Megadeth have released an animated video for their track “The Threat Is Real.”
The video follows the streaming of previous track “Fatal Illusion”, both of which are set to feature on the band’s new album, Dystopia, scheduled for release on the 22nd of January.
“The Threat Is Real” was recently released as a 12-inch vinyl single as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday event. It featured Megadeth’s cover of FEAR’s “Foreign Policy” on the B-side.
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.”
