Thrashers Anthrax will celebrate their 40th anniversary this summer with a headlining U.S. tour. Supporting them on the trek will be Black Label Society and Hatebreed. Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said of the run:

Zakk has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands.

Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 — the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”

Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde offered:

Anthrax is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME — I have been buds with ScottyCharlieFrankie & Joey for over 30 years and they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. Jon is The BESTEST new addition Anthrax could ask for — Hatebreed are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/Anthrax & Black Label Society. The Anthrax + Black Label Society & Hatebreed tour is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!”

Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta comments:

“Listen up! It’s gonna be a hot summer! AnthraxBLS, and Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face, and ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit.”
