In 2016, Anthrax celebrated 35 years as a band, and released For All Kings, their 11th studio album, via Megaforce/Nuclear Blast. The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart, and #9 on the Top 200, becoming Anthrax’s highest-charting album in more than two decades.
Blasting out of that commercial success, Anthrax have been touring hard for the past two years, recently opening the farewell tour for their metal comrades in Slayer, and now doing the same for Lamb of God. Anthrax lit up The Fillmore Silver Spring on Monday in their tour with Lamb of God, and Paivi shot the show.
