Anthrax to begin recording new LP in two weeks

In a new interview with Robert Cavuoto of Metal Rules, Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante was asked if his packed 2023 touring schedule with Pantera will delay the release of Anthrax‘s long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s “For All Kings” album. He said: “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.

Answering why it has taken so long for the New York-born band to complete the writing process for a new LP, Benante commented: “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.”
