Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Confirms The Bands Free Agent Status, Talks Obama, Lasers & More


Megadeth frontman/guitarist Dave Mustaine has confirmed that the band have completed their contract with Roadrunner Records and are presently weighing their options. Speaking with, Mustaine stated:

“I’m excited about the music that we’re gonna be writing. We just changed agencies; we’re with the prestigious CAA agency in Beverly Hills. We’re gonna be going to sign a new contract for our recording career. Our contract with Roadrunner’s up.

We haven’t really notified anybody what our decision is; we’re still kind of deciding. But for the most part, we’re getting ready to record this next record and I’m sure it’s gonna be chock-full of all kinds of subject matter that our Class Of 2008 has given us.”

In the same interview, which can also be found below, Mustaine went off on various tangents regarding his political viewpoints. Including disputing U.S. President Barack Obama’s birthplace, the TSA and the Picosecond Programmable Laser and much more.
