Tomorrow night in Pittsburgh, PA., Anthrax's first tour of the new year kicks off - and with it, the mania for the band's forthcoming album intensifies.
This is a big year for thrash legends Anthrax as 2016 marks the band's 35th anniversary, and the forthcoming album, For All Kings due on on February 26 is being referred to as one of the most anticipated metal releases in the last several years. And proving just that, the band recently released a second song from the album entitled "Breathing Lightning" - and it quickly took over iTunes ranking in on the 'Apple Music Best of the Week' playlist. "Breathing Lightning" offers big hooks and harmonies intertwined with crunching guitar parts - it's Anthrax at their finest - and they're now ready to come out swinging with the new album.
A preview video for the song "Breathing Lightning" is available for viewing - but to download the full song for yourself click here to take you to iTunes. The tune "Evil Twin" the forthcoming album is also available for purchase.
Beginning tomorrow night, these guys will be back to doing what they do best - steamrolling across the globe and dominating every stage they set their feet upon. Heading out with their good friends, Lamb of God, the tour will run through the middle of February, and then Anthrax will be heading over to South America in March with Iron Maiden.
