Anthrax will be heading overseas for a tour of the UK and Europe to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Joining them in the festivities will be crossover thrashers Municipal Waste. Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante said of the upcoming trek:

“It sure has been a long time since we rock’n’rolled in the UK and Europe, but we’re coming back soon to bring the noise to all of you guys. Being that we can’t get over there until 2022, we’re going to make sure that every show will be an eventful one. We won’t just be playing four decades of songs to celebrate our ongoing 40th anniversary – hey, we’ll be giving YOU some history! – but we just might have some brand new ones for you as well. Can’t wait to see all your happy, smiling faces!!!”

Singer Joey Belladonna adds:

“There’s just something special about Europe. Our fans there have always had a full-fledged excitement about our shows, and I enjoy performing more than anyone can imagine, so we’re really looking forward to this tour.”
