Since the September, 2011 release of Worship Music, six-time Grammy-nominated Anthrax has experienced a tremendous comeback.  “Classic era” vocalist Joey Belladonna rejoined the lineup in the Spring of 2010, fronting for the band on The Big Four shows across Europe – Anthrax, along with Metalllica, Slayer and Megadeth – the four bands that defined the speed/thrash metal genre.  

Worship Music, the band’s first studio album in eight years and the first with Belladonna since 1990, was released the day after Anthrax played a home-town concert at New York’s Yankee Stadium with The Big Four.  Press and VIPs called it “the metal album of the year.”  In 2012, Anthrax became the first metal band to have its music played on Mars when its “Got The Time” was chosen by NASA to wake up the Mars Rover.  The band is in the final stages of recording the follow up to Worship Music that is expected out in early 2016.  According to Benante, the new songs are “aggressive and thrashy.  Anyone who liked ‘Worship Music’ should love the new album.”
