  Anthrax Find Sanctuary, Plan Tour with Motorhead.

Contrary to previous reports that the new studio album from Anthrax would be released by ARTISTdirect, the band has indeed signed a new deal but it’s with Sanctuary Records. Below is the press released issued by the label this week announcing the album and an upcoming tour. 

ANTHRAX Releases 'WE'VE COME FOR YOU ALL' Through SANCTUARY RECORDS On May 6, 2003

First Single, "SAFE HOME,"  Hits Airwaves In April

Thrash metal innovators Anthrax have signed with Sanctuary Records Group and have set May 6, 2003, as the release day for 'We've Come for You All.'

'We've Come for You All' is the first new studio effort from vocalist John Bush, guitarist Scott Ian, bass guitarist Frank Bello, drummer Charlie Benante and new guitarist Rob Caggiano in five years. Special guests include The Who vocalist Roger Daltrey on "Taking the Music Back" and Pantera guitarist Dimebag Darrell on "Cadillac Rock Box" and "Strap It On." The album was co-produced by Anthrax and Scrap 60.

"It definitely sounds like Anthrax, and there are elements from our earlier albums. Creatively, we're on top of our game. We really pushed ourselves," says Benante. "In the late '80s, we were pigeonholed into just doing thrash metal. The past couple of years, we've decided to take more chances with our music. On this record, I handled the majority of the music. Scott wrote more lyrics than John this time around, and Frank came up with some really good melodies."

The official tracklisting for 'We've Come for You All' is: "Intro," "What Doesn't Die," "Superhero," "Refuse to Be Denied," "Safe Home," "Any Place But Here," "Nobody Knows Anything," "Strap It On," "Black Dahlia," "Cadillac Rock Box," "Taking the Music Back," "Crash," "Thinking About an End" and "We've Come for You All."

"The new album is all metal, but there are elements that explore other territories," says Benante. "For example, I'd describe 'Cadillac Rock Box' as Lynyrd Skynyrd-meets-1976/1977 Kiss."

"But it sounds like Anthrax," says Ian.

Renowned comic book artist Alex Ross created the distinctive, intentionally ambiguous cover art for 'We've Come for You All.'

"No one has ever gotten him to do an album cover before. Our webmaster suggested him and we e-mailed his agent. He has some of our records and we were thrilled when he said yes," Benante says. "I worked with him on the cover concept and it just grew. We're now actually thinking about doing a comic book based on this artwork, and our T-shirts will feature it too."

Ian added, "Alex has been my favorite artist for the last six or seven years, so to work with him on our artwork was such a huge thing for me."

Anthrax has always been a driving force in metal and their influence on music is more undeniable now than it has ever been. Albums like 'Spreading the Disease,' 'Among the Living,' 'Persistence of Time,' 'Sound of White Noise,' 'Stomp 442' and others showcased the band's supercharged energy and clever songwriting, which revealed a sense of humor without sacrificing the music's power and integrity.

And Anthrax didn't just kick down musical barriers, the band obliterated them. Starting with "I'm the Man" in 1986, and then in 1991, Anthrax teamed up with rap group Public Enemy on "Bring the Noise," a groundbreaking fusion of heavy metal and rap that directly influenced the likes of Rage Against the Machine and Limp Bizkit.

Anthrax will begin a European tour in March and a U.S. tour in May with Motorhead.
