“We’ll Be Back” was the first that Megadeth released from the new album back in June with an accompanying short film titled “We’ll Be Back: Chapter I” which was the first part of a trilogy of videos linked by record. The second, “Nightstalkers: Chapter II,” was released in late July with the song “Night Stalkers,” and features rappers Ice-T. The third single “Soldier On!” came out earlier this month but didn’t include a video, so it’s only a matter of time before we get to see Chapter 3.

“For the first time in a long time, everything we needed on this record is in its place,” frontman Dave Mustaine teased earlier in the summer. “I can’t wait for the public to get their hands on this!”
