Anthrax release 2nd bourbon

Anthrax have introduced another limited-edition bourbon to the market.

Last year they released their Indians whiskey, named after the track on their 1987 album Among The Living. Now Anthrax have teamed up with Knob Creek for another bottling – this time called The Devil You Know, the title of a song from 2011’s Worship Music.

Mainman Scott Ian says: “If we find something we really like and that we actually drink ourselves, we think maybe our fans might like it too, so we want to make it available for them.

“We really enjoyed Indians, and obviously our fans did as well as it sold out really quickly.”

The Whiskey Wash report the band chose two barrels for the bourbon and each bottle comes with a card signed by the group.

It’s available to buy in the US from the Atlantic City Bottle Company for $59.

The group are working on the follow-up to Worship Music, with Ian recently stating they wouldn’t be rushed into releasing it. Anthrax have a number of live dates scheduled for this year, including a UK winter tour with Slayer.
