MEGADETH Release The Official Video "Post American World"

Megadeth have released a new music video for their single "Post American World."

Mustaine told the Houston Press that he considered "Post American World" to be a spiritual (and riff-wise) follow-up to MEGADETH's popular track "Symphony Of Destruction". He also said: “Post American World was an eerie video shoot right from the beginning. Shot in just one day with only our guitars and drums, I knew that this was going to be amazing. There’s something to be said about the simplicity of an artist and only his guitar or drums. This is a less-is-more concept, and director Jake Macpherson nailed it.”

"Dystopia" shifted 49,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending January 28. In terms of pure album sales, "Dystopia" opened with 48,000 copies, marking MEGADETH's highest-charting album since 1992's "Countdown To Extinction" debuted and peaked at No. 2 on the chart dated August 1 of that year. "Dystopia" also logged the group's best sales week since 2007, when "United Abominations" landed at No. 8 with first-week sales of 54,000.

Megadeth confirmed their North American tour dates with Havok, Metal Church, Amon Amarth, and, Suicidal Tendencies. There will be 18-show run starting from September 20, with tickets on sale on July 22 (Friday). 

The video features what is likely Chris Adler's last appearance with the band, as just last week Megadeth confirmed their new permanent drummer will be Dirk Verbeuren, formerly of Soilwork. Meanwhile, Verbeuren’s former band Soilwork have wished him well with his new position. Vocalist Bjorn ’Speed’ Strid says: “Together we have created a beast of a band. I strongly believe this is very much a new era for us – and that we still have so much left to say.”
