NYC thrash legends Anthrax return to the UK next spring for their first headline tour in over a decade. They were last here in a double header with Slayer but this time round the band will perform their 1987 classic Among The Living in its entirety.
Far from being a nostalgia act, the veteran band are riding high following the success of their eleventh album For All Kings which was released earlier this year. In February Musos’ Guide said “Anthrax have managed to recapture the spirit of their earlier work...For All Kings sits comfortably with their very best work.”
Guitarist and songwriter Scott Ian promises a killer show, “Finally! We've been looking forward to headlining in the U.K. for so long!!! We have a killer set planned, new stuff, old faves, deep tracks and Among front to back. You'd better start getting in shape now for the epic wardance!”
This tour will mark 30 years of the iconic album, with support from up-and-coming British metallers The Raven Age.
