Like Eisley and Amanda Palmer before it, Megadeth is using crowdfunding to raise money for its new record. The group has teamed up with PledgeMusic to fund its upcoming 15th record, which it’s already in the studio recording. Though the legendary thrash group has sold about 50 million albums and gone platinum six times, it’s still seeking fan support, though whether that means the group can’t find a label or just doesn’t want one isn’t really clear.

Campaign supporters can pre-order the record via the campaign, as usual, but fans who kick in enough bucks can also earn signed copies of both Dave Mustaine and David Ellefson’s books, a guitar lesson with Mustaine, a disposable camera with pictures from the recording, or a day in the studio with the whole group.
