Anthrax Stream New Song 'Breathing Lightning'

(hennemusic) Anthrax have released a lyric video for "Breathing Lightning", a track from their forthcoming record "For All Kings." Due February 26, "For All Kings" marks the debut of former Shadows Fall lead guitarist Jon Donais, who replaced Rob Caggiano following his departure in 2013.

"I was a little apprehensive about showing the band this song, because it wasn't like the other songs that we were writing," drummer Charlie Benante tells Yahoo! Music. "I was going for more of a really good riffing song and then the chorus was very melodic. It reminded me of Zeppelin."

Bassist Frank Bello contributed the melody for the song's chorus, which inspired guitarist Scott Ian. "Frank had this 'Do the right thing' line that he had inserted in there while he was singing mumbo-jumbo parts for the melody," explains Ian. "It stuck in my head, and the whole thing coalesced into this idea of getting to a point in your life where you're committing to what you want to do in life even if it's the hardest path you're ever going to take.

"It all comes from me, because when I made the commitment to be in this band, I certainly wasn't taking the easy path. So 'Breathing Lightning' is about pushing forward and not letting anything stand in your way." Check out the song here.
