It’s on! Anthrax fans have been waiting and the band is providing us with some big news concerning their next album. In the video above, you’ll find an album teaser that reveals the new album title and release date.
The disc is titled For All Kings and it’s set for a Feb. 26 street date. The band recently revealed the new single “Evil Twin” and they’re currently on tour in Europe with Slayer in advance of the new album.
Drummer Charlie Benante is missing the first few weeks of the run, dealing with continued issues relating to the surgery he underwent for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome a while back. The drummer says he’s been dealing with pain and numbness and after playing for a few weeks, he realized he wasn’t able to deliver the intensity needed for an Anthrax show. So he’s resting up a bit before joining Anthrax for the last couple of weeks of touring overseas.
However, though the drummer does intend to join the band later in the run, he revealed that his time stateside will be put to good use. In his statement on the matter, he revealed that he’s been actively involved in coming up for the artwork for the new album and he’s been assisting in putting together the special Anthrax edition of their Spreading the Disease 30th anniversary reissue.
