July 18 2021 marked the 40th anniversary of thrash metal pioneers Anthrax.
The celebration began in May of last year and culminated on that July 16/17 with a global livestream event, shot at the Los Angeles soundstage/studio The Den. For two-plus hours, Anthrax performed an extensive set of hits and deep cuts pulled from their vast catalogue.
Today, Anthrax announces that the entire performance, plus never-before-seen rehearsal footage, and Scott Ian’s New York City “walking tour” pointing out the spots that played a role in Anthrax’s formation and history, will be released in North America on July 15 on Blu-Ray/CD/Digital (Megaforce). XL will also have a UK/European digital release on July 15 (Nuclear Blast), followed by a Blu-Ray release (inc. 2CD + 1Blu-Ray) on July 22. UK/European pre-orders for XL can be placed HERE
A very limited amount of stock will be available locally.
Also today, Anthrax serves up a taste of the XL celebration livestream with Aftershock, the Blu-Ray’s first single/video.
