Anthrax recently contributed Sorror Irrumator to the Game of Thrones Mix Tape II along side metal giants Mastodon. “We obviously felt strong enough to release this is our first song since Worship Music” Ian hints “This is just the tip of the ice berg” suggesting the fans can expect more to come on their 11th studio album. Shadows Fall guitarist Jonathan Donias replaced Robert Caggiano in 2013 who went on to join Volbeat and Anthrax had begun recording lead guitars in studio.
The band will tour the US and Canada soon with plans to return to Australia in 2016.
Scott Ian has debuted his monster rock n roll band MOTOR SISTER‘s “Ride” on the Billboard charts after its first week of release. The album cracked the top 10 with the #9 position on the Billboard New Artist (Heatseekers) chart. Additional chart numbers have been listed below!

MOTOR SISTER is a group of musicians whose collective musical pedigrees speak for themselves. Mother Superior founder, guitarist, and vocalist Jim Wilson fronts the band, with Anthrax’s Scott Ian on guitar, Pearl Aday on backing vocals, Joey Vera on bass, and John Tempesta on drums.
“This music was born out of the love of Mother Superior songs and rock and roll, and the time is right to show case what this music is all about”
