Someone once said that “anything worth doing is worth doing twice.” For metalheads that’s happening early in 2023 with a brand-new round of some of the finest thrash and heavy metal to grace North American stages.
Co-headliners Anthrax and Black Label Society, who tore through the country last summer are heading back on the road for 25 dates starting this week, with both bands playing headline sets. Joining Anthrax and Black Label Society as special guests on this run will be Northern California’s thrash metal gods, Exodus.
This tour will take the bands to different markets than last summer, and the multi-Gold and Platinum, card-carrying member of the Big Four, six-time GRAMMY-nominated Anthrax looks forward to continuing the celebration of its landmark 40th anniversary (now in its 41st year) with fans. According to the band, “We are so pumped to be hitting the road again with Black Label Society. We had such a great time when we toured with them earlier this year, that we had talked about doing it again when we were still on the road together. And, having the guys from Exodus on the bill as Special Guest, will definitely make this a tour not to miss.”
Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde has said, “ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME – I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 3O years & they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & EXODUS TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!”
“Exodus are super stoked to announce that we will be touring with Anthrax and Black Label Society,” said the band’s Gary Holt. “Touring with our long-time friends in Anthrax is always an epic good time, and now we get to tour with BLS and watch Zakk and company rip it up nightly too! Going to be awesome and we will be bringing our unique brand of audio violence to every city! Let the metal roll!”
