MEGADETH’s latest album, “Super Collider”, has sold 67,000 copies in the United States since its June 4 release. The CD arrived in stores via MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft, distributed by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). It marks MEGADETH’s first release since the band’s split with Roadrunner Records.
In a recent interview with Metal Insider, MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson stated about the band’s decision to release the new album via the group’s own label, “The whole imprint idea is that we pretty much just put our logo on our own record [laughs], but we use the muscle of Universal Music Group around the world to push it out and to use all of their marketing and distribution, which is what you want.
