Guitarist DAN SPITZ Says ANTHRAX Touring Cycle Is 'Not Over'

ANTHRAX guitarist Dan Spitz has posted the following message on his official web site:

"Well, all you peeps, I'm back from the European tour and happy to report complete freakin' chaos and a wooosie feeling of jet lag from my trip aboard the Milan to the U.S.A. flight of doom. Thank you to all the sick fans who came to the shows and especially the absolute killer metal scene in Finland! That country is most definitely bubbling from the icebergs to the soil with metal and leads the world in metal running through the veins. It has also become my third favorite country in Europe. I love the people, the feeling I get in my soul and most of all the kindness and generosity of my fans both old and young. It's like the 'I can cut the air with a knife' feeling of yesteryear before every show. It reminds me of watching Cliff Burton of METALLICA do his bass solo when we toured with them. I think the crowd was louder than the sound system! ....

"As good as it feels to be home, I have many things in the works behind the scenes already. Did you think the ANTHRAX touring cycle was over? Nope! More to come soon on this as it is hush hush for today.

"Also to report is the first tour with my prototype solid Korina / ebony fingerboard / three P-90 alnico magnet Paul Reed Smith guitar. The only one in existence. OMGoodness I have finally found nirvana in a tone machine! This thing is never leaving my side ever. I'm going to beat the crap out of it until I reach the forevermore with Hendrix. Winn and Joe Knaggs at PRS are simply geniuses in creating this monster with its internal hollow tone chambers and hand picked wood from there private stock room. We are officially underway in creating the first of many 'Spitz' signature model guitars to be sold worldwide in the coming months. Get your checkbooks ready for the waiting list! I've also been blessed to visit my favorite place on earth once again the 'Duomo' church in Milan, Italy. If you ever get the chance to see architecture that simply can not be put into any human words please get on a Jet and get you and your Mrs. to the center of Milan and go inside. It will be a life-changing experience, to say the least. I brought the boys from the band BEYOND FEAR (Ripper Owens' band) there to give them some culture and I think they can't speak now. Haaaa haaa...."
