He Made The Announcement on Social Media

Megadeth has already moved on with a new bassist, but the band’s former bass player David Ellefson has also kept himself busy. He took to social media to tease his new project following his dismissal from Megadeth.

The 56-year old rockstar revealed that his new band The Lucid is set to release its music on September 8, a nine-track LP that perfectly captures their sound and style.

Aside from Ellefson, The Lucid also features vocalist Vinnie Dombroski, guitarist Drew Fortier and drummer Mike Heller. Ellefson already talked about The Lucid in November 2020 during an appearance on “The Chuck Schute Podcast”.

“Drew sent me a track and said, ‘Hey, can you throw a bass on here?’ And I was writing a new ELLEFSON solo record at the time, so my studio ears were on,” Ellefson explained. “I was plugged in and ready to go. He sent it over and I was, like, ‘Yeah, this is freaking cool, man.’ I’d seen Drew play, I know his BANG TANGO history and the other stuff he’s done. But this was really cool stuff that spoke to me.”

“And then he called me up and he said, ‘Hey, Vinnie is gonna come in and write some vocals and lyrics and lay down some tracks.’ And it turned into a thing,” he continued. “They’re good friends. We all met in L.A. We got the songs together and we all met in L.A. in mid-July. I plugged in and banged out 10 songs in two days. And it was fun.”
