MEGADETH are once again up for a Grammy at this year’s awards ceremony
The iconic thrash metal band is up for “Best Metal Performance” for the song “We’ll Be Back” which comes off their new, critically acclaimed album “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” (UMe).
“I am so happy to be nominated again,” says MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine. “I am still on a high from our last win, and this is just surreal. After all the hard work put in by my team, this moment is for them to share in the celebration as well!”
MEGADETH previously won the 2017 Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance” for the title track of the band’s 2016 album “Dystopia“, marking the group’s twelfth nomination in this category.
“The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” arrived on top of the charts upon it’s first week of sales, taking the No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 as well as number ones on Top Album Sales, Top Current Albums Sales, Top Rock & Alternative Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Hard Rock Albums.
