MEGADETH Film ‘Super Collider’ VideoSunday, 12th May 2013
On May 10, MEGADETH filmed a video for the first single and title track from the band’s new album, “Super Collider” in Los Angeles. Hunter Elizabeth, a California-based model, actress and songwriter says the video is “about a high-school couple still loving each other after all the years after graduation, and at the 10-year reunion, both characters find themselves successful (a model and a mathematician) and still very in love.”
The track “Super Collider“, which was unveiled to the masses on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show on April 20 and made available on Soundcloud for streaming on April 22. The track was also released digitally on April 23 via iTunes.
MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine told Guitar World Magazine: “That song kind of came from that ‘Symphony Of Destruction’ corner of my mind. You can’t always play aggressive, thrashy stuff. Sometimes those aren’t even songs; they’re like musical rams. But because I’m not a pop guy, I’m also not really comfortable playing sing-along songs. To me, ‘Super Collider‘ made sense like a normal song — a verse-chorus-verse-chorus kind of thing. It’s written the way a real songwriter would write the song, instead of just taking all these musical twists and turns.”
The “Super Collider” album is slated for release on June 4 through Mustaine’s own and brand new label, Tradecraft, which is distributed by Universal Music Enterprises. Horn player Bob Findley — who previously appeared on the track “Silent Scorn” from MEGADETH’s 2001 CD, “The World Needs A Hero” — is a featured guest on the song “A House Divided” on the new album. Other tracks set to appear on the effort include “Forget To Remember”, “Dance In The Rain”, “The Blackest Crow”, “Burn”, “Kingmaker” and “Don’t Turn Your Back”, of which a clip can be streamed at MegadethGame.com.
