Anthrax continue 40th anniversary series with Spreading The Disease

Anthrax continue their 40th anniversary video series with a look at their second studio album, 1985’s “Spreading The Disease.”

Produced by Carl Canedy, the set – which followed the “Armed And Dangerous” EP and saw new singer Joey Belladonna added to the lineup – earned favorable reviews and the band’s first US chart position when it peaked at No. 113 on the Billboard 200.

“Spreading The Disease” was supported by the single and music video for the track, “Madhouse.”

Anthrax will mark their official 40th anniversary on July 18.

The group recently launched the new 11-week video series, which sees testimonials by former band members, fellow musicians, colleagues, and music industry veterans sharing behind-the-scenes stories of working with the band and what Anthrax's legacy has meant through the years; among the fellow rockers featured are Dave Grohl, Dave Mustaine, Henry Rollins, Rob Zombie, Robert Trujillo, Slash, Tom Morello and more.

Anthrax will celebrate turning 40 with a very special livestream performance on Friday, July 16 that will see the band deliver a deep cuts set that will pull from their entire career-spanning catalog; all details, including ticketing information, will be announced shortly.
