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).
