Anthrax have scheduled a further 20 dates on their Among The Living 30th anniversary tour in 2017.

The dates follow on from their UK leg next February, with dates planned into the middle of March. Anthrax’s shows will be based around their 1987 album Among The Living – along with a string of fan favourites and songs from their latest album For All Kings.

Speaking about the UK leg of the tour, guitarist Scott Ian said: “Finally! We’ve been looking forward to headlining in the UK for so long. We have a killer set planned – new stuff, old favourites, deep tracks and Among The Living front to back.

“You’d better start getting in shape now for the epic war dance. See you soon my friends.”

Anthrax have recruited British metal outfit The Raven Age as support.

Tickets go on sale at 10am local time on November 18 (Friday).
