Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante was interviewed by Everblack podcast from Australia, and shared some details about their upcoming album.
He has shared that what we can expect from new Anthrax album. Here’s the statement:
“There’s a collection of songs so far that are very, very, I would say, a little more in the aggressive style. There’s gonna be a lot more coming, but as of right now, I think we’re off to a really good start.”
On lyrical consept of new album, he said:
“We did have a song about zombies on ‘Worship Music’ and then ‘For All Kings’… The last three records that we did, I’m trying to tell a story, especially with the album covers and stuff like that.
But it’s not a concept or anything like that. It’s just a collection of songs at where we were at that moment. Which is exactly what the next one is gonna be — just a collection of songs that reflect where we’ve been.”

Back in October 2018, Charlie Benante spoke in an interview with Heavy magazine, and talked about next album. He said:
“There’s been a lot of good ideas, but nothing has been recorded yet. I mean, I’ve done demos — I just have my demos — but next year is when it’s probably all gonna start to take shape.
I know this next record is definitely gonna be a little more extreme, a little more angry in places, because I just think that’s where I am at this point in the world.
Right now I’m very angry with a couple of things that have happened; I’m also very happy. So I think it’s gonna be a really good blend of anger and happy.“
