Yes, Scott Ian’s baby came a little early. But that doesn’t mean that the guitarist will be playing with Anthrax this summer.
As previously planned, Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser will fill in for Ian at 11 Anthrax shows this coming July; Ian wants to spend time with his new family, and who could blame him.
The first shows Scott will play after his “paternity leave will be the July 23 Heavy T.O. festival in Toronto, Ontario, and the July 24 Heavy MTL festival in Montreal, Quebec.
Ian and his wife, Pearl Aday, welcomed a son on Sunday, June 19 at 10:19 a.m. named Revel Young Ian. He weighed in at six pounds, nine ounces and both mother and baby are “doing brilliantly,” according to Scott.
