The new song is the latest track taken from their upcoming new album, ‘The Sick…The Dying…And The Dead’, which arrives on September 2.
Megadeth recently shared the first track from their new album, – ‘We’ll Be Back’. It is the first record the band have released since vocalist Dave Mustaine recovered from throat cancer.
The latest single opens with images of war and Frontman Dave Mustaine singing: “Of all the battles won and lost / The lives and treasures that it costs / I know I’ve got to soldier on / Watching mankind destroy itself / Walk straight into the mouth of hell / I know I’ve got to soldier on.”

Speaking about album, ‘The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead’, Mustaine said: “For the first time in a long time, everything that we needed on this record is right in its place. I can’t wait for the public to get hold of this!”
‘The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead’ was recorded at Mustaine’s house and features guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren alongside temporary bassist Steve DiGiorgio, who filled in for David Ellefson who was fired from Megadeth last year following allegations that the bassist had groomed an underage girl online.
