Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on


John Bush/Armored Saint/Anthrax fans, pay attention!

A nice surprise came across my desk this morning to share with all of you - a FREE demo track from the upcoming Armored Saint studio album!


It makes me so happy just to be able to say the words "Armored Saint studio album," but then I actually heard the track. And played it again. And again. Three times in a row.

According to, Armored Saint have completed writing material for a new album and will begin recording in early fall for a spring 2010 release on Metal Blade Records.

Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Chilled", "La Raza" and "Black Feet".

I couldn't be happier - John Bush is one of my all-time favorite metal vocalists, and how appropriate it is that we get a new Armored Saint track just one day after posting the indie power metal edition of the Monday Morning Mix?

Hey Paul, I'm thinking we might have to do this more often - I have other bands I want to hear new stuff from, too!

John Bush got a raw deal from Anthrax, and is one of the true good guys in the biz - I'm happy to see him back making music, after taking some time off to enjoy some family time (while also recording some commercial voiceover stuff for Burger King! Cha-ching!)

And it's interesting that we're talking about Anthrax - their latest lead singer Dan Nelson just got the boot for circumstances that are slightly unclear at this point, but the word is out there, and it doesn't look too good on Nelson's side.

But it's good for Anthrax fans - stepping in to help out for a one-off performance with the band? Mr. John Bush. Bush will join the band on August 1st at the Sonisphere Festival in Knebworth, England. All future touring has been suspended while the band look for a new lead singer.

Here's the official statement from Anthrax:

"As announced last week, thrash legends Anthrax regretfully cancelled the first three dates on the second leg of their European tour due to new vocalist Dan Nelson's unexpected illness. An additional seven European dates are also cancelled, those scheduled from July 22 to July 30.

"Anthrax is thrilled to announce that they will play the August 1 Sonisphere festival in Knebworth, England, with their good friend John Bush joining them for a very special one-off performance.

"The members of Anthrax have confirmed the departure of vocalist Dan Nelson. In light of this development, Anthrax's slot on the U.S. Slipknot dates set for August and September, has also been cancelled. Anthrax is already actively considering lead singer candidates, and looks forward to hitting the road before the end of the year."

I've got my fingers crossed that perhaps future recording and touring might happen with John Bush and Anthrax. But for now, it looks like a one-off one time gig for Bush and the 'Thrax.

Worship Music, the new album from Anthrax featuring Nelson on vocals, was due for release on October 25th. That release has been momentarily shelved.

Meanwhile, Armored Saint fans will have the chance to see the band perform the new track live in mid-August when the band plays the Rock Gone Wild festival on August 23rd.

The Saint is Back!

    ….and now this from Dan Nelson, apparently the latest in a long line of singers to find out that they were fired via the internet.

    No personal knock on Bush, but I lost interest in Anthrax in a big way after Belladonna’s departure. Sound of White Noise was decent but that band became a total non-factor afterwards.
