Formed in Queens, NY in July of 1981, Anthrax are streaming a historical retrospective video series in the weeks leading up to the 40th anniversary livestream show; the project sees current and former bandmates and fellow rockers revisiting the group’s extensive career.

"I was a 17-year-old metal-head kid from Queens when I started this band," says Scott Ian. "I am a 57-year-old metal-head kid from Queens about to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this band. That means for 40 years, I've gotten to do exactly what I've wanted to do - and getting to do what I love and being a part of something so much bigger than myself has made the time, the unbelievable weight of 40 seems so light.

“It's been an amazing story so far, and I see 40 as a milestone that absolutely should be recognized and celebrated. Congratulations to us! I also see 40 as a stepping stone to the next chapter of Anthrax - we still have a lot to say and some killer riffs to unleash. I'm not going to say, ‘Here's to 40 more’ because nobody wants to see that (I'd be 97). How about, ‘Here's to at least ten more, and we'll go from there! Thank you for enabling me, my friends.’"
