Thrash legends Anthrax have announced that they will release a live DVD entitled Kings Among Scotland on April 27th, 2018 via Megaforce. Footage was recorded on February 15th of this year at the band’s sold-out show at Glasgow’s historic venue Barrowland Ballroom. The DVD will include the group’s full two-hour performance along with interviews, behind the scenes footage, and B-roll from the band’s tour bus, backstage, hotels, and more. Additionally, it will feature a special “gear rundown” from each member.
Bassist Frank Bello commented:
“Playing for our friends at the Barrowlands has always been very special. We all know we’re going to get together and have an insanely great time, and we think that incredible interaction and energy really comes through on this video.”
Guitarist Scott Ian added:
“It was pretty a intense show, especially when the crowd was so insane, the floor actually started moving up and down.”
Drummer Charlie Benante expressed:
“It was a challenge for all of us to play ‘Among The Living’ live. We’ve played a number of that album’s songs in our shows over the years, but not all of them, and playing a song in a recording studio is not the same as playing it live on stage. So we put in a lot of time to get all of the tracks down perfectly. And I’ll tell you, after we finished that set, as arduous as it was, we all felt a sense of exhiliration, like we could go out and do it again.”
Anthrax will be hitting the road once again to co-headline with Killswitch Engage for an epic sequel Killthrax II tour on January 25th. Check out the tour dates here.
