ANTHRAX Films Video for
Major North American Tour on the Horizon
Heavy Metal icons ANTHRAX recently wrapped a widely successful US tour to promote their highly anticipated new release We've Come for You All, but they are not resting on laurels. During the tour, the band managed to shoot and compile a video for the poignant single "Safe Home" at the House of Blues in Chicago.
The video also features a special guest appearance by The Matrix film star, Keanu Reeves. Reeves, a longtime Anthrax fan, was the band's special guest at the sold-out Los Angeles tour closer.
Fans can check out the debut of "Safe Home" at Anthrax.com in the very near future. The video is also being immediately serviced to MTV, MTV2, Fuse, and MuchMusic for airplay consideration. Given the infectious nature of the track, airplay should be imminent.
We've Come for You All has been selling extremely well since its May 6 release, even debuting in the Billboard Top 200. Marriaging haunting melody with ANTHRAX's trademark heavy groove riffs, the album features guest performances by The Who's Roger Daltrey, Pantera's Dimebag Darrell, and E Town Concrete's Anthony Martini. Press immediately welcomed ANTHRAX's breath of fresh air in the stale American metal climate:
"Anthrax have come back in a big way!" ~ Circus Magazine
"Are furiously dynamic and infectious slab of thrash/hard rock, one killer comeback." ~ Revolver Magazine
"You want metal the way it was meant to be played? You got it." ~ Drum! Magazine
ANTHRAX is currently touring Europe & performing the major festivals, but is planning a major North American trek beginning in August 2004.
