Anthrax, Black Label Society and Hatebreed to Play Canada on Summer Tour

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Apr 18, 2022

Continuing to celebrate their 40th anniversary, thrash metal legends Anthrax have announced a North American summer tour alongside Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society.

In July and August, the two heavy bands will play 24 dates between Canada and the US, with support on select stops from Hatebreed.

Two of those dates come in Canada. Towards the end of the run, the three-band bill will roll through Toronto's History on August 23, ahead of a date at Amphitheatre Cogeco in Trois-Rivières, QC, on August 24.

Tickets for all dates go on sale to the general public April 22 at 10 a.m. local time, with further details available through Anthrax's official website. Find the complete tour itinerary below.

In a statement, Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said he's expecting each stop to be "the night of 1000 crushing riffs," sharing, "Zakk has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988 ... 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 ... 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."

Recently, Ian has been playing with Mr. Bungle, while Hatebreed delivered Weight of False Self in 2020. This year, the Jamey Jasta-led outfit are celebrating 20 years of their sophomore LP Perseverance.
