MEGADETH: 'Back To The Start' Greatest-Hits Album Gets A Release Date

ABC ePrep is reproting that MEGADETH's greatest hits album, "Back to the Start", will be released on June 28. You may recall that the band asked fans to vote for the songs to be included on the album via a poll on their web site.

The 17-track compilation will be released as a CD and as a limited-edition CD/DVD set. The DVD portion of the CD/DVD set includes a new video for the song "Kill the King", which was edited from previous music videos and behind-the-scenes footage. It also includes seven previously unreleased live performances drawn from MEGADETH's 1999 "Risk" tour, plus a preview of a forthcoming DVD called "Arsenal of Megadeth". That DVD will be a double-disc career retrospective featuring videos, concert footage, interviews, and home movies guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine shot on the road. "Arsenal of Megadeth" will be out in the fall.
