    Kerrang and Metal Hammer??? It's been 10 years since these mags printed anything relevant! Kerrang is full of indie bands!

    Maybe not unheard of then in the pop community

    Volbeat headlining lol what a joke. They're not even good enough to carry Anthrax's jock.

    I also find this a bit weird. But who knows, maybe they do draw more people these days.

    Yeah true. Anthrax is pretty much supporting all the Nu Metal, Alternative Metal and Modern Metal acts instead of headlining. I saw them support Rob Zombie in 2006.

    To be fair, Rob Zombie has such a massive stage show that it's really difficult to peg him as anything but headliner material. And he draws good numbers - I've even seen him headline a couple major festivals.

    Good for them for making it, but Volbeat really sold out when they got their first big radio hit in Europe. It was called, ahem, Radio Girl and they've been writing the same song since. Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just haven't found their music enjoyable since that.

    Not into Volbeat.

    Seen Anthrax in 1988, 1991, 2012, 2013. All with Joey on vox. Was not a fan of Bush on vox.

    Will I see this tour? No. Spokane, WA is close by.

    I don't know why Anthrax uses the Pentagram. They aren't satanic. Do they even have satanic songs?

    Cause it's not a Pentagram. It's a Pentathrax. Tongue in cheek. in the true Anthrax style of humour, that's all. If you take that at all seriously, you're way off the mark.

    Volbeat sucks cock. Top 40 mainstream pussy shit. They should be touring with someone like Exodus or Overkill.

    Just sickens me.

    Whether you like them or not, Volbeat are pretty popular right now and this is a good tour for Anthrax. And they just toured with Exodus last year. They tried to tour with Overkill on the tour with Testament and Death Angel, but Overkill backed out. It's not like they won't play with those kind of bands again, but for now, the Volbeat tour will be a good thing for Anthrax.

    I get how you feel though. I skipped the tour with Testament when they opened for a couple of bands that I didn't care for. No big deal. Sit this one out and wait for the next tour.

    Is the date list final for this? If it comes close by I'd go for Anthrax & skip out after.

    Thanks for the info. I used to like Anthrax, but not that much anymore.

    To each his own.

    Shouldn't it be a Thraxagram, then?

    I dunno, I didn't make it up.

    It's just known as the Pentathrax.
