Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante has published quite a few covers throughout quarantine, and now he's releasing a handful of them as a covers album. Benante will release Silver Linings on May 14 and will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Neal Casal Music Foundation, which according to The PRP is "an organization that provides musical instruments and lessons to students and makes donations to much-needed mental health organizations that support musicians in need."

"Back in February of last year with COVID and all the other B.S. that was going on, I was glued to the 24-hour news cycle on the TV and my phone, and I started to get really depressed," said Benante.
"My girlfriend said I needed to turn off the news and suggested I do something creative, whether it was art or drumming or writing new songs, and she was right."

"I knew a lot of my musician friends were going through the same thing I had been, so I started asking them if they wanted to get involved, play some songs with me, maybe make a video – that’s how it all started."

"This isn’t a solo album. This is a record of my favorite songs done with some of my friends during a very dark time. We found a shining light and this is the result of that light. I was really happy that my musician friends came on board and helped make this record what it is. I appreciate all of them, and they all did such a fantastic job. Despite all of the darkness we’ve experienced this past year, there are ‘silver linings,’ that’s why I chose that title for the album."

  1. “City Of Blinding Lights” (U2)
  2. “Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns” (Mother Love Bone)
  3. “Teardrop” (Massive Attack)
