To celebrate the creative success and critical acclaim of the band’s 2011 album, Worship Music, Anthrax are planning on releasing a special EP due out in September of this year.
During a recent interview with Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante, told Loudwire that the band is currently working on an EP of cover songs. It will pay tribute to some of Anthrax’s favorite bands, more specifically, bands from the 1970s.
“To commemorate the first year of Worship Music being out, we’re putting together a little companion EP with some fun s–t on it,” says Benante. “It started out as what I call The ’70s EP. It’s made up of some cover songs from our favorite bands, consisting of Rush, Thin Lizzy, Boston, Journey … We’re still working on it now, but I think it’s gonna be really cool.”
Anthrax have already covered God Save the Queen by the Sex Pistols, Black Sabbath‘s Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and numerous KISS songs such as She and Love Her All I Can.
