David Ellefson Reveals New Album with The Lucid

The Lucid

After teasing a new project last week, David Ellefson has revealed more details of his next venture. The Lucid is a new band featuring the former Megadeth bassist alongside Songe vocalist Vinnie Dombroski, Fear Factory drummer Mike Heller, and guitarist Drew Fortier.

The group will be releasing a new album on October 15th via SpoilerHead Records. According to a press release, the self-titled debut will feature nine “heavy-hitting and emotionally charged tracks showcasing the eclectic quartet’s unique sonic approach.”

Ellefson, who has remained silent on social media since his dismissal from Megadeth, says the effort pushes each member outside of their typical styles.

“It’s been a real blast making a record with these guys and I must say that it’s refreshing to explore some new musical avenues… to step out a bit from what each of us have done stylistically in our own careers,” he says. “There was an effortless synergy that came with creating these songs together which is always amazing when working with new people. I’m looking forward to everyone checking it out!”

The Lucid released the first single from the album called “Maggot Wind”:

Ellefson and Fortier have also announced a pre-order for their found footage horror film Dwellers, which will be released October 12th. The duo will be appearing at Crypticon, Dead Conventions, and the Chiller Theater to support the film.

The Lucid is available for pre-order through Bandcamp.
