Anthrax announce first UK headline tour in… far too long!

We will be there. Oh, yes… we will be there. After a ridiculously long period of turning up on these shores to play second fiddle to other bands (Slayer and Motorhead most recently) and popping up at festivals like this year’s Bloodstock, Anthrax are finally back with a headline tour – their first in many years.

anthrax-tour-2017Icing on the cake is that this will be a 30th anniversary tour for the classic Among The Living album and the band will be playing it in full each night. My neck muscles are already panicking…

Scott Ian, probably after yelling “Who loves thrash metal?!” uttered the following:

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!

Support will be from the rather excellent The Raven Age, so this is definitely a gig to arrive early for.
