Anthrax To Release New Live Album/Film Featuring Their 40th Anniversary Livestream Concert

Anthrax will be releasing a new live album/film titled “Anthrax XL” on July 15. The effort will feature the band’s 40th anniversary livestream concert, which was held at The Den in Los Angeles, CA on July 16, 2021.

The group shared more information on the set:

“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 and Digital (Megaforce). “Anthrax XL” will also have a European Digital release on July 15 (Nuclear Blast), followed by a Blu-Ray release later this year.”

Drummer Charlie Benante also commented:

“Forty years doesn’t feel like 40 years. Sometimes I have to remind myself about how long this strange trip has been. I enjoy playing these songs, they’re such a huge part of my life, and I know for a lot of our fans, they play a big part in theirs as well.”

Bassist Frank Bello continued:

“For me, each song was like reading through a scrapbook of my life and the band’s career. Specifically, ‘Madhouse,’ one of my first recordings with the band, and then to where we are now with ‘Blood Eagle Wings.’ What a great ride it’s been, I’m very grateful.”

Vocalist Joey Belladonna added:

“Even though we were performing in a studio with just the crew there, we played that set like we were in front of 50,000 screaming fans. I felt like we made a full-on connection with everyone watching from their homes or wherever, and that they connected with us. It was quite an intense experience.”

Scott Ian Says Anthrax’s New Album “Should” Be Released In 2023

During a new interview with Kyle Meredith, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian offered a brief update on the band’s new album. According to him, the effort “should” be released in 2023.

Ian said the following while discussing Anthrax’s upcoming tour with Black Label Society and Hatebreed:

“We didn’t get to tour [for our actual 40th anniversary in 2021], so we’re doing the 40th-anniversary tour in our 41st year. [Laughs] Obviously, we couldn’t go out last year and do it when we wanted to, so we’ve got this summer run coming up with BLACK LABEL [SOCIETY] and HATEBREED. And we’re calling that part of our 40th anniversary. We’ve got 40th-anniversary dates in Europe after that, in the fall. And who knows? I like to think this U.S. run with BLACK LABEL is gonna do pretty well, and maybe we get to do a second run of those dates at some point early next year. And then I’m sure next year at some point there should be a [new ANTHRAX] record, depending on when we get in the studio.

So, yeah, it’s all starting to ramp up again. Fingers crossed it all doesn’t get thrown in the garbage. But I’m being very optimistic that things are moving forward and everyone can go back to work — meaning we get to go play shows again. And I’m very excited about that.”

Anthrax’s Scott Ian commented:

“Zakk [Wylde] has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 — the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”

Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde continued:

“ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME — I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 30 years and they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for — HATEBREED are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/ANTHRAX & BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & HATEBREED TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!”

Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta added:

“Listen up! It’s gonna be a hot summer! Anthrax, BLS, and Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face, and ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit.”
