Megadeth and Anthrax men to release Altitudes & Attitude album in January

Megadeth’s David Ellefson and Anthrax’s Frank Bello have released a lyric video for their Altitudes & Attitude single Out Here.

It’s been lifted from the project’s debut album Get It Out, which will launch on January 18 via Megaforce Records and is the result of four-years of writing and recording sessions.

Bello says: “I’ve learned that writing songs is very cathartic. 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 and the ups and downs of life in general. 

"I’ve always had an anger inside that music really helps me deal with.” 

Ellefson adds: “The album has the perfect title. 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.” 

The two bassist are joined on the Jay Ruston-produced record by A Perfect Circle drummer Jeff Friedl, along with a number of guests including guitarists Ace Frehley and Gus G and follows Altitudes & Attitude’s self-titled three-track EP which was released in 2014.

The band will also play four shows in England in February in support of the album.
