Anthrax record Among The Living as 40th anniversary series continues

Anthrax and legendary producer Eddie Kramer head to Miami, FL and Compass Point, Bahamas to record the band’s third album, 1987’s “Among The Living”, as the group’s 40th anniversary video series continues.

Launched with the singles “I Am The Law” and “Indians”, the record moved Anthrax from being a club band to one that played arenas as their reputation grew as one of the Big 4 thrash bands of the genre, alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Slayer.

“Among The Living” earned Anthrax their second US Gold record for sales of 500,000 copies while peaking at No. 62 on the Billboard 200.

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.
