Since Rob Caggiano‘s departure from Anthrax in January, Jon Donais has been filling in and doing an amazing job of it! So it came as no surprise that Scott Ian officially announced him as being the new guitarist in the band recently on the “Metal Hammer” show on TeamRock Radio. Here’s what he said, “Jon’s been with us since February, and I think I can safely say he’s passed the audition… [laughs]. I know we haven’t said anything official yet, but in my mind, he’s the guy. I’m sure some type of official announcement… because in this world, people apparently need that kind of information so they can sleep well at night. But as far as I’m concerned, Jon is the guitar player in ANTHRAX.”
Today Anthrax has unveiled for the first official photo of the new lineup! Check it out below and let’s all congratulate Jon on his new gig with one of the most legendary heavy metal bands ever! I know it’s a dream come true for him, and he ABSOLUTELY deserves it! Congrats!
