The countdown to July 18, the 40th anniversary of thrash/metal legends ANTHRAX, is well underway and heading towards the big finale. A special worldwide livestream event, presented by Danny Wimmer Presents and originating from Los Angeles, will kick off in North America on Friday, July 16, beginning at 4 p.m. PT and 7 p.m. ET, and in the U.K. on Saturday, July 17, starting at midnight BST. Livestream event tickets and special 40th-anniversary ticket bundles — one including a live video chat with the members of ANTHRAX — are on sale now. Special 40th-anniversary artwork was created by Brian Ewing and Stephen Thompson for limited-edition t-shirts, commemorative tickets, and an anniversary poster. In addition to the livestream and merchandise bundles, fans will be able to buy a digital ticket to relive the past 40 years with exclusive interviews, testimonials, and behind-the-scenes stories of the band’s legendary career. All purchasing details are accessible at www.anthraxlive.com.

The global livestream event, debuting July 16/17 (depending on your global location), will remain available to fans worldwide to tune in through July 25 at 11:59 p.m. ET via video on demand. The band — Joey Belladonna (vocals), Scott Ian (rhythm guitar), Frank Bello (bass), Charlie Benante (drums), and Jon Donais (guitar) — will perform an extensive set of hits and deep cuts that will pull from the band’s entire catalog.

The countdown to July 18 began on May 3 with the ongoing, 11-week, online video docu-series presented on ANTHRAX‘s social media accounts. Posted every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, in the album catalog’s chronological order, each episode focuses on a particular album, with past and present band members, fellow musicians, colleagues, and industry veterans sharing behind-the-scenes stories of their interactions. Those contributing their personal memories include Kerry KingRobert TrujilloDave GrohlDave MustaineGene SimmonsHenry RollinsJohn CarpenterNorman ReedusRob ZombieSlashTom MorelloMike PattonNergalDarryl McDanielsMichael Paulson and Roger Miret.

“I was a 17-year-old metal-head kid from Queens when I started this band,” said 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.”
