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.
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.
