Anthrax’s new album, Worship Music, is tentatively due out on September 13 in the U.S. and September 12 in Europe. The metal titans will put out the record on Megaforce Records in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Records overseas.
The album has been in the works for more than a couple years. Originally, the band worked with singer Dan Nelson, but those tracks were scrapped when Joey Belladonna returned to the group. As it happens, Worship Music will be the first Anthrax album to feature Belladonna on vocals in two decades.
“Some of the songs we tweaked, some of the songs we did more than tweak,” Anthrax’s drummer Charlie Benante said to Revolver magazine. “Some we started from scratch, and some were written just for this album.”
