MEGADETH'S VITAL 'PEACE SELLS... BUT WHO'S BUYING?' ALBUM REMASTERED AND EXPANDED FOR 25TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE 5DISC+3LP BOX SET

Commemorative Release Includes New Liner Notes by Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and Metallica's Lars Ulrich

Megadeth's vital, Platinum-certified album, Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?, has been digitally remastered for the first time and expanded for a commemorative 25th Anniversary release on July 12 by Capitol/EMI. A deluxe 5Disc+3LP box set, include a previously unreleased 1987 concert from the band's first world tour and new liner notes written by Megadeth's Dave Mustaine and Metallica's Lars Ulrich.

The deluxe box set also includes previously unreleased and rare mixes of the album's tracks and hi res audio for the remastered album and concert, as well as an expanded 20-page book, plus 8''x10'' photos and reproductions of vintage Megadeth memorabilia. The cover of the box uses a new, unique process of lenticular 3D which reinterprets the original cover, creating the illusion of Megadeth's Vic Rattlehead character jumping out of the art.

Released in 1986, Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? was Megadeth's second album and the band's first Capitol/EMI release. The acclaimed album thrust Megadeth into the international spotlight, and it remains a powerful thrash metal staple.

In his liner notes for the new edition, Dave Mustaine reflects on writing the album's title track: ''I had written other lyrics by now, but there was something different about 'Peace Sells' because it told my story about my faith; my beliefs; my distrust of government; my work ethic; my integrity. This was MY song.''

''If there's a new way, I'll be the first in line''

''Amen!,'' continues Mustaine. ''I was so tired of not shaving, not bathing, not eating, not having a home, a companion, NOTHING. Yeah, I'll be the first in line, but it had better work this time. Well, it was working, thank God, just fast enough for what I needed, but not nearly as fast as I would hope.''

''Whether you heard this record for the first time in 1986, or you hear this record for the first time today or tomorrow, Peace Sells is a great heavy metal album,'' writes Lars Ulrich in his liner notes for the new edition. ''Nothing more, nothing less. It has stood the test of time. And will continue to do so.''

Dave Mustaine pioneered the hugely successful Megadeth after his departure from Metallica. Beginning with the band's 1985 debut album, Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!, and evolving through a shifting series of lineups, Megadeth has crafted a dynamic, intelligent style that combines the aggressiveness of thrash metal, the improvisational nature of jazz, and cynical, articulate, politically-charged lyrics into an innovative mix that has built a rabid worldwide following.

For nearly three decades, Megadeth has taken heavy metal into the future - musically, lyrically, and culturally. The band has enjoyed great success on Billboard's album and single charts, including three Top 10 titles on the Top 200 Albums chart and four Top 10 Modern Rock singles, ''Almost Honest,'' ''Trust,'' ''Breadline,'' and ''Crush 'Em.''

With defiance and grace, through unusual quality and intelligence, Megadeth has raised a generation on a diet of truth serum and bitter pills. Instead of being kicked to the curb for their insolence, they've been rewarded with nine Grammy Award nominations, six Gold, five Platinum, and one double Platinum albums, and three Gold-certified DVD releases, in addition to last year's double Platinum concert DVD, The Big 4: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria.

Megadeth is currently on tour in Europe. On April 23, Megadeth will again join forces with Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax for The Big Four Festival in Indio, California, and The Big Four have confirmed several European shows for July. Megadeth will also play more than 20 North American dates in July and August on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with Disturbed, Godsmack, Machine Head, In Flames and Trivium.
