Anthrax is "getting there" with next album, says Scott Ian: "We're not that far off!"

Scott Ian has shared an update on the status of the next Anthrax album, telling Metal Hammer that the thrash icons are "getting there."

"We had started writing before COVID, but then eventually we jumped back in, so we do have eight arrangements and half of them with lyrics," Ian says. "We've got at least another six really, really great things that we just need to start bashing out as a band."

The guitarist adds, "We're not that far off!"

Anthrax's most recent studio effort is 2016's For All Kings. Over the summer, they released a live album titled XL, which captured their 2021 40th anniversary streaming concert.

The 40th anniversary celebration continued this year with a U.S. Anthrax tour also featuring Black Label Society and Hatebreed.
