Anthrax To Be Rejoined By Dan Lilker During Spring Tour


Dan Lilker is set to return to the stage with his former bandmates in Anthrax this spring. He’ll be taking up his former post in light of the band’s bassist/vocalist Frank Bello opting to sit out the shows “due to personal reasons.” Those concerts will mark Lilker‘s first with the legendary East Coast thrash metal band in 40 years.

He commented:

“I’m really looking forward to jamming with Anthrax again. When we parted ways back in 1984, they told me to stick around because they might need me in 40 years.”

The band stated:

“We’re all very excited about with playing with Danny again, and we really appreciate his filling in for Frank. It’s been way too long since we played South America, so you don’t want to miss these shows, they’re going to be insane.”

Bello himself stated:

“Hey Everybody,

I wanted to let all my friends know that I’m sorry that I won’t be coming to play the upcoming Anthrax dates in Mexico, South America, or the couple of U.S. festival dates in May. Everything’s OK, but for personal reasons, I won’t be able to make those shows. I want to thank my friend Danny Lilker for stepping in for me- he’s gonna rock it! Enjoy the shows , I’m sure they will be great , and I’ll look forward to seeing you all soon!! — Frank”
