ANTHRAX XL, THE BAND’S 40TH ANNIVERSARY LIVESTREAM CONCERT

BLU-RAY / CD / DIGITAL RELEASED TODAY

Check Out Anthrax with Chuck D Performing “Bring The Noise”

From the Livestream HERE

 

LOS ANGELES, CA — Friday, July 15, 2022 — Today, Anthrax XL, Anthrax’s 40th-anniversary livestream concert is released.  The title is now available in North America on Blu-ray, CD, and digitally (Megaforce), with a European digital release today (Nuclear Blast), followed by a Blu-ray release later this year.  Orders can be placed HERE.

 

Also released today is the third track / video from the Livestream, “Bring The Noise,” featuring special guest Chuck D, viewed HERE.  Originally released in 1991 on Anthrax’s Attack of the Killer B's album, the song helped break down barriers when the band collaborated on the track with Public Enemy.  Its success led to Anthrax and Public Enemy hitting the road together, opening many  people’s eyes when they performed “Bring The Noise” together live, and birthing a rap-metal milestone.  

 

Anthrax celebrated its 40th-anniversary last year, July 18, 2021, but due to COVID, had to cancel its global touring plans, scheduled for the band to celebrate the occasion with their fans all around the world.  About to mark its 41st year, the band - Joey Belladonna, Scott Ian, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, and guitarist Jon Donais are due to finally head out on that global anniversary tour.  On July 26, Anthrax will kick off its 26-date co-headline North American tour with Black Label Society and joined by Hatebreed, and then heads to the UK and Europe in late September to headline a five-week run.  Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased at anthrax.com  All dates are below.

ABOUT ANTHRAX:  

July 18, 2021 marked Anthrax's 40th anniversary, during which time the band released 11 studio albums, was awarded multiple Gold and Platinum certifications, received six GRAMMY nominations, and a host of other accolades from the media, the music industry, and fans.  In 1991, the band helped break down race and genre barriers when they collaborated with Public Enemy on the track "Bring The Noise" and was the first metal band to have its music heard on Mars when NASA played "Got The Time" to wake up the Mars Rover in 2012.  Along with Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth, Anthrax is a card-carrying member of The Big Four, the four bands that defined the speed/thrash/metal genre. Anthrax has also introduced a series of now sold-out signature whiskeys and bourbons and partnered with the Stockholm-based NEZUMI Studios for a high-end, limited-edition Baleine dive watch. Twenty-twenty-one also saw the release of Z2 Comics' "Among the Living" graphic novel with a track-by-track storyline inspired by Anthrax's iconic 1987 album, Among The Living.  The book pulls together a "who's who" of names from the worlds of comics and music who created "bubble dialogue" and original artwork to express what the songs meant to them. Taking advantage of COVID-19's prohibition of concert touring, the band has been hard at work writing the next Anthrax album.

 

For Anthrax, 2022 is already off to a great start, but their 40th-anniversary isn't quite in the band's rear-view mirror.  Unable to launch a planned 40th anniversary world tour due to COVID, the band will launch their 40th anniversary World Tour this year.  The celebrations start July 26 in North America, co-headlining with Black Label Society, then a headline trek in the UK and Europe in the fall.
