ANTHRAX Rumored To Be Playing ‘Secret’ Show Day Before Album Release

ANTHRAX is rumored to be planning a “surprise” concert either at New York City’s Best Buy Theater or at an as-yet-undisclosed Best Buy store location on September 12, the day before the band’s new album, “Worship Music”, is scheduled to be released in North America. The rumor was started by ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian who posted this link on his Facebook pageearlier today (Wednesday, August 10) with the text “These guys rule!!!”

“The Devil You Know”, a brand new song from ANTHRAX, was released digitally this past Tuesday, August 8. The track, which was premiered on last Friday’s (August 5) edition of Eddie Trunk‘s “Friday Night Rocks” radio show on New York’s Q104.3 FM, was described by ANTHRAX guitarist Rob Caggiano in a recent interview as “a cross between ‘Caught In A Mosh’ and an AC/DC song, like ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’. It’s got that thrashy rock ‘n’ roll vibe to it, which I love.”

“The Devil You Know” comes off ANTHRAX‘s long-awaited new album, “Worship Music”, which will be released in the U.S. on September 13 via Megaforce Records (one day earlier in Europe through Nuclear Blast Records). The band’s first studio release in eight years marks the return of vocalist Joey Belladonna, whose last studio work with the group was 1990’s “Persistence Of Time”.

The Omega Order is offering an exclusive pre-order bundle for “Worship Music”, featuring the new CD; “Fistful Of Metal” triple 10-inch picture discs; and an ANTHRAX LP slipmat (only available in this bundle).
