MEGADETH Have Their Own Record Label; Announce New Album Title
Megadave promised something megabig when it came to a new label announcement, and he delivered. Earlier today, Megadeth announced they have formed a new record label, under Universal and have an official title and release date for their new record:
“It was a real thrill for us to learn there was an opportunity to join Universal. It seems like every time you see a great band or music video, it comes from a Universal label. Being with Universal is by far the most exciting and prestigious home for Megadeth ever! We are electrified with what the future holds and the possibilities such a powerhouse like Universal will bring for us all.
We have worked with some great people over the years, and it is amazing to see so many of them on the Universal team for our new record, ‘Super Collider‘.”
The name of the label will be Tradecraft, and the first release, Super Collider will be sometime in June.
Of course, people will point to Metallica, who recently launched their own label, and accuse Dave of copying them, but let's be real… this is something pretty much every musician at Dave's stature is looking to accomplish in order to get a bigger piece of the pie. Heck, Rob Zombie just did it too.
Are you pumped for new Megadeth, or have Dave's recent actions soured you on listening to any new music from the ginger thrasher?
