Just saw on the band's website. Scott, along with Ted Nugent, Sebastian Bach, Jason Bonham and Evan Seinfeld (of Biohazard), have been locked in a house for 10 days to write and record new music. It'll air on VH1 later this year sometime. Check out the News section on the band's site for more info.
Just saw Anthrax play with Judas Priest on Sunday. Un-freakin'-believable. Tight as hell, lots of energy.
If you get a chance to see this show -- do. It's awesome. Joey and Rob Halford both back and both singing better than ever. Plus, Scott Ian was lookin' drrrrrreamy. Anthrax played mostly Joey-era classics (which tickled the hell out of me), and Priest played a lot of old stuff, with a fair chunk of the new album, which sounds more like the old stuff and less like the keyboard-infested "we're trying to be Queensryche" phase.
Just recently purchased my ticket for the Judas Priest/Anthrax show here in Cincy at the Riverbend amphitheater. I am one happy camper, that's for sure. I even sprung for pavillion seating (as opposed to lawn). Cannot freakin' WAIT!
Ever since dates started to be announced for this "Among the Living" line up I have been waiting to read an official statement from the band about John Bush. I have patiently waited for the new website to go live, thinking that Scott is sure to make a statement as he is usually so open with the fans... the site is up but I am still none the wiser.
Of course it will be cool to see Anthrax with Joey (I am too young to have seen that before - just), but I love John Bush, he is so much a part of Anthrax now. Surely they have not sacked him???? I had hoped this was just a temporary thing, a novelty, but I am starting to wonder.
Does anyone have any official information about what is going on?
OFFICIALLY - The Triumphant REUNION, The Original Line-up of Legendary Speed Metal Icons!!!
New York's own ANTHRAX has an unmistakable signature style and distinct sound that breaks musical, cultural and political boundaries - influencing a myriad of bands throughout the spectrum of musical genres for 20 years.
Twice GRAMMY-nominated, MTV/VMA nominees and Multi-Platinum and Gold Awarded music veterans, ANTHRAX has sold over 10,000,000 records worldwide, including nine studio albums, two live albums, three greatest hits, plus two DVDs. Touring pros ANTHRAX performed on over fifty tours spanning the globe - in thirty-two countries on five continents including Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Asia.
Now, for the first time in 13 years, the entire original lineup of Joey Belladonna, Frankie Bello, Charlie Benante, Scott Ian and Danny Spitz will gather together in one room to discuss new music releases, as well as the future plans for this monumental ANTHRAX reunion.
Please join us for the biggest event in heavy music - the ANTHRAX Global Press Conference and Luncheon. This history-making music event will take place on April 1, 2005 at 2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT at SIRIUS Satellite Radio's national broadcast center in New York City, and will be broadcast live on Hard Attack/27, SIRIUS' extreme heavy metal channel.
Refreshments and light fare will be served. A telephone line (866-510-5377) will be set up for off-site journalists to call in questions to directly ask the band - live on SIRIUS! Photos will be accommodated. To attend in person, press must RSVP by 5 pm ET on March 31, and a photo ID will be required to enter the building.
The event will officially kick off the weekend music special "SPREADING THE ANTHRAX" on Hard Attack/27, where millions will hear it first.
At the conclusion of the ANTHRAX Global Press Conference and Luncheon, ANTHRAX will make an important statement regarding the U.S. Government and the Anthrax Vaccine. ANTHRAX has teamed up with Slave to the Metal Foundation (www.slavetothemetal.org) to bring public awareness to the dangers of the Anthrax Vaccine. The newly legislated "BioShield Act" (July, 2004) allows the Department of Health and Human Services to inject American Citizens with Anthrax Vaccines and other untested and unapproved substances without informed consent, using our military as first line guinea pigs. Experts will be at the conference to discuss this with attendees.
