Dave Mustaine hints Megadeth will re-record debut album with Kiko and Dirk

Posted by on May 2, 2017

Megadeth’s debut album Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good! turns 32 this year and it seems Dave Mustaine is working on re-recording it. The frontman wanted to re-record this album for a special 30-year-anniversary edition back in 2015, however, Dystopia took precedence. Back then he stated,

“It’s not a rumor. It’s the thirtieth anniversary of it, so they wanted to remix it, and… I thought it would be better if we just completely re-recorded it with this new lineup, ’cause I think that would be really exciting, but we were in the process of making the new record.”

In a recent Twitter Q&A with fans, Mustaine hinted the re-recording is in the works, with the current lineup expressing, “we have plans for something with Killing coming up I’m sure you will like.” Another fan assumed, “I imagine a re-recording with Kiko and Dirk…Am I wrong?” Mustaine replied twice with, “well, yes,” followed by, “No ;)”

Additionally, fans praised the new album asking if there will be a live release from the Dystopia tour. The frontman hinted once again with, “We are discussing it and I will confirm as soon as I can.”

Megadeth are touring with Scorpions this fall, and we can only assume that one or the other (or both) might officially be announced between now and then.
