Among The Living is arguably one of the greatest thrash metal albums ever. So the news that Anthrax are planning on playing it in full in the UK early next year is a pretty big deal! One of the highlights of Sonisphere 2014 at Knebworth when they performed the album in a very special set in the Bohemia tent, The British Isles will have a wider chance to see this memorable album performed in full. Among The Living will form just part of Anthrax’s very special “An Evening With” shows, where they will also play songs from their latest album For All Kings and assorted other classic Anthrax tracks old and new.
The tour will take in eight shows across England and Scotland in February 2017, starting in Birmingham and finishing in Norwich. The full list of shows can be found below:

“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!
See you soon my friends.
Anthrax’s latest album, For All Kings, was released earlier this year through Nuclear Blast Records.
