Following the departure of guitarist Rob Caggiano, Anthrax has announced that Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais will step in temporarily to replace him as the band soldiers on. Donais will temporarily fill in for Anthrax's upcoming tour dates in India, the series of Soundwave Festival shows in Australia, and the Metal Alliance Tour.

"Jon is a bro and he's also a total f**king ripper," said 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 been 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."

First Bittner filling in on drums and now Donais on guitar! All I can say is excellent choices on both counts. Can't wait to see Anthrax Down Under next month - bring it on!

I was really hoping they'd get back Dan Spitz, and reunite the classic line-up once more... ah well, I guess this is only a temporary replacement! lol
