Anthrax announce album reissues

Anthrax will reissue a pair of albums – 2003’s “We've Come For You All” and 2004’s “The Greater Of Two Evils” – on December 22.

The band’s ninth album, “We’ve Come For You All” was the band’s first with Rob Caggiano on lead guitar and their final original studio release with vocalist John Bush. Produced by Caggiano, the set featured guest appearances by Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell and The Who vocalist Roger Daltrey; the project reached No. 122 on the US Billboard 200.

The compilation record “The Greater Of Two Evils” delivers fourteen songs from the group’s early era that were initially released between 1984 and 1990. Originally sung by Neil Turbin and Joey Belladonna, the tunes were selected via a fan vote and re-recorded live in the studio with Bush on vocals.

The 2017 reissue sees the two albums available in a 2CD package, as well as individually on limited-edition gatefold vinyl.

The reissues follow the December 12 release of guitarist Scott Ian’s new book, “Access All Areas: Stories From A Hard Rock Life.”

Ian recounts his craziest rock stories as he shares tales of humor, excess, fun, debauchery, food, booze, and mayhem from his many years on the road.

Fans will also learn of the Anthrax co-founder’s encounters with fellow rockers like David Lee Roth, Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister, Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo, Pantera legend Dimebag Darrell, Slayer, and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, among others.

“Access All Areas” follow’s Ian’s 2014 memoir, “I’m The Man: The Official Story Of Anthrax”, which detailed Ian’s life growing up in Queens, NY, discovering rock and roll, and forming the thrash metal pioneers in 1981.
