MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson was interviewed by Shan Man of the Phoenix, Arizona radio station 98 KUPD for the latest installment of “Tasting Coffee With The Shan Man”. You can now watch the chat below.
MEGADETH has apparently decided against re-signing with Roadrunner Records for the follow-up to last year’s “TH1RT3EN”. Writing on his official Twitter account, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine stated, “[Sunday, December 9] marks the end of an era with Roadrunner @rrusa. Hopefully we can finish strong with a #Grammy.”
MEGADETH has released three studio albums through Roadrunner: 2007’s “United Abominations”, 2009’s “Engame” and the aforementioned “TH1RT3EN”.
“TH1RT3EN” has sold around 119,000 copies in the United States since its November 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. A track from the CD, “Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)”, is nominated in the “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” category at the 55th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on Sunday, February 10, 2013 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
