Megadeth bassist David Ellefson is sharing video of the unboxing of his new autobiography, “My Life With Deth”, which will be published on Tuesday.

The memoir chronicles the story of Ellefson’s fall into addiction during the band’s early years, followed by his subsequent recovery and the return to faith which championed the band’s rise to fame over the past several decades.

“My Life With Deth” was written with Joel McIver, and features a foreword by Alice Cooper; it also includes contributions from Kerry King (Slayer), Scott Ian (Anthax), Ellefson’s current bandmate in Megadeth, Shawn Drover, as well as former colleagues Chris Poland and Marty Friedman.

Ellefson will launch the project with a series of book signings.

Megadeth just completed a month-long Latin American tour with Black Sabbath.

The group will now play two concerts in the southwestern US this week before launching a full Super Collider US tour on November 23 in St. Paul, MN.
