Megadeth vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine has completed his throat cancer treatments according to his Megadeth bandmate, bassist David Ellefson. In the below interview with Pomelo Rocker, Ellefson said of Mustaine‘s current health status:

“With Dave‘s throat cancer treatments that he has now completed, and he’s just going through the recovery now, we’re hopeful and optimistic about a full recovery for him with that. Once he’s through that process, we’re gonna just let that take as much time as it needs, and then we’ll resume with the album. I’d like to hope maybe 2020 we’ll be able to get a new album out.”

Ellefson did go on to say that he hopes Mustaine will be “ready to go” for the band’s early 2020 European/UK tour with Five Finger Death Punch and Bad Wolves. The dates for that run include:
