That’s right folks Anthrax will be releasing an EP of covers to commemorate the one year anniversary of the release of “Worship Music.” It might not seem like something worth commemorating to the average fan but you have to think, that album was ten years in the making! It is definitely something worth celebrating. The following is what Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante had to say:
“To commemorate the first year of ‘Worship Music’ being out, we’re putting together a little companion EP with some fun s–t on it,” he said. “It started out as what I call ‘The ’70s EP.’ It’s made up of some cover songs from our favorite bands – consisting of Rush, Thin Lizzy, Boston, Journey… We’re still working on it now, but I think it’s gonna be really cool.”
Anthrax really has never let us done when it came to covers, even with there more obscure stuff. I can’t say that I am not excited for this because any new(ish) Anthrax material is good Anthrax material. You can expect to hear the band cover the following tracks:
AC/DC – TNT
Boston - Smokin’
Journey – Keep on Runnin’
Rush – Anthem
Fan can expect to hear Anthrax’s takes on AC/DC’s “T.N.T.,” Boston’s “Smokin’,” Journey’s “Keep on Runnin’” and Rush’s “Anthem.” The EP is due around September 13.
