Sepultura guitarist Andreas Kisser will play eight shows with Anthrax in July as a temporary replacement for Scott Ian, whose wife, Pearl Aday, is reportedly expecting the couple’s first baby.

The daughter of legendary crooner Meat Loaf, Pearl was named after the infamous Janis Joplin and is the god daughter to Maria Muldaur. In addition, she has toured as a back-up singer with Motley Crue and she and her band have opened for Velvet Revolver. When asked what it’s like having the iconic Meat Loaf as his father-in-law, Ian said in a recent interview, “It’s like having anyone as your father-in-law. It’s not like he’s on stage when you’re hanging out with the guy. We actually had dinner with him last night, and all we talked about was fantasy football. He’s just a regular guy who happens to be a legendary rock star.”

Sepultura is currently mixing its new album, “Kairos”, for a late spring/early summer release via Nuclear Blast Records.
