planning to release a new song, titled “Killing Time,” in the near future. That track is from the group’s new album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!,” which is currently expected to be released on July 8.
Mustaine said the following:
“We know that the whole entire thing is scheduled for July 8th. And the hopes are that we stay on schedule with that. And I know that we’ve got a single that is gonna be serviced to radio any day now. It’s a song called ‘Killing Time’. Obviously, that’s [written about] somebody in my past, but it’s not as obvious as it sounds; it’s wasting your time, not time to kill things. And it had to do with some of the situations that myself and the different band guys have gotten themselves into with the band over time. And I’m sure a lot of people are gonna relate with that. So that one, it’s gonna be sent to radio, gosh, any day now.”
He continued when asked if the band will perform the song live during their upcoming shows:
“We have this track called ‘Night Stalker’, and we’re hoping to use that as our new opening track. None of us are together yet, so we haven’t had a chance to sit down and start getting all the hiccups worked out of the track other than when we were in the studio together. But once we use that for our opening track, it’s got some sounds in it that is something we’re gonna incorporate into the beginning of our show. And it’s a track that we have… my buddy Ice-T had guested on.”
