ANCIENT BATTLES, FEUDAL OVERLORDS AND THE DEADLY GAME OF CHESS ILLUSTRATE ANTHRAX’S NEW LYRIC VIDEO FOR THE TRACK “SUZERAIN
noun: a feudal overlord or sovereign or a state exercising political control over a dependent state
LOS ANGELES, CA – Monday, December 19, 2016 — “Suzerain,” an intense and politically-charged track from Anthrax’s critically-acclaimed album For All Kings (2/16, Megaforce), is lyricist Scott Ian’s musings about a leader who would be so powerful that all nations, all people, would come under his benevolent authority, and in return, he would bring peace, happiness and prosperity to all of Earth.
“Mankind keep making the same mistakes over and over,” said Ian. “You’d think that after thousands of years of religious, economic and ideologic wars, we’d have figured out how to live with each other, but we haven’t. That’s what drew me to the idea for ‘Suzerain.'”
The “Suzerain” video incorporates the game of chess along with images of battles fought by ancient empires to illustrate imperial power. You can check out Anthrax’s new lyric video for “Suzerain” here:
Anthrax will hit the road in 2017 first with an appearance at the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, and then will lauch their “Among The Kings Tour,” starting with a 26-date UK/European tour, and seguing into the band’s North American co-headline tour with Killswitch Engage, “Killthrax.”
“Anthrax and Killswitch will be a really good blend for fans,” said Anthrax’s 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 the band’s 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!,” said 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!”
