It has been confirmed by Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson that the band will, in fact, not be breaking up. This follows in the wake of news that guitarist Chris Broderick and drummer Shawn Drover have left the band.

“As you can probably tell by me being here today, we are not disbanding. As of right now, we are looking at all the options, of which there are many. We’ll certainly continue working on the new songs for the next record, Hopefully that brings everyone up to speed on things as of today. Thank you for all of your kind words, concerns and support to us.”
