Charlie Benante says that Anthrax plans to resume work on their new album after the Covid-19 pandemic lockdowns forced the heavy metal band to put the project on hold.

"We are going to start working on it again. Before Covid hit we had about seven-eight songs that were killer and we are going to continue to work on those and more," the Anthrax drummer told The Metal Voice, referring to the follow-up to 2016's For All Kings.

"We didn't want to put a record out at this time because we thought it would get stuck in that Covid vacuum," he added. "So we wanted to wait and so at least we could go out and play these songs."

While he sees the possibility of live concerts restarting in the near future as the situation returns to normalcy, Benante said, "I don't think it's gonna be the normal that we once had. I think there's still gonna be a couple of little guidelines that we're gonna have to follow".

He also stressed the importance of taking care of each other. Benante made his stand clear by saying, "In America, things have gotten really ugly, and I want it to get back to a place where you are nice to your fellow neighbor and you're not an asshole to people."
