Altitudes & Attitude, a collaboration between Anthrax’s Frank Bello and Megadeth’s David Ellefson — two virtuosic bass players who’ve anchored some of the fiercest thrash records of all time – released their debut album “Get It Out” January 18th, on Megaforce Records!
This album exudes rock’ and roll edge and if you are a fan of The Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam and Queens of the Stone Age, “Get It Out” is for you!
“Get It Out” is the result of nearly four years of writing and recording sessions—and decades of touring, searching, striving and living. “I’ve learned that writing songs is very cathartic,” says Bello, who has long made songwriting a daily practice. When Anthrax is off the road, he tries out new material at open mics around New York City. “A lot of these lyrics are about the inner struggles of my life, and about the rage that has built up from my life experiences—my brother’s murder; my father abandoning my family when we were young, leaving us with no funds to pay the bills. … The ups and downs of life in general. I’ve always had an anger inside that music really helps me deal with.”
“The album has the perfect title,” Ellefson adds. “This is music that has been living inside of us for so long. There’s a big musical part of each of us that doesn’t get heard anywhere else.”
