ANTHRAX And BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Announce Summer 2022 North American Tour


This summer, ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY will bring some of the finest thrash and heavy metal to 24 North American cities when they kick off a five-week tour on Tuesday, July 26 at Van Buren in Phoenix, Arizona, wrapping in Philadelphia at the Fillmore on Sunday, August 28.

Both bands will play headline sets. HATEBREED, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Perseverance album, will be special guest.

Citi is the official card of the ANTHRAX and BLACK LABEL SOCIETY tour. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning Monday, April 18, at 12 p.m. ET until Thursday, April 21 at 10 p.m. local time through the Citi Entertainment program.

ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian comments: “Zakk [Wylde] has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988. We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 — the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got f*cking HATEBREED with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road.”

Zakk says: “ANTHRAX is one of The BESTEST LEGENDARY METAL/THRASH BANDS of ALL TIME — I have been buds with SCOTTY, CHARLIE, FRANKIE & JOEY for over 30 years and they are some of the BESTEST people you will meet. JON is The BESTEST new addition ANTHRAX could ask for — HATEBREED are The BESTEST HARDCORE/EXTREME METAL band & BESTEST friends w/ANTHRAX & BLACK LABEL SOCIETY. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & HATEBREED TOUR is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!”

HATEBREED‘s Jamey Jasta added: “Listen up! It’s gonna be a hot summer! ANTHRAXBLS, and HATEBREED will be on your case, in your face, and ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit.”
