There are an array of reasons why any music lover may favor thrash-masters Anthrax - but one reason that most will agree upon is how the band is simply incapable of putting on anything other than a stellar live show. Whether you've seen Anthrax live in person or experienced their concert performance via a DVD like the 2014 release Chile On Hell, it's pretty impossible to not be in awe of the well-oiled machine that is Anthrax live. And now Anthrax fans are going to get another example of just how insane yet tight-knit of a show this band regularly puts on with the release of a brand new live-in-concert DVD.
Aptly named "Kings Among Scotland," the band's forthcoming concert DVD will arrive in stores and online on April 27, 2018 via Megaforce Records. Filmed last Feb.15 at the band's sold-out concert in Glasgow, the two-hour long "Kings Among Scotland" includes the entire live show as well as interviews with the band, behind-the-scenes footage, and B-roll moments captured on the band's tour bus, backstage, and in hotels and more.
Performing fan-selected favorite Anthrax songs like "Madhouse," "Be All, End All," "Breathing Lightning," and "A.I.R.," as well as classics from their 1987 album Among The Living such as "Caught In A Mosh," "I Am the Law," "Indians," "Eflinikufesin (N.F.L.)," this show was too special to not have caught on film.
"It was a pretty intense show," explained Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian of the band's Glasgow concert, "especially when the crowd was so insane, the floor actually started moving up and down."

And never being a band that rests on their laurels, Anthrax will be burning up the rock and roll highway once again just after the New Year. Heading back out with Killswitch Engage for a second KILLTHRAX tour, they'll kick things off in Canada on Jan. 25 and snake around North American through March 4 where they wrap things up in Portland, ME. The first installment of the KILLTHRAX tour began in March of this year running into May, and fans of both bands couldn't be happier that another leg of this special tour has been added.
