Band Nearing Finish Line with the Recording of the New Album

In the final stages of recording the follow-up to 2011's Worship Music, ANTHRAX - Joey Belladonna/vocals, Frank Bello/bass, Charlie Benante/drums, guitarist Jon Donais and Scott Ian/rhythm guitar - will hit the road beginning August 28 for a 42-city global trek that will see the band playing three major festivals as well as sharing stages with the likes of MOTORHEAD and their fellow Big Four comrades, SLAYER.

ANTHRAX's Bello, Benante and Ian started the new album writing process back in late 2013 when they began exchanging suggested riffs and other ideas for the new songs. With producer and "sixth member of the band" Jay Ruston, formal writing sessions started last Fall, culminating with about 20 original songs, almost twice as many as the band had ever brought to the recording studio in the past.

According to Benante, "Worship Music started a new chapter in our career, and it has served as an inspiration for this new album. Worship was made up of a lot of different types of songs, some thrashy, some very mid-90s ANTHRAX-sounding, but this new one is really thrashy."

Said Bello, "The thing about ANTHRAX...we have this heavy, thrashy music and Joey's powerful and melodic vocals. I love heavy music, but I also love melody, so the challenge is to blend them together so they sound like ANTHRAX, and I think we've done a really good job of that on this new record."

The Grammy-nominated Worship Music featured the return of "classic era" vocalist Belladonna, and was named one of the best albums of 2011 in numerous media outlets including SPIN, Metal Hammer, Guitar World, and Loudwire, and provided the band with the rock'n'roll comeback story of the year, all adding up to the excitement and anticipation for this new album.
