Anthrax and Testament announce 2012 tour dates

Good news if you missed Anthrax and Testament - they'll be continuing their run with additional tour dates together in 2012.

“The first leg of the tour with Testament and Death Angel was an amazing way to end a great year for Anthrax,” remarks Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian, “and it went above and beyond my expectations! Sold out shows, raging crowds and EPIC war dances! So, we figured what better way to start 2012 than to continue this thrash-fest into the new year!!! Thank you all for giving us this privilege to come and play for you. See you soon!”

Here are the tour dates:

1/22 — House of Blues, Las Vegas, Nev.
1/23 — House of Blues, Anaheim, Calif.
1/24 — Marquee Theatre, Tempe, Ariz.
1/27 — Egyptian Room @ Murat Center, Indianapolis, Ind.
1/28 — Piere’s Entertainment Center, Fort Wayne, Ind.
1/29 — Expo Five, Louisville, Ky.
1/30 — The Orange Peel, Asheville, N.C.
2/2 — Tabernacle, Atlanta, Ga.
2/3 — Promowest Pavilion, Columbus, Ohio
2/6 — Crocodile Rock, Allentown, Pa.
2/7 — Rams Head Live!, Baltimore, Md.
2/8 — Best Buy Theatre, New York, N.Y.

I had the chance to catch the "remastered" version of the Anthrax 'Behind The Music' over the weekend - not sure how I missed it the first time around but as the BTMs go, it's a good one - it made me want to pull out a bunch of my Anthrax albums after the fact, so I'd say that's a job well done.
