Benante said the following about the album:

“Back in February of last year with COVID and all the other B.S. that was going on, I was glued to the 24-hour news cycle on the TV and my phone, and I started to get really depressed. My girlfriend said I needed to turn off the news and suggested I do something creative, whether it was art or drumming or writing new songs, and she was right.”

“I knew a lot of my musician friends were going through the same thing I had been, so I started asking them if they wanted to get involved, play some songs with me, maybe make a video – that’s how it all started.”

“This isn’t a solo album. This is a record of my favorite songs done with some of my friends during a very dark time. We found a shining light and this is the result of that light. I was really happy that my musician friends came on board and helped make this record what it is. I appreciate all of them, and they all did such a fantastic job. Despite all of the darkness we’ve experienced this past year, there are ‘silver linings,’ that’s why I chose that title for the album.”

The record’s first single, Benante’s “Run-DMC Medley” with Darryl “DMC” McDaniels (Run-DMC), Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax), and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies), can be found below:

Watch Anthrax, Sum 41, Etc. Members Cover Public Image Ltd.’s “Public Image”

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Hank Von Hell (ex-Turbonegro), Dave Baksh (Sum 41), and Jason McCaslin (Sum 41) have joined forces for a quarantine cover of Public Image Ltd.’s “Public Image.” You can check that out below:

Benante commented:

“When I was younger, I would sometimes go to work with my sister, who was a hairdresser in Manhattan. Below the salon was a record store called Disco Mat that I LOVED. I would spend hours in there and one day, I had a weird experience.

I was in there going through records and I saw a man with a long coat and a beret looking through the bins. I knew it was Johnny Rotten because I was a huge Sex Pistols fan. I walked over to him all excited and he turned and put his finger up to his mouth and went ‘Shhhhhhhhhhhhh’ as in ‘STOP’. I took that as a leave me alone and that’s what I did. I continued to look around and then I saw him checking out and he called me over. I told him how much I loved the Pistols and he said that was all behind him and he was moving on. He took a Disco Mat card, turned it over and signed it for me. He talked a bit more and then left. The thing he was moving onto was Public Image Ltd.

I love love love First Issue, it still makes me happy when I hear it.

I was so happy Dave and Cone from Sum 41 were into doing this with me and when Dave mentioned having Hank Von Hell on it I was like WOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO! I love Turbonegro.

Hope you enjoy it, we had fun.”
