Megadeth are streaming their new track “The Threat Is Real.”
The song is the lead track from the band’s new album, Dystopia, due for release on the 16th of January 2016.
“The Threat Is Real” is being released as a 12-inch vinyl single as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. It features a B-side of the band’s cover of FEAR’s “Foreign Policy.”
Says Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine of Dystopia: “I’ve had this outlook for a long time that the world is a really good place with some bad people in it. If you were to take a consensus of people, they know the difference between right and wrong.
“But lately there’s been a decline in how people treat one another. That’s where Dystopia comes in. If people start loving each other and helping those in need – when that becomes more important than power, fame or money – then I think we’re going to be okay.”
