Official press release:

When it came time for thrash rockers Anthrax to start the writing and recording process for the follow up to 2011’s Grammy-nominated Worship Music, named one of the best metal albums of the year by countless media outlets, there was no doubt that the entire band wanted producer Jay Ruston there with them from the start. Ruston first worked with Anthrax during the final-stages of Worship Music, but for this new album, he’s been “in the room” every step of the way. Anthrax’s Scott Ian said:

“He’s become an intregal part of our process, that’s for sure. It’s cliche, but he really has become a sixth member.”

In this video clip, Ian, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, Joey Belladonna and Jonathan Donais talk about Ruston’s invaluable contribution to the making of For All Kings, due out February 26 (Megaforce/North America, Nuclear Blast/International).
