MEGADETH unleashed the official single “Soldier On!” from their new studio album The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! to be released on September 2 via UMe.
“Soldier On!” is an example of the band’s ability to blend stylistic elements from both the metal and rock sides of the musical spectrum. While MEGADETH is regarded as the world’s ‘State of the Art Speed Metal Band’, from their earliest days, some of the band’s biggest songs emerged when they let off the gas pedal.
The track revolves around the idea of “Coming to the realization that you need to walk away from a relationship that’s very toxic, and how hard it can be to start down that road,” said Dave Mustaine. “But you know you need to, and just taking that first step is the hardest part. Whatever your leaving does to them, you have to block that part out, stay the course and do what’s right for you. It will be hard in the beginning, but you have got to live for yourself to be worth a damn to anyone else. You’ve got to ‘Soldier On!’”
MEGADETH’s official single “Soldier On!” will be impacting Active Rock Radio on August 16 and can be listened to, HERE.
MEGADETH will release their highly anticipated 16th studio album, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! featuring twelve new tracks on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners, pre-order/pre-save, HERE.
