Revolver TV has uploaded a short interview with ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian conducted by Full Metal Jackie at the first annual Epiphone Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which was held on April 7 at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles. Watch the one-minute chat below.

Scott Ian revealed via a posting on his MySpace page that ANTHRAX will begin mixing its first new studio album in six years, "Worship Music", the first week of May. "We're gonna give birth to a really heavy baby," he wrote.

ANTHRAX will bring its brand of New York metal to Oklahoma when it kicks off the third annual, four-day Rocklahoma festival set for July 9-12 in Pryor, Oklahoma. ANTHRAX will headline the festival's July 9 opening night.

ANTHRAX's Rocklahoma festival appearance will be in support of "Worship Music", scheduled for an October release, and the May 12 release of the limited edition, three-record vinyl reissue of the band's first album, "Fistful of Metal", which originally came out twenty-five years ago. "Worship Music" will mark the studio debut of Dan Nelson who joins long-time members Benante and Scott Ian (rhythm guitar), Frank Bello (bass) and Rob Caggiano (lead guitar).

The Rocklahoma festival will be ANTHRAX's only North American concert appearance until they launch their own major trek here later this year.
