Anthrax: 'New Record is the Ultimate Thing to Do'
Frontman Joey Belladonna of Big Four thrashers Anthrax confirmed that the five-piece is warming up to fully focus on new album work. During a Nuclear Blast chat, the singer was asked to comment on future Anthrax plans. "A new album would be nice," he replied. "There are some music parts and pieces that people have. We're finishing up this run, this will be our last tour this year except for one more Maiden show in California in September." Belladonna continued, "New record, again, would be the ultimate thing to do. Hopefully we'll have time to put something together before the end of the year so we get a little buzz going, throw some ideas to people and get together as a band. [To] make a great record again would - that would ultimately be the best thing for us." Anthrax recently announced Jon Donais of Shadows Fall as their new full-time guitarist and a permanent replacement for Rob Caggiano who quit the band earlier this year. Back in April, bassist Frank Bello commented that the group is anxious to get some writing under way. "You can see that we're getting the itch to write new music. Guys are starting get ideas recorded, which is how it all starts," Bello said during a Metal Titans interview. The group's latest studio effort, "Worship Music," saw its release in September 2011 via Megaforce Records, scoring a No. 12 debut on the Billboard 200 chart with 28,000 units shipped in the US within the first week.
