Anthrax – Anthems

Anthrax releases a new batch of classic — but not necessarily classic Anthrax — music that’s coming from the band.  Anthem is six classic rock covers Anthrax recorded during sessions for 2011’s “Worship Music,” the group’s first new album in eight years and first with singer Joey Belladonna since 1990.

The group recently returned to the studio to finish up versions of Rush’s “Anthem,” Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak,” AC/DC’s “TNT,” Boston’s “Smokin’,” Cheap Trick’s “Big Eyes” and Journey’s “Keep on Runnin’,” will all appear on the EP along with a remix of “Crawl” from 2011’s Worship Music.
