ANTHRAX Announces Tour
With Lamb of God, Lacuna Coil & E Town Concrete
Having caused quite a rumble overseas during their headline tour & along the major festival circuit, ANTHRAX is primed to return to the USA. As a way to acknowledge the great new metal bands emerging from the world of independent labels, ANTHRAX is launching "Taking the Music Back 2003" on July 29 in San Diego.
Anthrax will be touring in support of the critically-lauded release 'We've Come for You All'. Support on this tour will be split among bands that ANTHRAX feels are the crux of a new wave of Heavy Metal. The first leg (July 29-August 13) will feature Lamb of God and E Town Concrete. August 14 through August 29 will feature Lacuna Coil and E Town Concrete. ANTHRAX hopes that the success of this tour will lead to further opportunities to introduce new independent metal bands to the masses.
Combining haunting melody with ANTHRAX's trademark heavy groove riffs, We've Come for You All 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 unstable American metal climate:
"Anthrax have come back in a big way!" ~ Circus Magazine
"A 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
"triumphant; bludgeoning intensity;" ~ Boston Phoenix
The video for the single "Safe Home" is currently in rotation on all the major networks and features a cameo appearance by actor Keanu Reeves, a longtime ANTHRAX fan.
