Fall 2015/Spring 2016 Tour Dates With Slayer & Iron Maiden

A

Anthrax has released the first single, “Evil Twin,” off of their long awaited For All Kings Albumdue out 2/26/2016  (Megaforce/North America * Nuclear Blast/Europe, UK).

Musically, “Evil Twin” is a full-on thrash-metal tune that blasts off with a raging guitar riff, accelerates expeditiously and is completely uncontrollable.

“Yeah, that opening riff is really evil.  We had done a lot of touring with Death Angel and Exodus, so I was in a really thrashy state of mind when I starting writing the riffs for that song. I think along with Scott’s lyrics and Frank’s melodies, we came up with a really great, old school thrash metal feel.” – Charlie Benante

Beginning in the Fall of 2014, Anthrax – Benante (drums), Scott Ian (rhythm guitar), Frank Bello (bass), Joey Belladonna (vocals), and lead guitarist Jon Donais – took their time in the studio recording the follow up to their Grammy-nominated, critically-acclaimed 2011 album, Worship Music.  The band recorded some 20 original songs, almost twice as many as they had ever brought into the studio in the past.  In terms of how the new music sounds.

“The thing about Anthrax…we have this heavy, thrashy music and Joey’s powerful and melodic vocals.  I love heavy music, but I also love melody, so the challenge is to blend them together so they sound like Anthrax.  I think we’ve done a really good job of that on the new album.” – Frank Bello
