Listen To ANTHRAX's Cover Of BOSTON's "Smokin"!

'Anthems', Anthrax's long-awaited, eight-track EP that pays tribute to the classic songs by some of Anthrax's favorite bands from the 1970s, will be released in North America on March 19 (MRI/Megaforce), and on March 22 in Europe (Nuclear Blast). The track listing for 'Anthems' features Rush's "Anthem," Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak," "TNT" by AC/DC, Boston's "Smokin'," "Big Eyes" by Cheap Trick, Journey's "Keep on Runnin," as well as the album version and a special remix of Anthrax's "Crawl" from the band's critically-acclaimed 2011 album 'Worship Music'. 

Right now, you can crank Anthrax's cover of BOSTON's song "Smokin":

The EP will be available on CD as well as digitally via iTunes and other online retailers. In addition to the cover art for 'Anthems', Benante and artist Stephen Thompson have subtly redesigned each track's original album cover art to "Anthrax" it. The 'Anthems' EP will first be housed in one of the "re-imagined" digipak covers, and then inserted inside the main CD cover sleeve. The main cover sleeve has been designed in such a way so fans will be able to see which one of the six "re-imagined" covers is inside.

'Anthems' was produced by Anthrax, Jay Ruston and the bands former guitarist Rob Caggiano, and recorded for the most part throughout 2012 literally all over the world: at Benante's home studio, in Ruston's New York studio, on the band's tour bus while on last summer's Mayhem Tour, in hotel rooms, and backstage at their Berlin show last December.

Don't forget that ANTHRAX - Belladonna/vocals, Benante/drums, Scott Ian/guitar and Frank Bello/bass - will hit the road in support 'Anthems' on February 16 with dates in India and Australia, and then return to North America to headline the Metal Alliance Tour that kicks off March 22 in California. For all of these dates, Anthrax will be joined by Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais.

Once again, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante is sitting out during his bands live performances. It has been confirmed that Benante did not travel with the band due to personal issues, Jon Dette (former SLAYER drummer) is replacing Benante during ANTHRAX's Australian tour. "Charlie is dealing with personal issues right now and can't leave the country", commented Scott Ian. "He's really bummed about not being able to head down there."

Additionally, the band will not be performing with guitarist Rob Caggiano, who left the band to join VOLBEAT (More info HERE)! He was temporarily replaced by Jon Donais from SHADOWS FALL.

Benante is expected to be back with ANTHRAX during this year's Metal Alliance tour, which they will be headlining (tour dates below).

Former IRON MAIDEN Drummer Clive Burr Passes Away (RIP)

Major bummer! IRON MAIDEN have confirmed the death of their former drummer Clive Burr. Our condolences go out to his family, friends, fans, and everyone at the MAIDEN camp. A statement from MAIDEN follows:

"We are deeply saddened to report that Clive Burr passed away last night. He had suffered poor health for many years after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and died peacefully in his sleep at home.

Steve Harris said “This is terribly sad news. Clive was a very old friend of all of us. He was a wonderful person and an amazing drummer who made a valuable contribution to Maiden in the early days when we were starting out. This is a sad day for everyone in the band and those around him and our thoughts and condolences are with his partner Mimi and family at this time."

Bruce Dickinson adds “I first met Clive when he was leaving Samson and joining Iron Maiden. He was a great guy and a man who really lived his life to the full. Even during the darkest days of his M.S., Clive never lost his sense of humour or irreverence. This is a terribly sad day and all our thoughts are with Mimi and the family”

As Maiden fans all know, Clive joined Maiden in 1979 and performed on the first three albums Iron Maiden (1980), Killers (1981) and The Number Of The Beast (1982).

Prior to that he was a member of Samson, the band Bruce fronted before he too joined Maiden.

ROCK IN PEACE Mr. Burr, you will be deeply missed!

A VOLBEAT Fan Dies At The Bands Concert In Lubbock, Texas - Details Available!

This is very sad. According to KCBD, a VOLBEAT fan passed away during the band's show in Lubbock, Texas. This is what happened:
Jubal Colvin (39), was denied entry to the show at the Lonestar Event Center. After being denied entry, he allegedly jumped a fence and entered the premises. As a result, some security guards attempted to remove him from the venue, but he ran away and ended up in a restricted area that was fenced off. According to Polica, he then fell approximately 20 feet from the hillside and struck his head on the concrete covered ground.

First responders gave Colvin CPR on the scene, and he was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Wes Nessman of FMX, which promoted the concert, said that Colvin "appeared to be drunk or had been drinking and was stopped at security for having a knife. At some point he got agitated and threw the knife at security and started running. He was told to stop several times by security and Police. He ran past several fences and barricades before either running off the roof or attempting to jump roof to roof.

"This was on a side of the property that is NEVER used and hasn't been used in about six years. This man was running from officials in a clearly off limits area."

Our condolences go out to Colvin's family and friends.
