Anthrax Drop Singer, Reunite With John Bush For At Least One Gig

(Blabbermouth) Who didn't see this one coming? At least Anthrax ends up with a great singer.... for one show. Who knows what that could lead to? Blabbermouth has the story: Anthrax's manager, Izvor Zivkovic of Split Media, has released the following statement to Blabbermouth.Net: "As announced last week, thrash legends Anthrax regretfully cancelled the first three dates on the second leg of their European tour due to new vocalist Dan Nelson's unexpected illness. An additional seven European dates are also cancelled, those scheduled from July 22 to July 30.

"Anthrax is thrilled to announce that they will play the August 1 Sonisphere festival in Knebworth, England, with their good friend John Bush [Anthrax's singer from 1992 to 2005] joining them for a very special one-off performance. The members of Anthrax have confirmed the departure of vocalist Dan Nelson. In light of this development, Anthrax's slot on the U.S. SLIPKNOT dates set for August and September, has also been cancelled. ANTHRAX is already actively considering lead singer candidates, and looks forward to hitting the road before the end of the year."

***UPDATE: According to Anthrax's management, the band's new album, "Worship Music", which was previously due in Europe on October 23 via Nuclear Blast Records, will now be "pushed back to a later date." - Dan sent Blabbermouth a statement claiming the band let him go, read it here
