ANTHRAX's Frank Bello took part in a bass clinic on May 13 in San Isidro, a residential suburb of Buenos Aires, Argentina. More video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Asked about his increased number of clinic tour dates in recent years, Bello told Legendary Rock Interviews: "Man, I just love doing those things. Man, I don't know why, but it really appeals to me to get out there and talk and show some things to kids or adults or anyone who's just really interested in learning bass or getting into music. It honestly feels good to go and do stuff like that and I can't emphasize that enough."
ANTHRAX's May 10 concert at Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile was professionally filmed for a live DVD. The show consisted of a special extended set featuring tracks from the band's whole catalog.
SHADOWS FALL guitarist Jon Donais, who has been touring with ANTHRAX since Rob Caggiano's departure in January, handled the lead-guitar parts at the Santiago show.
ANTHRAX has just completed the "Metal Alliance Tour", which also featured EXODUS, HIGH ON FIRE, MUNICIPAL WASTE and HOLY GRAIL.
"Anthems", ANTHRAX's long-awaited, eight-track EP that pays tribute to the classic songs by some of the band's favorite acts from the 1970s, sold around 8,500 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 52 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD was released in North America on March 19 (MRI/Megaforce), and on March 22 in Europe (Nuclear Blast).
