After releasing his memoir last year, Anthrax bass man Frank Bello has announced that he will be following it up with his debut solo EP. Then I’m Gone will include three original songs as well as a scored audiobook with excerpts from his autobiography.

“I revisited some really dark times in my life when I was writing my book, and writing these songs was the result of reliving them,” Bello explains. “Music has always been a great outlet for me as a coping mechanism. I felt it was a good time to put out these songs for people who connected with the book and maybe some who haven’t yet. Thanks for listening!”

As such, the new EP is described as “intimate, revealing, and powerful,” just as his book. Then I’m Gone will be released a deluxe gatefold split 12” in limited edition purple and white/purple splatter variants. Preorders are open now through Rare Bird.
