Dave Mustaine disclosed the official title of the next Megadeth album while talking with a fan online.

In a video he posted to the fan, you could hear new music playing in the background and he said, “Look over my shoulder, uh oh! There’s the Pro Tools rig with the new album, doing a rough mix, and you’re getting to hear a little bit of it in the background for your birthday.” He said it was the title track: “The Sick, The Dying and The Dead.”

Earlier this year, Mustaine mentioned it as a “tentative” title in hopes that it would be released sometime this year.

As of now, there’s still no released date, however, Mustaine started off by talking about the upcoming tour. He said, “I’m chomping at the metal bit to get back on the road.”

Megadeth is scheduled to hit the road in August.
