Dave Mustaine recently spoke to Full Metal Jackie about the new album saying, “I think that for the first time now, we’ve actually really embraced that part of us that made us a trashier band. A lot of it was how we were feeling and the way that we were looking at our lives at the time and just being – you know, instead of being disappointed – there’s a difference between having a bad situation and being depressed versus having a bad situation and being pissed and doing something about it.” Check out the track below and look out for Dystopia as it drops on January 22, 2016.
