Megadeth has made it official, the band's 13th studio album, titled "Th1rt3en," will be released on November 1st, 2011. Dave Mustaine commented, "This record is the culmination of my work over the 13 records I recorded. There are moments on Th1rt3en that capture my every emotion, and other moments where I am releasing feelings I never knew existed! My proudest moments of my musical career are captured on Th1rt3en.”
"Th1rt3en" also marks the recorded return of bassist Dave Ellefson, who was part of the band's classic lineup from 1983 to 2002. In a move that delighted the band's legion of diehards, Ellefson returned to performing live with Megadeth in early 2010 and has remained a fixture on the stage ever since. This is the first time Ellefson has played on a Megadeth record since 2002's "Rude Awakening."
The album's title has several layers of meaning, which front man Dave Mustaine revealed in a recent chat with RollingStone.com, saying, "I was born on September 13th; this is my thirteenth record. It just seemed like it was the right thing to do to call it Th1rt3en."
Megadeth recorded an original track, "Never Dead," specifically for the NeverDead action-adventure video game franchise; that song will appear on "Th1rt3en," as will "Sudden Death," which the band recorded for Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock.
