John Bush Hasn't Ruled Out Re-Recording "Worship Music" Yet

[Press Release]

MetalSucks' Axl Rosenberg recently spoke to John Bush from Armored Saint and Anthrax about getting back together with Armored Saint after all this time, the writing process for La Raza, whether or not the band has any plans to tour, and what exactly is going on with Anthrax. Here's an excerpt:

I have to ask you… Everybody is kind of wondering what’s going on with you and Anthrax, because it seems like every time somebody asks Scott [Ian] or somebody else in the band gets asked, they kind of go “We still don’t really know.”

Well, we just did these shows in Australia that were really fun. They were for the Soundwave Festival, and they were great. I had committed to doing these shows to these four shows in June as well as more festivals in August. As of now we’re trying to figure out a way to see if we can re-record some of the songs that the band had already recorded [for Worship Music]. We’re just trying to iron out some of the legalities on it. That’s where we are at today.

So you think you would be re-recording some of Dan Nelson’s vocals?

That is what they want to do, and it’s been a conflict for me, to be quite frank, simply because I kind of felt like I wasn’t part of the creation of it. On all the other Anthrax records, I was part of it when it happened. I just wasn’t involved in this, and it’s something that they’ve already actually completed. I haven’t disregarded it completely, and I know it’s important to them. I realize they made this record and they’re kind of sitting on it. They want to put some of it out, if not everything… at least a single, and we’ve talked about [releasing] an EP. We’re still trying to figure out if we can do that, especially in conjunction with these shows in June. We’ve just got to kind of iron out some specifics. That’s where we’re at today, March 15, 2010.
