Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian has posted the following message in the CDC Fan Club section of the band's website:

"Finally, we're going back to work. We're going to Chicago to work our asses off and write a record. It's time. We're ready. One problem... no singer.

We were offered a direct support slot on a major tour this spring and (singer) Joey (Belladonna) decided he did not want to move forward. The reunion is over. We tried to make it work but I guess that's the problem, you can't 'make' something work. It's gotta be natural and at least becoming a band again and playing live was.

Over the course of around 140 shows we became a better band than we ever were before from 1984 - 92. The shows we played from April 2005 through October 2006 were incredible and some of the best gigs we've ever played. Doing Donington again was mind-blowing, Graspop was insane, the insanity in Finland, Chicago, Milwaukee, three times in L.A.!!!, three times across Western Canada!!, Glasgow!!!!!, London!!!, the Nokia show in NY, the Starland show in NJ, Judas Priest!, Rob Zombie!, Gigantour!!, Australia!!!, Japan!!!!!!, really, there's not a bummer in 19 months.

Thank you from the very depths of my soul for being the best fans in the world. We got to relive something that I never thought we could and it turned out better than I ever thought it would. We didn't have to force it, it just happened and it was great.

My curiosity was piqued by the idea of what Anthrax would sound like now with Joey singing. Over the last few months we've discussed this endlessly to no avail. The problems that were there could not be fixed no matter how hard we tried and in the end Joey made the decision.

I know a lot of you out there are disappointed by this and that's the last thing we ever want. None of us want to disappoint. If we were meant to make a reunion record we would've. Some things look easy on paper but the reality is that they are impossible and what works for one band doesn't work for others. Maybe we could've forced something and cashed in on a new record but that's not the way we operate.

My reality is I feel we have some unfinished business with the We've Come For You All lineup and I will do my best to finish it.

I hope you can find it in your hearts to support all of us in whatever happens going forward.

(Drummer) Charlie (Benante), Frankie (Bello) and I are excited about creating new music and for now we will focus on that and write another killer Anthrax record."
