Anthrax nya sångare långtidssjuk eller får kicken?



Som bekant så ställde Anthrax tyvärr in Sonisphere-giget i lördags och ett flertal andra spelningar. Synd som fan, för jag hade verkligen verkligen sett fram emot att äntligen få se Scott Ian och co live.

Nu har Anthrax släppt denna info på hemsidan, info som förbryllar mig lite:
” 07.21.09 OFFICIAL STATEMENT FROM ANTHRAX
As announced last week, thrash legends ANTHRAX regretfully cancelled the first three dates on the second leg of their European tour due to new vocalist Dan Nelson's unexpected illness. An additional seven European dates are also cancelled, those scheduled from July 22 to July 30. Anthrax is thrilled to announce that they will play the August 1 Sonisphere festival in Knebworth, England, with their good friend John Bush joining them for a very special one off performance.

The members of Anthrax have confirmed the departure of vocalist Dan Nelson. In light of this development, Anthrax's slot on the U.S. Slipknot dates set for August and September, has also been cancelled. Anthrax is already actively considering lead singer candidates, and look forward to hitting the road before the end of the year.

07.17.09 EUROPEAN DATES CANCELLED
The members of Anthrax regretfully announce that the first three shows of their European tour scheduled to begin tomorrow/Saturday, July 18** are canceled. Yesterday, lead singer Dan Nelson unexpectedly informed the band that he was seriously ill and unable to travel or perform at this time. Options for the balance of Anthrax's European tour dates are being addressed posthaste. The members of Anthrax are devastated by this unfortunate turn of events and ask all of their fans to join them in wishing Dan the speediest of recoveries.”


Och så detta:

“***UPDATE: According to ANTHRAX's management, the band's new album, "Worship Music", which was previously due in Europe on October 23 via Nuclear Blast Records, will now be "pushed back to a later date." It is not presently clear if Dan Nelson's tracks will be erased from the CD, which was recently mixed at a New Orleans studio by Dave Fortman (a former member of UGLY KID JOE who has also worked with artists such asMUDVAYNE, EVANESCENCE).***”

Märkligt detta. Ska man tolka det som att denna nya sångare Dan Nelson fick kicken helt och hållet och att de kommer att söka nya sångare? Vad är det för sjukdom Dan egentligen har? Har han gått ner i knarkträsket? Och visst är det märkligt och samtidigt tufft att John Bush ska gå tillbaka och köra ett gig med sitt forna band? Vem vet, detta kanske leder till något mer. De kanske röker fredspipa och han joinar bandet igen. Så vill jag ha det!
