ANTHRAX Singer: 'What Doesn't Die' Video To Feature 'A Bunch Of Zombies'

ANTHRAX frontman John Bush recently spoke to 411Music about the band's upcoming activities, including their video for the track "What Doesn't Die", which they plan on shooting later this month. "[There are] supposed to be a bunch of zombies in it," he said. "It'll be really creepy. We're looking forward to it. The guy, Brian Posehn, who's a comedian and actor, will be directing. He's the guy who's in 'Just Shoot Me' — he's the blond, tall, balding guy. He's a friend of the band and he's going to direct it. We're also going to do a recording of a bunch of old ANTHRAX songs — stuff from the Joey Belladonna era. Do kind of a live recording of it, just in the studio, and the DVD of that and that's going to surface in different ways. There's going to be a boxed set next year, too, that Island [Records] is putting out throughout the career of the band. So there's a lot of cool stuff coming up, and then I'm sure we're going to continue touring. I don't know when we're going to come back down here…we're going to do another run in November and December and then we'll take a break for the holidays. And then we're hoping to go to South America, Japan, Australia — we haven't been to any of those places in a while. Well, we played the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan this year, but we haven't done a legit tour there since '98. And, who knows? I'm sure touring is going to be a big aspect of it because that's what it is."

In the same interview, Bush spoke about the band's well-publicized label problems and commented on the job the group's current record company, Sanctuary Records, has done promoting their latest release, "We've Come For You All".

"Well, we're not super thrilled yet, to be honest with you. I mean, we think they can do more. But we're working with them. They have a lot of bands and a lot of bands that are similar to us like MINISTRY and QUEENSRŸCHE and IRON MAIDEN... bands that had a history. And it's a new generation, they're still trying to remain cutting edge and stay very current, you know. It's up to them to inform people beyond the ANTHRAX fans. The average ANTHRAX fan is going to be somewhat aware that we have a new record, but we're still trying to reach newer people. That's what the record company's job is, to let people know that, 'Hey, you're not a huge ANTHRAX fan? You should get this record because of A, B, C, and D.' I mean, the ANTHRAX fans, they'll know. They're on it. But it's up to them to find the outer reaches. And I think they still have a little more work to do in that area, but we're staying behind it and we're trying to be all unified."
