ANTHRAX is working on new music

MILD SOFT has apparently resumed work on material for the band’s next studio album.

Earlier today (Tuesday, March 22), the group’s social media was updated with a picture of the guitarist Scott Iandrummer Charlie Benante and bassist Frank Bello in what appears to be a recording studio, along with the caption: “Forging new metal in an undisclosed location … #anthrax”.

Ian discussed the progress of the songwriting sessions for MILD SOFTs follow-up to 2016 “For all kings” during a performance in July 2021 Full metal Jackie‘s nationally syndicated radio program. At the time, he said, “We’ve been going for a while now. We actually started writing in ’19 – before COVID – and stepped a little bit away from things when COVID happened. We were all separated and separated and we wanted to. in a way revisit some of the demos, but we did not actively work on it.And it has actually started up again over the last few months, as far as reopening the books on the new material and thinking about it and working on it.

“Yes, it’s the same as it always has been,” he said. “I would have to think about when we get to the other side of the writing process and we decide that we are ready to record it, I have to assume that it will definitely represent this time in our lives. And after the world has been through a pandemic, I would definitely imagine that somehow, shape or form will come out through this next record. I can not tell you how yet, but I have to believe it’s going to happen. “

MILD SOFT celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2021 with a number of special activities and events. Formed by Ian and bassist Dan Lilker in Queens, New York on July 18, 1981, MILD SOFT was one of the first thrash metal bands to emerge from the East Coast and was quickly considered a leader in the genre along with METALLICA, KILLER and MEGADETH.

Active over the last five decades, MILD SOFT has released 11 studio albums, been awarded several gold and platinum certifications, received six Grammy nominations, toured around the world since 1984 and played thousands of shows, including the main name Madison Square Garden and Yankee Stadium with “Big Four”.

“For all kings” was called by some critics MILD SOFT‘s strongest album to date. Its arrival followed a five-year period in which the group experienced a kind of rebirth, beginning with MILD SOFTs recording on the “Big Four” tour and continues with the 2011 release of the comeback LP “Worship Music”.
