Three months after he was fired from Megadeth over allegations of sexual misconduct, David Ellefson has resurfaced with a new band, a new album and a tour announcement.

The ousted bassist’s band, The Lucid, also features ex-Sponge singer Vinnie Dombroski, Zen From Mars guitarist Drew Fortier and Fear Factory drummer Mike Heller, Ellefson reveals. The quartet on Wednesday dropped their first single, “Maggot Wind,” from their upcoming self-titled album. And finally, Ellefson has announced The Lucid will kick off a short tour to promote the project on September 10th in Minneapolis.

“It’s been a real blast making a record with these guys,” the Megadeth co-founder says. “And I must say that it’s refreshing to explore some new musical avenues; to step out a bit from what each of us have done stylistically in our own careers.” The album is due October 15th.

Do you suspect this project might have been in the works before Ellefson was fired?
