A new video clip of drummer Chris Adler rehearsing a new MEGADETH song prior to laying it down in the studio can be seen below.
PledgeMusic recently announced its partnership MEGADETH. The band has enteredLattitude Studio South in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee to begin recording its fifteenth album and the group wants to bring its fans along for the ride.
For the first time, MEGADETH is going to bring you into the studio to be a part of the recording process, and give you a window into the world of guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine, guitarist Kiko Loureiro, bassist David Ellefson and Adler.
Some of the exclusive items available when you pledge are a pre-order the album digitally, on CD or vinyl, a signed copy of Dave Mustaine‘s book, a signed copy of David Ellefson‘s book, a two-hour guitar lesson with Dave Mustaine, a day in the studio with MEGADETH, signed guitars, Chris Adler‘s drum kit, a disposable camera with one-of-a-kind photos from the studio, a jam session with the band and much more.
No matter what you order, you will get access to a variety of behind-the-scenes content such as photos and videos from the writing and recording sessions. You’ll get full access to the process in real time.
Mustaine‘s message to MEGADETH fans about the campaign: “We’ve always wanted you to be ‘a part of’ and not ‘apart from’ us in the studio. Now, with PledgeMusic, you can be here with me and the guys and watch history being made with our fifteenth record. Check back often… you don’t want to miss anything!”
In a statement, MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine called Chris “a tremendous talent” and “an amazing person” who is “going to bring a new level of excitement and energy toMEGADETH that the fans are going to lose their minds over.”
Adler was equally excited about playing with MEGADETH, saying: “I’m coming into this on fire. There is an incredible amount of respect, but the goal here is to make the very best thrash album we can — not just throw names in the CD booklet or be a ‘yes’ man. Together, I believe we can do something very special.”
