Anthrax Are Working On A New Album

Who's working on new music in lockdown? Everyone, obviously, but most recently: Anthrax. Guitarist Scott Ian revealed in an interview with radio station SYFYwire that the New York thrash giants have been using their time wisely to work on the follow-up to 2016's For All Kings, which had been on the cards prior to the COVID outbreak.

“We had already started working on stuff with the intent of finishing it up in the spring of this year, and then maybe getting in the studio and either having a record out later this year or early 2021. But obviously all those plans have now changed."

Instead, they've been doing things in a very 2020 way.

“We've still been working on stuff through the magic of the internet. We can do a lot over Zoom and FaceTime, sending music back and forth through email," he reveals. "We need to really get in the room and work on the arrangements and really play something 30 times until you really understand it and feel like, ‘OK, this is what this arrangement needs to be. But that’s the holdup at this point. But we certainly have a lot of material, which makes me very excited about when we can actually get in a room together."
