For the first time ever, Anthrax and Black Label Society will embark on a tour together, with five weeks booked for this summer in the United States and Canada. Joining them will be special guest Hatebreed.

“Zakk has been a friend and an inspiration to me as a guitar player, songwriter, and beard grower since we met in 1988," said Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian of his longtime friendship with Black Label Society frontman Zakk Wylde.

"We’ve had the privilege to share festival stages with Zakk and BLS around the world, and it’s always been a head-banging mutual admiration society between the two bands. Now we get to share the stage every night on what is easily going to be the heaviest tour of 2022 - the ultimate pounding one-two combination of bands. Oh, and did I mention we’ve got fucking Hatebreed with us as our special guests? Holy crap, it’s going to be the night of 1000 crushing riffs. I can’t wait to see you all on the road," Ian continued.

Pumped up for the summer trek, which stretches from July 26 through Aug. 28, Wylde exclaimed, "Anthrax is one of The bestest/legendary metal/thrash band of all time - I have been buds with Scotty, Charlie, Frankie and Joey for over 3O years & they are some of the bestest people you will meet. Jon is the bestest new addition Anthrax could ask for - Hatebreed are The bestest hardcore/extreme metal band and bestest friends with Anthrax and Black Label Society. The Anthrax and Black Label Society and Hatebreed tour is going to be one of the BESTEST TOURS EVER!!"

“Listen up! It’s gonna be a hot summer! Anthrax, BLS and Hatebreed will be on your case, in your face & ready to kick you and your father back in place! See you in the pit," added Hatebreed's Jamey Jasta, whose group will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of their historic Perseverance album.

See the upcoming tour dates below. Eight pre-sales opportunities will be available from April 18 at 12PM ET through April 21 at 10PM local time. Head to the Anthrax website or Black Label Society website for more ticketing information.
