Guitarist ROB CAGGIANO Talks About JOHN BUSH's Return To ANTHRAX

I Heart Guitar blog recently conducted an interview with ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below.

I Heart Guitar: I guess the big question people want to know the answer for is, is John Bush singing at [the upcoming Soundwave Festival in Australia]?

Rob Caggiano: Yes, he is!

I Heart Guitar: Cool! I feel like a jerk asking this question because you've probably heard it a million times lately, but is he coming back on board for good, or is this an extended one-off?

Caggiano: Nothing's really official right now. Honestly, I can't really give a definite answer on that. It's looking really good. It's feeling really good and the shows we played were amazing so far. And it looks like he's going to sing on the record. So we're just kinda taking it one day at a time and hoping for the best, but right now everything's really positive and everything feels great!

I Heart Guitar: There was such a buzz about the album when it was finished with Dan [Nelson] and I couldn't wait to hear it. So how are you going to approach it — are you going to keep the music as is, or change things with John's input?

Caggiano: The music is all there. What we really need to do is to figure out what parts are going to stay the same and what parts are going to change.

I Heart Guitar: What's it sound like?

Caggiano: In my opinion, it's pretty much "We've Come For You All" to the next level. The faster parts are way faster, the melodic parts are real catchy. There's definitely some stuff that's reminiscent of the "Among The Living" era, which is pretty cool. It's a really well-rounded record. It's killer. We're really psyched on it.
