ANTHRAX’S NEW LYRIC VIDEO FOR “SUZERAIN”

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.”

CO-HEADLINE SPRING 2017 NORTH AMERICAN TOUR “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!”

ANTHRAX WRAPS UP ITS 35TH ANNIVERSARY YEAR WITH A RECORD STORE DAY RELEASE, ACOUSTIC TRACK AT RADIO, AND A SPECIAL APPEARANCE AT NEW YORK’S EPIPHONE REVOLVER MUSIC AWARDS

LOS ANGELES, CA – Monday, November 21, 2017 — Twenty-sixteen has been a banner year for thrash masters ANTHRAX: the February 2016 release of its critically-acclaimed 11th studio album For All Kings (Megaforce), two collaborations with director Jack Bennett for the grizzly music videos “Blood Eagle Wings” and “Monster At The End,” a “Late Night with Seth Meyers” appearance that paired the band with the iconic Robert De Niro, and sharing stages with bands like Slayer, Iron Maiden, Slipknot, Lamb of God, and Avenged Sevenfold.

But the celebrations are not done yet.

In support of Black Friday’s Record Store Day (November 25), Anthrax will release a limited-edition 7-inch vinyl single (Megaforce) for the tracks “Monster At The End” and “Vice of the People,” the latter previously released only in Japan as a bonus track and being made available in North America for the first time.

In addition, an acoustic version of the band’s song “Breathing Lightning,” also on the For All Kings track listing, has just gone to radio. The song was performed and recorded at a special in-studio session at El Paso’s rock radio station KLAQ-FM on October 27, the final date of Anthrax’s recent North American tour with fellow Big Four members Slayer.

Anthrax – Joey Belladonna/vocals, Frank Bello/bass, Scott Ian/guitar, Charlie Benante/drums and Jonathan Donais/guitar – will head to New York next month to co-headline (with another Big Four alumni, Megadeth) the 2016 Epiphone Revolver Music Awards on Tuesday, December 13.

As Benante put it, “Anthrax looks forward to blowing the roof off of the Revolver Awards and making metal GREAT again.”

It’s rare that a career gets a second shot, let alone a whole second act, but then ANTHRAX isn’t your average band. Formed in New York in 1981, the group that would go on to sell over ten million records and become the living embodiment of America’s hi-top wearing, riff-spitting, ear-thrashing answer to the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal has undergone not one, but two complete eras – but that isn’t their real achievement. More than the group who let a fledgling METALLICA crash on their studio floor in 1983, who became a lightning rod for geekdom by immortalizing Judge Dredd with ‘I Am The Law’ in 1987, who enthusiastically raised a middle finger to the critics and unimaginative fans alike by collaborating with rappers PUBLIC ENEMY in 1991, and who – in 2011 with the release of »Worship Music« – proved that classic albums aren’t a bygone concept, the story of ANTHRAX is one of gritty determination in the face of outrageous odds.
