In May 2006 Megadeth announced their eleventh studio album, entitled United Abominations, was near completion. Originally scheduled for release by Roadrunner Records in October 2006, Mustaine announced in August 2006 that the band were “putting the finishing touches on it,” and it was rescheduled for release on May 15, 2007. United Abominations is the band’s first studio release to feature members Glen Drover, Shawn Drover, and James Lomenzo. In March 2007 Dave Mustaine announced at the Megadeth forums that a new version of A Tout Le Monde would be released on the album. It features a duet with Cristina Scabbia of the band Lacuna Coil, and was to be the first single from the album until it was replaced by “Washington Is Next!”.

On 12 March 2007 Megadeth announced plans to play at Donington’s Download Festival. Kerrang subsequently gave the performance a 5/5 K rating in the 13th June issue.

United Abominations was released on May 15, 2007. It debuted a week later at #8 in the US, the band’s highest charting position since 1994’s Youthanasia, and sold 54,000 copies in it’s first week.
