Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante was interviewed on a recent installment of HATEBREED frontman Jamey Jasta’s official podcast, “The Jasta Show”. Speaking about singer Joey Belladonna’s 2010 return to ANTHRAX after a short-lived reunion several years earlier, Benante said: “Well, you know, we had this reunion that we did back in ’05, and I think it was for the wrong reasons. It wasn’t about repairing friendships first; it was about other people were telling us, ‘Go do it,’ and then we were just kind of thrusted into this thing and we didn’t have a chance to really work on our relationship first, and it fell apart; it wasn’t real. You know what I mean? And I think we learned from that a) life is too short, [and] b) do you really wanna not do this anymore? Do you really wanna make something of this? And then we repaired our relationship with Joey, and then we made it happen, and it worked out the right way this time; it was very organic and it wasn’t… We weren’t pushed into doing it; it wasn’t fake [and] it was very real. So I feel that we did this thing the right way.”
