Video Footage Of ANTHRAX With Jason Bittner At Mayhem Fest; Charlie Benante Sitting Out Due To Injury!

Once again, SHADOWS FALL's Jason Bittner is filling in for ANTHRAX's Charlie Benante on drums at the first few weeks of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. Below is some video footage of the tour's kick off this past Saturday (June 30th) in San Bernardino, California.

So why is Charlie Benante not touring with ANTHRAX? Well, Charlie is currently recovering from a minor hand injury. He should be back with ANTHRAX soon! Bittner previously joined ANTHRAX on stage on November 8, 2011 at Northern Lights in Clifton Park, New York to perform the ANTHRAX classic "Madhouse". He also filled in on drums for Benante for two ANTHRAX shows in January 2006 after Charlie was forced to leave the tour early to attend to his wife Sandra, who gave birth to the couple's first child, Mia Charley Benante.

Earlier this year, Benante and ANTHRAX bassist Frank Bello (who is Charlie's nephew) missed several shows on ANTHRAX's North American tour in order to spend time with Charlie's mother, who was terminally ill. On February 4, Benante informed fans via his official web site that his mother passed away.

In more ANTHRAX news, according to guitarist Scott Ian, ANTHRAX's sold-out March 15 concert at O2 Islington Academy in London, England was filmed for an upcoming DVD.
