Megadeth has posted the third installment in a series of videos documenting the band recording its fourteenth studio album. It can be found below.
The latest video footage features guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine, drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick recording tracks at Vic’s Garage studio in San Marcos, California during the first week of January.
The new, currently untitled album is being produced by Grammy nominated producer/engineer/mixer/musician and songwriter Johnny K, who worked with Megadeth on their 2011 album ‘THIRT3EN’ and has produced albums for several well-known hard rock and metal bands, including Disturbed, Staind and Machine Head.
Furthermore, in a statement issued on Facebook, Mustaine revealed that he and his family have been working in secret to raise funds for a soup kitchen and ministry in Haiti called, ‘Outside The Bowl.’
In the statement, Mustaine thanked both his fans and critics for their part in making the soup kitchen a reality. He explained that once the charity is up and running, 8,000 meals a day will be fed to the less fortunate.
His message read:
“I just wanted to take this time on a peaceful Sunday to stop and thank you for your tremendous support. I know not everyone here is a fan, but that’s ok too; this message will be waiting for you when you change your opinion of me/us.
“Until then, I want to sincerely thank those of you for something you have no idea that you’ve done, but that is really a righteous and unbelievable thing to do. You see, all faults aside, I really am trying to live my life differently today, and part of that was in finding something to believe in.
“One of the things that has happened since I started this transformation is getting involved with helping widows and orphans, and helping the homeless. Now, here’s what you’ve done…
“I was approached with an opportunity, and thanks to your unwavering support, my family and I have been able to fund a soup kitchen in Haiti with a ministry called, “Outside The Bowl,” and you will be proud to know that when it is started (which will be very soon), we will be feeding up to 8,000 meals a day to the less fortunate.
“I am so very grateful, and I love you all so very much (yes, even you haters), because even when I am being vilified and having my character assassinated, I can find comfort knowing up to 8,000 meals will be served each day, along with a healthy serving of love and some spiritual nourishment as well.
“Again, I cannot thank you enough.
“Love and bruises,
