Jason Bittner Fills In For Charlie Benante

Shadows Fall drummer Jason Bittner will fill in for two gigs with Anthrax this weekend in Argentina, while the band’s founding drummer Charlie Benante continues to grieve the passing of his mother, who died on February 4.

This isn’t the first time Bittner has come to Anthrax’s rescue – he filled in a few gigs with the band in 2006 so that Benante could be with his wife Sandra for the birth of their first child.

Bittner will play with Anthrax tonight at Cosquin Rock in Cordoba and on Sunday at Malvinas in Buenos Aires.
