Anthrax Guitarist Filming New Fox Poker Show

ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has issued the following update:

"Played poker for 16 hours [in Las Vegas] yesterday. Online and live tourney and then the Poker Room at the Palms. You can say I'm hooked. Finished sixth in the 'Beauty And The Bet' tourney. Phil Hellmuth was very proud of his pupil.

"Filming the 'Best Damn Poker Tournament Ever' this week for Fox.

"Gearheads, check this out. The H4 is sick. It's a studio in your hand (and it looks like a Taser!!!).

"New ANTHRAX is killing."

Scott Ian recently told MTV.com that he, drummer Charlie Benante and bassist Frank Bello have spent most of 2007 writing and fine-tuning a batch of new songs, which Ian said are along the lines of the band's 2003 album, "We've Come for You All".

At this point, ANTHRAX have a pile of songs, and they're just waiting for the right guy to fill the frontman position so they can proceed. While they've got a short list of singers with whom they're in discussions, there's no word regarding who will fill John Bush and Joey Belladonna shoes.

"It's getting to be a little bit of a problem with the material we're writing," Ian admitted. "Because the singer we use will obviously have some bearing on what kind of songs we write. But we know that we want to make a proper follow-up to 'We've Come for You All', which we all loved. But we want it to be even better: heavier, faster, hookier. As songwriters, you try to improve on your craft. And fortunately, we've got the time to make that happen. We have no deadline at all because we've got no label deal, so my attitude is, 'Let's make the most metal record we've ever made in our lives,' and I would have to say that's coming to fruition."
