ANTHRAX will be coming to UK in support of their most recent album Worship Music as part of a double headline tour with Motorhead.
Anthrax ,who along with Slayer, Metallica and Megadeth -The Big Four - are credited with co-founding the thrash genre, will soon be returning to the UK to tour their latest album Worship Music ,the band's first new studio album in seven years, and a full-on supporting world tour.
Worship Music will be released this Fall on Mega force Records, and marks the return of singer Joey Belladonna, an essential part of Anthrax's line-up from1985 to 1992, who joins long-time members Scott Ian (rhythm guitar), Frank Bello (bass), Charlie Benante (drums), and Rob Caggiano (lead guitar).
With Belladonna on vocals, Anthrax hit the road in early summer 2010 that included seven historic 'The Big Four' dates, as well as a Fall North American tour with Slayer and Megadeth.
'We wanted to get comfortable playing with each other again, and then use that energy to start making new music.' 'We've had an unusual luxury of hindsight,' added Ian.
'We finished [Worship Music] in late 2009, we've lived with those 12 songs since then, so we've been able to look back on them and see which tracks we really love and what we can do to make them even better, especially with Joey back in the fold.'
