Today, ANTHRAX releases ‘TheDevil You Know‘ live, the second “early taste” single/music video from the band’s 40th anniversary livestream concert, ‘XL‘. The release will be available in the UK/Europe digitally on July 15th (Nuclear Blast), followed by a Blu-Ray release (inc. 2CD + 1Blu-Ray) on July 22nd. It will be available in North America on Blu-Ray/CD/Digital on July 15th (Megaforce).
‘The Devil You Know‘ was the first official single released from the band’s highly-acclaimed 2011 album, Worship Music, and was a stand-out track with the media. Rolling Stone referred to it as “…a relentlessly heavy number…as aggressive and punishing as you would expect from the band, but with a touch of old school AC/DC swagger thrown in for good measure,” while Loudwire wrote that it was “addictive and propulsive…Scott unleashes what might be the riff of the year.”
ANTHRAX celebrated their 40th anniversary last year, on July 18th 2021, but due to Covid had to cancel their global touring plans, scheduled for the band to celebrate its milestone with their fans all around the world. While the band are about six months into their 41st year, the band – Joey Belladonna, Scott Ian, Frank Bello, Charlie Benante, and guitarist Jon Donais are due to finally head out on that global anniversary tour. In late July, ANTHRAX will kick off their 26-date co-headline North American tour with Black Label Society, joined by Hatebreed. They will then head to the UK and Europe in late September to headline a five-week run with MUNICIPAL WASTE. Tickets and VIP packages can be purchased at anthrax.com. All dates are below.
