Anthrax Hope To Finish New Album In June

(Classic Rock) Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian says the band will put the finishing touches to their next album in June. They will take some time away from the studio to go out on tour later this month, before getting back to work on what will be the follow-up to 2011's Worship Music.

Ian tells The Metal Voice (via Blabbermouth)"It's coming along great. We're gonna take a break. We head out on tour on [April 24], we'll take a break and be able to get away from it, live with it for awhile, and then come back right at the beginning of June and spend another month finishing it up.

The guitarist adds, "We're in a really good zone creatively, and I think if you liked the last record [2011's 'Worship Music'], you're really gonna love this new one."

Ian also recalls hearing Metallica's early demo in 1982 and how it set the tone for the heavy metal scene from then on. Megaforce Records owner Jonny Zazula believed in the genre and went to great lengths to release Metallica's music. Read more and watch the full interview here.
