Altitudes & Attitude, the new project Anthrax's Frank Bello and Megadeth's David Ellefson has given metal fans the guiltiest of pleasures - new material that was created together by two of metal's most loved bassists.
Released on January 14, the self-titled EP packs a punch with just three songs that started out as simple bass ideas by two long time friends. With Bello on vocals and both he and Ellefson playing guitars and other instruments, Altitudes & Attitude allows for both musicians to express their creativity without being tied to the sounds and themes of their regular bands. - - - Not that anything is wrong with either of those 'other' bands.
But probably the most exciting aspect of the Altitudes & Attitude project is that it's coming to Chicago!
On Saturday, March 22, come join Bello and Ellefson for a show at Reggie's Chicago. The Altitudes & Attitude live experience includes way more than just three songs, they've put together an interactive format that incorporates a clinic format, Q&A with the audience, and some classic cover songs that have inspired both musicians over the years by artists such as Cheap Trick, The Clash, The Ramones, and more.
