Anthrax’s Charlie Benante + Butcher Babies’ Carla Harvey Go Public With Relationship
It looks like love is in the air for Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante and Butcher Babies frontwoman Carla Harvey. Although the couple have been dating for quite some time, they've only recently gone public with their relationship.
On Instagram last week, Harvey shared a romantic photo of herself with Benante. The two musicians are pictured in a warm embrace as the Butcher Babies singer used the photos' caption to commend her newly public beau.
"Thank you for always being there for me when I need you most," Harvey wrote before adding a classic expression of love and tagging the veteran Anthrax member who's been behind the kit for the band since 1983.
Blabbermouth reported that the couple have been together for three years. Harvey was previously married to a Gregory Coates, while Benante has a child named Mia Charley Benante with his former spouse, Sandra.
Benante also took part in the social media reveal of the relationship. He posted a pic of the pair at the Tokyo Disney Resort, the drummer saying the theme park was just a quick stop before Anthrax's set at Download Festival Japan.
Last year, Butcher Babies showcased their life on the road in a documentary-style music video. Anthrax, meanwhile, are plotting their "aggressive" next album while Scott Ian hits the bricks with his supergroup, The Damned Things.
