Altitudes & Attitude Dig Deep With ‘Out Here’ – Exclusive Lyric Video Premiere
Altitudes & Attitude, the musical partnership between thrash bassists David Ellefson of Megadeth and Frank Bello of Anthrax, are ready to take flight again after debuting in 2014. The band will follow their self-titled EP with a new album titled Get It Out in early 2019, and they've teamed up with Loudwire to bring you the exclusive premiere of the lyric video for the new song "Out Here."
The track features a guest turn on guitar by Bello's Anthrax bandmate, guitarist Jon Donais, who adds some blistering licks to a very personal song for Bello. The track centers of the musician's abandonment issues after his father left his family when he was 10.
"Time to hide and live a lie / And hide inside the pieces of your life / Time to hide the pain inside / Deny the lives of people left behind," sings Bello in the powerful track.
“I’ve learned that writing songs is very cathartic,” Bello says. “A lot of these lyrics are about the inner struggles of my life, and about the rage that has built up from my life experiences -- my brother’s murder; my father abandoning my family when we were young, leaving us with no funds to pay the bills ... the ups and downs of life in general. I’ve always had an anger inside that music really helps me deal with.”
The upcoming album finds Ellefson and Bello collaborating with drummer Jeff Friedl and producer Jay Ruston, while a number of guests also turn up on the disc, including Ace Frehley, Gus G., Nita Strauss, Christian Martucci and Steel Panther's Satchel.
Look for the Get It Out album arriving from Altitudes & Attitude on Jan. 18 via Megaforce. "Out Here" will be available on Spotify starting tomorrow (Oct. 12), while pre-orders for the Get It Out album can be found here.
