Altitudes & Attitude (Megadeth/Anthrax) Premiere New Single “Out Here”

Altitudes & Attitude have a new record called “Get It Out” in the works for a January 18th release via Megaforce. The band’s core consists of Megadeth‘s David Ellefson and Anthrax‘s Frank Bello and the first single from the outing has been launched in the form of the below lyric video for the song “Out Here“. Guitarist Jon Donais (Anthrax, Shadows Fall) guests on this song.

Comments Bello of this current single:

“I’ve learned that writing songs is very cathartic. A lot of these lyrics are about the inner struggles of my life, and about the rage that has built up from my life experiences — my brother’s murder; my father abandoning my family when we were young, leaving us with no funds to pay the bills … the ups and downs of life in general. I’ve always had an anger inside that music really helps me deal with.”

Other guests involved with the effort include drummer Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle), Ace Frehley, Gus G. of Firewind, Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper), Christian Martucci (Stone Sour) and Satchel (Steel Panther).

Anthrax To Play Final Metal Show At Sunset Strip House Of Blues

The six-time Grammy nominated Anthrax will provide a head banging send-off for the iconic Sunset Strip House of Blues on Wednesday, July 29th.

The band will headline what will be the last metal show ever to play the HOB before it shuts down on August 7th to make way for a new hotel/housing/retail complex. Tickets go on sale today through Ticketmaster, the Live Nation app, and at the HOB Box Office. Log on to this location for more details.

“Every show we’ve done at the Sunset House of Blues has been a party,” said Anthrax’s Frank Bello. “Everyone who we’re friends with who’s not on tour shows up, either to jam or drink or just hang out. And I’ll really miss that. Sunset Boulevard has lost its last great place to play.”

Charlie Benante added, “The memories that have been created will always live on for anyone who went to the HOB. I feel honored and privileged to have this last chance to blow the roof off of the HOB. The Strip will soon end up looking like a corporate strip mall, no memories there.”

While the band is still putting together ideas for the show, there will likely be some cool surprises. “You never know what we’ll come up with,” laughed Bello.

Anthrax – Joey Belladonna, Scott Ian, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, and Jon Donais – is currently in the final stages of recording a new album that is expected out in early 2016.

If you missed it, be sure to catch Scott Ian discussing what house in Game of Thrones he’d want to belong to here, and you can find details on the band’s newly released bourbon at this location.

Anthrax Drummer Charlie Benate Takes Ice Bucket Challenge

On August 18th, when Anthrax headlined the Rock Al Parquet 2014 Festival in Bogota, Colombia, the band’s drummer Charlie Benate took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge – in front of more than 140,000 screaming fans. Footage can be seen below.

Mike Portnoy had challenged Charlie, and he accepted, in large part because Mike Wright, the father of his friend Brandon Wright, has had ALS for 10 years – so this was personal.

Bandmates Joey Belladonna and Frank Bello did the dousing, and afterwards Charlie nominated Philip H. Anselmo, Sepultura’s Andreas Kisser and music producer Jay Ruston, who produced Anthrax’s “Worship Music.” Anthrax’s live DVD, “Chile On Hell,” will be released on September 16th.
