Looks Like There Won't Be An ANTHRAX Cover Album After All

Last week, I posted that Anthrax would be coming out with a covers EP later in September that would feature songs from the 70s. Apparently that actually isn't happening. Scott Ian told VH1 Classic Radio that Anthrax always records cover songs when they get bored during the tracking of their material: 

“We’re not working on a covers album. It’s not at all what we’re doing. We just always record cover songs. They just happen when we’re in the studio or when we’re touring, we get bored of jamming on our own songs at sound check so you end up jamming on cover songs and eventually we’ll end up recording them and eventually, somehow, they end up getting released in some way, shape or form as B-sides, but we’re definitely not working on a covers album.”

I don't really see why Charlie Benante would announce something like that if it really wasn't happening, but what do I know?  I just thought I would let you guys know, since you're bummed out about it now. [via MetalSucks]
