Anthrax Announce Partial Track-Listing for Rock Covers EP

Anthrax Announce Partial Track-Listing for Rock Covers EP -

Anthrax
recently announced they'll be releasing a collection of classic rock covers as part of a revamped edition of their acclaimed 2011 album 'Worship Music.' 

The tracks announced to feature on the collection so far are Rush's 'Anthem,' Journey's 'Keep On Runnin,' Thin Lizzy classic 'Jailbreak,' AC/DC's 'TNT' and Cheap Trick's 'Big Eyes.'

On the project Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian told Billboard ( Ultimate Classic Rock):

"It was a lot of fun, especially because a lot of those (songs) aren't, I guess, normal for us or like so much of our repertoire - although they are because they're songs we all knew. Maybe on paper the idea of us doing something like that seems weird, until you hear them and then it makes sense."

In related news Anthrax have recently been touted to headline this year's 'Metal Alliance Tour' with Exodus beginning 23rd March (2013).
