Members Of Anthrax, Every Time I Die And Fall Out Boy Unite In The Damned Things

An article on “Rock Sound” that has since been pulled revealed that Every Time I Die‘s Keith Buckley, Anthrax‘s Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano and Fall Out Boy‘s Andy Hurley and Joe Trohman have teamed up in a new metal side project dubbed The Damned Things.

Scott Ian had the following to say about the band:

“We just started working on songs together and I really dug it. It just felt really good. From there we decided that obviously both of us are pretty busy in our day jobs but let’s see what we can do with this. Even if it takes us five years to make a record, why not?

It’s super fun and it’s something that we do totally take seriously because we love the music we’ve created. People think of Fall Out Boy and they think of Pete Wentz and Patrick. These two guys, man, they’re fucking hardcore dudes.

Joe writes some amazing riffs. We have this song called ‘A Great Reckoning’ that I swear to God, this song could be on any Thin Lizzy record. He fucking blew my mind with this song and I just can’t wait for people to hear it.”

Meanwhile, Joe Trohman had the following to offer:

“Scott’s right hand is the reason I got into playing punk rock, hardcore and metal! Having Keith as part of the mix is insane, we all know he writes incredible lyrics but he is also a really good singer. That is showcased in Every Time I Die, but we want him to go more into singing than screaming on this project.”

    Sounded good till I read the words ‘Fall Out Boy’.

    That said I know they’re pretty respected for their pre-FOB output, so maybe I’m being a bit harsh.

    Anything that gets compared to Thin Lizzy is ok in my book. Considering how well Anthrax nailed Cowboy Song, I think Ian knows what he’s doing in the comparison.

    to me, the two other guys in Fall Out Boy are like the two other guys in Cheap Trick. Patrick and Pete are the pretty boys, and Joe and Andy are the guys who are always in the background. They seem like they should be in a band that doesn’t sound like FOB.

    Apparently only half of Fall Out Boy are pussies….if Scott Ian and Keith Buckley give the OK so do I. Should be pretty interesting!
