That’s right, fans of the thrash.

Anthrax are in writing mode, folks.

They’ve commenced the writing for their next studio album, which they claim’ll be out in 2014, at some point.

Guitarist Scott Ian tweeted over the weekend: “Today [drummer Charlie Benante] and [bassist Frank Bello] are coming over to start writing for the next record. The few skeletons that are rattling around sound vicious!”

Oh, I’m so sure.

This will be the band’s first new album with new guitarist Jon Donais of Shadows Fall.

It’s still weird to see pictures of Jon with Anthrax, because he’s such a baby in comparison. Like, definitely by far the youngest dude in the band.

It’s also weird to see a dude who grow up on a band in that band.
