Ellefson and Young reunited on stage on May 10 at Ultimate Jam Night at the famed Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California, as part of a special tribute to the “Big Four” of 1980s thrash metal — METALLICA, MEGADETH, SLAYER and ANTHRAX.
Just last month, Ellefson told The Neurotic Guitarist that he and Young “have been working on a couple of new songs.”
