This month Anthrax will hit the road once again in support of their 2016 album For All Kings and they will be joined by co-headliners Killswitch Engage.  I’ve never seen Killswitch Engage and while I would love to see them with more “classic” acts on this bill, I love that Anthrax will be exposing their legendary brand of Thrash metal to a younger audience.  The bands themselves are equally as excited about the tour:

“Anthrax and Killswitch will be a really good blend for fans,” said Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. “We both play metal, but we play two different forms of the genre. I think fans of both bands are in for a ‘Total Explosion of the Senses.’” Added bassist Frank Bello, “This Anthrax/KSE tour is a powerful ball of energy ready to unleash the metal in the U.S.”

“Anthrax and Killswitch — KillThrax! Holy crap!,” continues guitarist Scott Ian. “I am so excited about these upcoming shows with our old friends Killswitch Engage. Get out your pit pants and start stretching now for all the glorious action and fun!”

Killswitch singer Jesse Leach echoed Anthrax’s enthusiasm about the upcoming trek, saying, “We are so stoked to tour with thrash legends Anthrax! We are sure this will bring a powerhouse of a live show with the combination of both bands. This is, hands down, the most excited we’ve been to tour alongside a band in a long while. This will be one you won’t want to miss. KillThrax is coming for you!!!!”
