LOS ANGELES, CA – Monday, December 5, 2011 — Following what can only be described as the Rock’n’Roll comeback story of 2011, Anthrax will kick off 2012 with round two of a U.S. co-headline tour with fellow thrash titans, Testament. The dozen-plus dates that come on the heels of the bands’ five-week Fall trek that packed venues from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, will kick off in Las Vegas on Sunday, January 22 and will take in some fifteen cities over a three-week period (dates listed below). Anthrax will close all shows and Death Angel will again be main support on all dates.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 9 and Saturday, December 10 at 10AM local time.

“The first leg of the tour with Testament and Death Angel was an amazing way to end a great year for Anthrax,” said Anthrax’s Scott Ian, “and it went above and beyond my expectations! Sold out shows, raging crowds and EPIC war dances! So we figured what better way to start 2012 than to continue this thrash-fest into the new year!!! Thank you all for giving us this privilege to come and play for you. See you soon!”

The first leg of the Anthrax-Testament co-headline jaunt marked the first time the two bands had toured together in more than a decade, and proved to be a rousing success with reviews such as, “This line-up of thrash metal masters is what most metal heads’ wet dreams are made of.” Minneapolis’ City Pages summed the show up this way: “Metal…is alive and well and will continue to be as long as Anthrax has anything to say about it.”
