He could also be knee deep within the extremely anticipated Pantera tour, however that hasn’t stopped drum-lord Charlie Benante from concentrating on his mothership, Anthrax.
In an interview with Steel Injection, Benante confirmed Anthrax has compiled roughly a dozen songs, with the group setting to work on new materials again in October.
“So as far as the new material goes, in October we all met up again and worked on material again,” Benante shared. “We have now, I wish to say, possibly 11 songs now. And out of these 11, I actually really feel like six or seven of them are actually, actually sturdy. I wish to have a couple of extra. I’ve some concepts for another songs that I believe would put the document excessive. I might prefer to see that occur.
“You know, Scott‘s been working on lyrics, I know. And then I’ll see Scott in South America because Mr. Bungle is on a bunch of shows, too, with [Pantera]. So we’ll kind of get together and hang and talk about that. In a perfect world, I would hope that I have two months, three months maybe off before the Pantera stuff happens in the spring, and I could go and maybe lay down drum tracks and stuff and just get that thing going. So that’s what I’m hoping to do.”
Anthrax final launched an album in 2016 with For All Kings, with members of the band embarking on a number of totally different tasks throughout that point, on-top of a grueling touring schedule for the thrash legends.
In between Pantera tour dates all through the tip of this yr and the majority of 2023, Charlie and Anthrax hit the highway with Black Label Society and Exodus starting this January.
