Anthrax Announce Temporary Guitarist

ESP Guitars

Anthrax have just announced that Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais will step in for Rob Caggiano, who recently left the thrash legends.

Donais will temporarily fill in for Anthrax’s upcoming tour dates in India, the series of Soundwave Festival shows in Australia, and the North American Metal Alliance Tour (dates below).

“Jon is a bro and he’s also a total fucking ripper,” said Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. “I’ve worked with him twice before on side projects and he tears it up. I’m excited to have him on my right burning up the stage with Anthrax. 13′s gonna be a good year.”

“I grew up on Anthrax, they’re the thrash scene, they’re one of The Big Four, I’d be crazy to not want to play with them,” said Donais. “Initially, Rob called and told me he was leaving the band, and asked if I’d be interested in filling in. Then Scott called me and everything fell into place. Rob and I are using Skype to work on solos and other guitar parts, so he’s being great. I also have to give special thanks to my band – Brian, Matt, Jason and Ed – who have been incredibly supportive and encouraged me to do this.”
