Anthrax and Black Label Society have announced a co-headlining U.S. tour set.

The joint outing, which also features Hatebreed on the bill, will launch July 26 in Phoenix, and will wrap up August 28 in Philadelphia.

“[BLS frontman] Zakk [Wylde] has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988,” says Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. “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,” Ian adds. “Oh, and did I mention we’ve got f***ing Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs.”

Anthrax will be celebrating their 40th anniversary on the tour, while Black Label will be supporting their new album, 2021’s Doom Crew Inc.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 22, at 10 a.m. local time. For the full list of dates and all ticket info, visit Anthrax.com.
