Anthrax have announced that a new live DVD is on its way.
Titled Kings Among Scotland, it was recorded at the band’s sold-out show at Glasgow’s Barrowland Ballroom back in February. It’s set for release on April 27.
Along with the two-hour live set from the night, the package also features interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, along with clips from the tour bus and in hotels.
Each band member will also give a rundown on the gear they used on the tour, which featured material from their latest album For All Kings and their classic 1987 record Among The Living.
Anthrax bassist Frank Bello says: “Playing for our friends at the Barrowlands has always been very special. We all know we’re going to get together and have an insanely great time, and we think that incredible interaction and energy really comes through on this video.”
Guitarist Scott Ian, who previously praised their Glasgow fanbase, adds: “It was a pretty intense show – especially when the crowd was so insane, the floor actually started moving up and down.”
Drummer Charlie Benante admits playing Among The Living live was “a challenge” for all of the band, and continues: “We’ve played a number of that album’s songs in our shows over the years, but not all of them, and playing a song in a recording studio is not the same as playing it live on stage.
“We put in a lot of time to get all of the tracks down perfectly. And I’ll tell you, after we finished that set, as arduous as it was, we all felt a sense of exhilaration, like we could go out and do it again.”
A full list of contents for Kings Among Scotland will be revealed in due course, while the cover art can be seen below.
Anthrax will return to the road in January for a run of North American dates with Killswitch Engage and Havok.
