Anthrax Announce KillThrax II Tour

Metalcore masterminds Killswitch Engage and legendary thrash/metal masters Anthrax have announced details of their extensive KillThrax II tour: a twenty-nine-city trek around North America early in 2018 presented by SiriusXM.

The two bands already covered much of North American on their much-acclaimed KillThrax tour. Their new co-headlining jaunt kicks off on 25 January 2018 in Montreal, Canada and will zig-zag across the continent to wind up in Portland, Maine on 4 March. Havok will serve as the opening act for the entire tour.

“After playing so many amazing shows last year with our friends Killswitch Engage, I’m psyched for round two of KillThrax,” Anthrax bassist Frank Bello said, while the band’s drummer Charlie Benante added: “The shows were great, the audiences were great, and we all felt great about the whole thing, so why not do it again?”

“We are looking forward to the next leg of the KillThrax tour,” said Killswitch Engage singer Jesse Leach. “We had a blast on the first one and we enjoyed sharing the stage with the humble legends Anthrax! There is such a synergy between the two bands and a certain unity that is infectious, so it was a no-brainer to put this package back together and hit the road. It’s an honour and we are excited for these shows, the fans, and the good times! KillThrax is gearing up for round two, so let’s keep the party rolling!”

As with the inaugural KillThrax tour, Killswitch Engage and Anthrax will rotate the show’s closing slot on KillThrax II. Fans can also expect a night of high energy, musical ferocity and sheer intensity, and what one reviewer called “an incredible night of live music with heavy hitters that provided hours of escape into metal bliss.”
