Altitudes & Attitude, the band featuring Megadeth‘s David Ellefson and Anthrax‘s Frank Bello, have shared a new song titled “Part Of Me.“ This track features Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper, etc.) and it will appear on the band’s new album “Get It Out,” which is set to be released on January 18.
“The heavier stuff is usually the stuff that I bring in, which I think gives the album nice color… It was originally a guitar idea that I had, but then we had an eight-string bass in the studio, and I plugged it into a Kemper [amp], and I started writing a lot of bits and parts for ‘Part Of Me’… Frank helped me finish up the lyric idea… and it became that song.”
“David came up with a great musical piece for ‘Part Of Me’… The lyrics [are about] being in a place where you want to express yourself, whatever that may be in your life. If you always wanted to do something, don’t be held down by anything … I certainly have an inner anger, a part of me that I don’t want to let out, but if you keep pushing me, it’s going to come out … I think everybody’s got that in them, but they try to keep it in, until they’re pushed to the point where they can’t help but get it out.”
