Former Megadeth Members David Ellefson And Jeff Young Are “Working On A Couple Of New Songs”

David Ellefson is working on new music with his former Megadeth bandmate Jeff Young. According to him, the duo are collaborating “on a couple of new songs.”

Ellefson said the following during an interview with The Neurotic Guitarist at the NAMM convention in Anaheim, CA:

“I’ve been listening to what the fans have been requesting. He and I have actually been working on a couple of new songs.”

He also added:

“When we started filming the Nick Menza documentary, which was back in January, we all came to L.A. and filmed. And we were sitting at the Rainbow [in West Hollywood] one night having dinner, and Jeff goes, ‘Remember those couple of riffs that I had that were from the ‘So Far, So Good… So What!’ tour that were gonna be hoped for to be what would become ‘Rust In Peace’?’ And then he was out of the group by then. And as he hummed them to me, I go, ‘Dude, I totally remember those riffs. I totally remember ’em.’ And they’re kind of complex, kind of music nerdish but cool and heavy. And I go, ‘Oh my God. We’ve gotta get in a frickin’ room and work on these.’ So Mike Heller [FEAR FACTORY], who’s a great producer as well as a drummer, we have put some tracks down. We’ve written songs. Now we just have to get them recorded.”

As previously reported, Ellefson and Young will be joined by another ex-Megadeth member, Chris Poland, during a special set at the Days Of The Dead convention in Rosemont, IL on November 18.
