Anthrax To Begin Recording New Album This Month


East Coast thrash legends Anthrax are ready to begin laying down their twelfth studio album. The group are scheduled to enter the studio this month to begin tracking what will arrive as the follow-up to 2016’s “For All Kings“.

The band’s drummer Charlie Benante recently confirmed the news to Metal Rules, stating of their plans:

“We’re actually going in two weeks to start recording the record. But it probably wouldn’t come out till ’24 anyway. But the good part about it is we are going in to start recording it. So that’s awesome.”

Speaking on the lengthy wait in-between albums, Benante offered:

“If we didn’t get hit with this whole global pandemic thing, it would have been out probably two years ago, three years ago. But we all know what happened. But now, being that some of the songs were [written] before the pandemic hit, they’re old to me. So now there’s a bunch of new songs that kind of came in the mix. So that’s a good thing. You can never have enough… We’re still working on the older ones because we really like a lot of those.”
