scott on singer situation - 2005-09-27

2005-09-27 - ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has commented on an article in the latest issue of Revolver magazine in which vocalist John Bush appears to distance himself from the possibility of ever returning to the band following the group's decision to reunite with their previous singer, Joey Belladonna.

<br>
But the situation seems not be that dramatic. <br>

In the article, which appears in the November 2005 issue of the magazine, Bush confirms that the original idea for the band's current reunion trek was to bring both Belladonna and Bush on tour, as ANTHRAX had planned in 2000, but Bush claims that he wasn't interested. "At one time, I had been willing to tour with Joey, but now everything is different," Bush says. "It just wasn't in my heart. I figured I had been in this band 12 and a half years, and we felt positive about what we had done, and we all thought our last album, 'We've Come for You All', was the best record we'd made together. So I just wanted to move forward and do another album."

Regarding the possibility of the band recording another album with him at the microphone once the reunion tour is over, Bush tells Revolver, "The idea of this reunion tour was to generate a bunch of enthusiasm for the band. But if they get people excited, they're going to want a new record, so they're going to follow up with a new album with Joey. So for me, I look at it as it's over. The last thing I want to do is say, 'Hey, I'll be here if you want me.'"

In a posting at the band's official web site, Ian had the following to say regarding Bush's comments:

"Nothing has changed because of an interview that we all participated in four months ago. What it doesn't say is that without this reunion tour, the band is over. No new record, nothing. It would've been impossible for us to continue as ANTHRAX. This tour is a bridge to the future of this band. Don't bother speculating on it. It's all going to come down to the music. We'll start writing and see where it takes us just like we've always done."

In a later posting, Ian elaborates further on his statement, saying, "The comment about not being able to continue relates to us not flushing another two years of our lives down the toilet. That's all I can say." <br>
