MEGADETH leader Dave Mustaine said in an interview that the band is planning its own festival event “Kegadeth” to coincide with the release of their next album. Kegadeth is touted as a “metal music and craft beer festival.” MEGADETH’s upcoming effort will mark the group’s first release to feature drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who officially joined the band more than two years ago. 2016’s “Dystopia” was MEGADETH’s first album with guitarist Kiko Loureiro, who was previously best known for his work with ANGRA.  in addition Mustaine mentioned the Megacruise, a Megadeth-themed and curated cruise ship that was teased last week, though more details are still forthcoming.
