Anthrax’s Frank Bello Begins Writing His Memoir

Anthrax bassist Frank Bello has revealed that he has started writing his memoir with Joel McIver, the author who previously worked on Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s “My Life With Deth” and more. Bello told RockSverige the following:

“We started and we’re going to get back to it because we have busy schedules. We started it and I plan to write it with Joel. He’s done great stuff and he knows my history probably better than me. He’s great at what he does, so we’ll probably work that out. He goes deep and he does it right. That’s what I like about Joel. He has a lot of history that I probably have forgotten.”

Altitudes & Attitude (Megadeth, Anthrax) Premiere New Song “Part Of Me”

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.

Ellefson commented:

“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.”

Bello added:

“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.”

Frank Bello On Next Anthrax Album: “It’s Gonna Be Intense”

During an interview with The Metal Voice, Frank Bello talked a bit about Anthrax’s new album plans. According to him, the effort is “gonna be intense.”

Bello said the following:

“Everybody has their own collection of stuff. And Scott [Ian, guitar], Charlie [Benante, drums] and I will get together in two and a half weeks and we will start putting songs together. At NAMM [show] week [in late January], that’s what I’ll be doing. I fly in [to Los Angeles] on that Tuesday. Believe me, it’s a big schedule there, because I go back and forth to NAMM also, so it’s pretty crazy. But during the day, I’ll be writing with ANTHRAX, and at nighttime, it’s ALTITUDES & ATTITUDE [Bello’s project with MEGADETH’s David Ellefson] stuff.”

He also added:

“ANTHRAX is in a really good place. And I call this good for a record, because it’s an angry place. You just feel it. And I’m very excited to see what we come up with, ’cause I don’t know yet. We’re just gonna bounce off of each other. I know what I have, and I’m sure everybody’s gonna bring it. But I know it’s an angry sense, which I like. It’s gonna be intense, I’ll put it that way.”
