Although COVID is throwing the calendar completely off by a whole year, Anthrax will be bringing their 40th anniversary celebrations (now, technically, 41st) to Europe in 2022, including eight shows in the UK. And bonus good news: they’re bringing Virginia thrashers Municipal Waste with them.
"It sure has been a long time since we rock’n’rolled in the UK and Europe,” says drummer Charlie Benante, "but we’re coming back soon to bring the noise to all of you guys. Being that we can’t get over there until 2022, we’re going to make sure that every show will be an eventful one.
"We won’t just be playing four decades of songs to celebrate our ongoing 40th anniversary – hey, we’ll be giving you some history! – but we just might have some brand new ones for you as well. Can’t wait to see all your happy, smiling faces!"
