Anthrax have confirmed a 2022 European tour. Still celebrating its 40-year tenure as one of music’s premier thrash metal bands, Anthrax are crossing the pond for the first time since the summer of 2019. Kicking off on September 27, 2022 in Birmingham, England, the band will play 27 dates in 15 countries, wrapping up in Zurich, Switzerland on November 5. Crossover thrash band Municipal Waste will support on all dates.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, August 20 at 10AM BST, 11AM CET via www.anthrax.com.

“It sure has been a long time since we rock ‘n’ rolled in the UK and Europe,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante, “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!!!”

On this tour, fans can expect Anthrax – Joey Belladonna/vocals, Scott Ian/rhythm guitar, Frank Bello/bass, Charlie Benante/drums, and Jon Donais/guitar – to draw from all four decades – fan favorite and deep cuts – for their nightly setlist.

“There’s just something special about Europe,” said Belladonna. “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.”

Anthrax are currently working on a new album. Their last outing was 2016’s For All Kings. The album performed well commercially, charting at No. 9 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on Billboard Top Rock Albums.
