Anthrax Announce New Guitar Player
After filling in on the position of guitarist for over six months, Jon Donais of Shadows Fall was now announced by Scott Ian as a permanent Anthrax axeman. While chatting with Team Rock, Ian stated he considers the matter pretty much closed, noting that Donais passed all the tests. "Jon's been with us since February, and I think I can safely say he's passed the audition," the axeman said. "I know we haven't said anything official yet, but in my mind, he's the guy. I'm sure some type of official announcement - because in this world, people apparently need that kind of information so they can sleep well at night. But as far as I'm concerned, Jon is the guitar player in Anthrax." Donais previoulsy revealed that he was asked by the band's former guitarist Rob Caggiano about filling in after his Anthrax departure. "Initially, Rob called and told me he was leaving the band, and asked if I'd be interested in filling in," he said. "Then Scott called me and everything fell into place." Anthrax released their latest studio effort "Worship Music" in September 2011 via Megaforce Records, climbing No. 12 spot on the Billboard 200 chart with 28,000 units shipped in the US within the first week.
