SCOTT IAN Says The New ANTHRAX Record Should Be Out In 2023

Depending on when they hit the studio.

Anthrax – Heavy Montreal 2019

Yes, Anthrax is going to release a follow-up to their For All Kings record from 2016. According to guitarist Scott Ian in an interview with Kyle Meredith, the band is planning on releasing a new record in 2023 depending on when they can hit the studio. Though first, Anthrax will hit the road this summer with Black Label Society and Hatebreed to celebrate the band's belated 40th birthday.

"We didn't get to tour [in 2021], so we're doing the 40th anniversary tour in our 41st year," said Ian. "Obviously, we couldn't go out last year and do it when we wanted to, so we've got this summer run coming up with Black Label [Society] and Hatebreed. And we're calling that part of our 40th anniversary. We've got 40th-anniversary dates in Europe after that, in the fall. And who knows? I like to think this U.S. run with Black Label [Society] is gonna do pretty well, and maybe we get to do a second run of those dates at some point early next year. And then I'm sure next year at some point there should be a record, depending on when we get in the studio."

We also recently spoke to Ian about the new record, which he said will very likely make Anthrax fans happy. As if it's possible for the band to disappoint, given their recent two albums.

"Not to make a weird comparison, but it's our third record back together with Joey. Actually, it's an odd comparison. I should just say it's our third album since our kind of our reboot in 2010 and our third album back in the day was Among the Living. I'm not saying that this is, because it's not Among the Living II in any sense, but I just think we have some great songs and there's like a fucking mountain of great riffs. I think people are going to be very happy."
