Thrash titans Anthrax and Testament--who haven't toured together in more than a decade--are set to co-headline a U.S. tour beginning Friday, October 14 with a stop at Los Angeles’ CLUB NOKIA set for Saturday, October 22. Anthrax will close all shows and Death Angel will open. Tickets go on sale Saturday, September 10th at 10 AM and are $29.50 for General Admission tickets if purchased in advance and $33 the day of the show (if available). VIP Pit and VIP Balcony tickets are $45.
Anthrax is touring in support of Worship Music, the band's first new studio album in eight years. The album took a challenging four years to make and according to guitarist Scott Ian, "This record is filled with not just four years of our lives, but with our lifetime in the band. It encompasses it all, and when I listen to the record, I can hear all the energy and love and hate and pain and laughter that went into this.” Fittingly, Worship Music is set for a September 13 release date. With worldwide sales in excess of 10-million, 2011 sees Anthrax celebrating its 30th year as a band. Over those three decades, Anthrax has received multiple Gold and Platinum albums, multiple Grammy nominations, and a host of other accolades from the media, industry and fans.
