ANTHRAX - WORSHIP MUSIC COVER ART UNVEILED

ANTHRAX - WORSHIP MUSIC COVER ART UNVEILED - 2011-07-13

2011-07-13 - The long drought is officially over. For all of those Anthrax fans who have been waiting for the band to finally release new music, "Fight 'em 'Til You Can't," the first track available from the upcoming album Worship Music, has just gone on sale at iTunes. Worship Music is the first new studio album from Anthrax in eight years, and the first with vocalist Joey Belladonna since 1990's Persistence of Time. What a way for the band to celebrate its 30th anniversary.

The "classic Anthrax-sounding" "Fight 'em 'Til You Can't" is a song about killing zombies, and is the one new track that Anthrax - Belladonna, guitarists Scott Ian and Rob Caggiano, drummer Charlie Benante and bassist Frank Bello - has played live since they Belladonna rejoined the line-up a year ago. Anthrax offered the track as a free download last month, and fan comments in chat rooms have been overwhelmingly ecstatic.

In addition, Anthrax is revealing the CD cover artwork for Worship Music. Renowned comic book artist Alex Ross, who has worked with Marvel Comics and DC Comics and is known for his "Marvels," "Kingdom Come," and "Astro City" illustrations, created the original painting for the cover. Ross also did the original artwork for Anthrax's We've Come For You All and Music of Mass Destruction albums.

The early feedback from press on Worship Music has also been simply stellar: Alexander Milas, Editor of Metal Hammer called the album "a riff-sh*tting, fire-breathing, doubt-crushing monster of a record. Welcome back, boys!," while VH1/That Metal Show's Eddie Trunk said, "This album is f*cking amazing! Metal album of the year so far! Congratulations. Just killer."

Anthrax will play the Heavy T.O. Festival in Toronto on July 23, and the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal on July 24.
