Shawn Drover & Chris Broderick From Megadeth Quits The Band


Megadeth was being to enter the studio to prepare for a new album release, when Shawn Drover and Chris Broderick decided to go a different route.  Shawn the drummer and Christ their guitarist quit the band with "artistic and musical differences".

Chris Broderick had this to say about the matter: 

Due to artistic and musical differences, it is with great reluctance that I announce my departure from Megadeth to pursue my own musical direction. I want all of you to know how much I appreciate the amount that you the fans have accepted and respected me as a member of Megadeth for the last seven years, but it is time for me to move on. I wish Dave and everyone in Megadeth all the best. I am working on a few things of my own and hope that when they come out, you will all dig it. Until then.

Shawn Drover commented:

After 10 years, I have decided to quit Megadeth to pursue my own musical interests. I want to thank Dave Mustaine and the entire Megadeth family, as well as thanking all the amazing Megadeth fans around the world! I truly appreciate all of you. Stay tuned for info on my next musical journey.

With being down two members and as of now no replacement announced.  I think it's safe to say that the new album will be postponed.
