Anthrax’s Scott Ian speaks of recording sessions for their new album: “going great”

Author Flavia Andrade - 23.5.2023

In a recent interview with Wall Of SoundAnthrax‘s Scott Ian spoke of the recording sessions for their new album.

In Ian’s words:

It’s going great. We’ve gotten nine songs so far. Charlie [Benante] recorded drums on nine songs, I’ve got guitars almost done on four. Then I came out on these Bungle dates. But Frankie [Bello] and I are going to head back into the studio, like, first week of June to finish all the guitars and bass, work on some vocal ideas. Then probably vocals and lead guitars will start not long after that. Then there’ll be another drum session somewhere down the line, probably because there are more ideas that we just haven’t really had a chance to get tightly arranged yet. So there’ll be another drum session in the next few months.

When asked about a release date for the band’s next album, Ian said:

I’m not gonna put any deadline or date on anything, but I’d like to think a record would be done by the end of the year. Then we’d be out starting again next summer, you know, probably. That’s a very loose, loose schedule, in my mind.
