Anthrax is the main band I've heard talk about it. They've claimed everything from fans not having the attention span to fans wanting more output over a longer period (i.e. multiple eps a year rather than 1 lp). Bottom line is that Charlie "Don't Pick On Me" Benate and Scott "I Love You, Lars" Ian are out of ideas and haven't been able to come up with something decent since before the pandemic. Both Benate and Ian are looking for excuses to prolong the recording process and given they play the same 8-10 song playlist (which can include up to 3 covers) some might say it's pointless them even doing an EP.
