Joey Belladonna, the 63-year-old iconic vocalist of Anthrax, took to social media to announce his return to Los Angeles, where he’s currently “putting down vocal tracks for the new Anthrax album.”

The esteemed singer, who rejoined Anthrax in 2010, is collaborating once again with producer Jay Ruston. Ruston, who first worked with the band on 2011’s “Worship Music,” has been an integral part of Anthrax‘s sound, also producing their 2016 album “For All Kings.”

Just over a month ago, Anthrax bassist Frank Bello provided an update on the recording process, revealing that the band had completed drums, bass, and guitar tracking. Belladonna is now adding his vocals to the mix, with Jon Donais, Anthrax‘s guitarist, also contributing his parts.

Bello expressed confidence in the band’s progress, emphasizing that while there has been a considerable gap since their last album release, they are focused on delivering a high-quality record. He highlighted the complexity and heaviness of the new material, indicating a deliberate effort to push their musical boundaries.

Anticipation is building among Anthrax fans as the band works diligently to craft their next musical offering.
