Megadeth bassist David Ellefson has announced the release of Unsung, his new book of original lyrics and never-before-published images. Unsung is available now for purchase through in a deluxe hardcover 'Gift' edition, a softcover high gloss version, and an instant downloadable version through the iBooks app for iPad and iPhone.

Unsung captures the latest chapter in the life of one of metal's most iconic and influential artists, as he explores a new medium for his lyrical creativity. The book is also David's first venture into the realm of self-publishing and as a result, he encourages the reader to utilize his new and original lyrics under license from him for their own songs. In this manner, songwriters of all levels can actually become co-writers with David.

As bassist for Megadeth, David has been a regular contributor to one of metal music's most enduring legacies. Followers of his work will be delighted that Unsung proves to be yet another unique narrative from a man who is known for creating fresh and innovative ways to inspire and connect with his fans.
