ANTHRAX recently spent time in the studio recording several cover versions of some of their favorite rock classics, to be included with the upcoming re-release of the band’s latest album, “Worship Music”.
In addition to RUSH (“Anthem”) and BOSTON (“Smokin'”) covers, ANTHRAX is also recording its versions of AC/DC‘s “T.N.T.”, JOURNEY‘s “Keep On Runnin'” and BLACK SABBATH‘s “Neon Knights”. The latter song is expected to appear on the upcoming Ronnie James Dio tribute album which is being assembled by the singer’s widow and longtime manager Wendy Dio.
In an October 15 tweet, ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian revealed that he spent the day tracking three songs for the “Worship Music” reissue.
A release date for the effort has not yet been announced.
“Worship Music” has sold more than 100,000 copies in the U.S. since its September 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
