Megadeth’s long-awaited new album, “The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!” is set for release in the spring.

Dave Mustaine revealed the news in a new interview and also talked about the upcoming album’s title track.

Mustaine says the tune is about the 14th century bubonic plague, also called the “Black Death.”

He explained, “It’s a historical journey of how the plague started and where it went, starting with rats on ships carrying the disease, coming ashore in Sicily.”
