Members of Anthrax, Fall Out Boy and Every Time I Die have joined forces to create a metal supergroup called The Damned Things.

Fall Out Boy's guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley have teamed up with Every Time I Die's vocalist Keith Buckley and Anthrax's guitar players Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano in what could be one of rock's most unusual comings together in recent history.

The band came together through mutual friend David Karon, who will now also play bass in the band. And despite Scott Ian's initial reservations about meeting with Trohman, the pair hit it off immediately and found themselves jamming. Described by Scott as "Kyuss meeting Thin Lizzy", it's uncertain how long the project will take to come into fruition with day job commitments, but all parties are excited about the songs created.

"We just started working on songs together and I really dug it," Scott exclusively revealed to Rock Sound. "It just felt really good. From there we decided that obviously both of us are pretty busy in our day jobs but let's see what we can do with this. Even if it takes us five years to make a record, why not?

"It's super fun and it's something that we do totally take seriously because we love the music we've created. People think of Fall Out Boy and they think of Pete Wentz and Patrick. These two guys, man, they're fucking hardcore dudes. Joe writes some amazing riffs. We have this song called "A Great Reckoning" that I swear to God, this song could be on any Thin Lizzy record. He fucking blew my mind with this song and I just can't wait for people to hear it."

Commenting on the project, Joe told Rock Sound: "Scott's right hand is the reason I got into playing punk rock, hardcore and metal! Having Keith as part of the mix is insane, we all know he writes incredible lyrics but he is also a really good singer. That is showcased in Every Time I Die, but we want him to go more into singing than screaming on this project."

Having already demoed and written over 15 songs, Rock Sound understands recording is scheduled to begin before Christmas. All info about the band to come soon on http://www.thedamnedthings.com.

Considering I hate Fall Out Boy and don't really like Anthrax for that matter...I really have no interest in this. I just think its an interesting collaboration.

Actually..i have heard that FOB's guitarist has a pretty big interest in metal, he just doesn't play that style with that band. So it'll be interesting to see how this all works out.

This could, If done right, Introduce the younger generations into Metal. Not a bad thing at all really.
Doc Godin - 29.11.2009 at 00:21  
The moment I saw this I said to myself "I bet Scott Ian is behind this". Whatd'ya know? I was right.

What da f**k !!!!!!

I don't know much about Every Time I Die, so I won't comment on their involvement. However, Anthrax and Fall Out Boy? That's a weird combination.
Number Juan - 30.11.2009 at 10:01  
Hahaha. I almost expect it to be a joke but April 1st is far away.
Marcel Hubregtse - 30.11.2009 at 14:26  
They'd wish. Kyuss meets Thin Lizzy? Well, impossible for this so-called supergroup. Anthrax haven't written a decent song since Among The Living and one or two on Sound Of White Noise. And I'm not even statring about the other two bands.
Josh Homme, John Garcia, Scott Reager and the ghost of Phil Lynnott are probably hunting down Scott Ian for his blasphemous statement.
MeloDeathViking - 30.11.2009 at 16:14  
As far as I know, and I could be wrong, the two members of Fall Out Boy that are in the band both used to be in hardcore/metalcore bands before they joined Fall Out Boy. So you never know, could be atleast interesting. I'm not really intrested in any of the three bands, so I have no intrest in this band, just making an observation.
Amatsu Mikaboshi - 01.12.2009 at 17:22  
I just want a NEW ANTHRAX ALBUM!!!

*Insanely laughing uncontrollably at the news and that Robotnik reaction for a while...

One of the worst bits of news I've ever heard. It'll sound like the inside of a monkey's ass.

Supergroup is one word with different meaning than "really great, the best band"
