Pioneer thrash rock band Megadeth has announced today that they will give their fans the ultimate cutting edge experience in Virtual Reality.
Next Galaxy Corp., a leading developer of innovative content solutions and immersive consumer virtual reality technology will create a dystopian universe surrounding the band, and allow fans to virtually enter, engage and explore this parallel world.
The band will head into a special Virtual Reality set-up with director Blair Underwood where they will perform and film five songs from Dystopia, “Fatal Illusion,” “Dystopia,” The Threat Is Real,” “Poisonous Shadows,” and “Post American World.” As a director, DGA member Underwood directed the 2009 independent feature “The Bridge to Nowhere,” as well as several music videos, short films and commercials.
He is currently recurring on ABC’s hit series, “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The band’s performance will appear within the fallen city of a dystopian world modeled after the world created in Megadeth’s new music video for “The Threat Is Real.”
The album is scheduled for release on January 22 2016, when fans will be able to purchase the new album, a CEEK Virtual Reality cardbox headset with instructions, and a download code to access and unlock exclusive content, which will also be simultaneously launched with the release of Dystopia to begin their VR Experience. This special CD package will be available at all physical and online retailers.
