    Anthrax and Black Label Society are heading back out for another leg of North American co-headlining tour dates in early 2023. This time, they’re bringing along Bay Area thrash pioneers Exodus.

    The outing kicks off January 17th in Boise, Idaho, and runs through February 18th on Exodus’ home turf in Oakland, California. A Citi pre-sale begins today (November 1st) at noon ET, while Live Nation and Ticketmaster pre-sales begin Wednesday (November 2nd) at 10 a.m. local time using the code HEADLINE. General sales begin Friday (November 4th) at 10 a.m. local time. Pick up tickets via Ticketmaster.

    In a band statement, Anthrax remarked, “We are so pumped to be hitting the road again with Black Label Society. We had such a great time when we toured with them earlier this year, that we had talked about doing it again when we were still on the road together. And, having the guys from Exodus on the bill as Special Guest, will definitely make this a tour not to miss.”

    Black Label Society leader Zakk Wylde stated, “Anthrax is one of the bestest legendary metal/thrash bands of all time. I have been buds with Scotty, Charlie, Frankie, and Joey for over 3O years and they are some of the bestest people you will meet. Jon is the bestest new addition Anthrax could ask for. The ANTHRAX + BLACK LABEL SOCIETY & EXODUS TOUR is going to be one of the bestest tours ever!”


    Added Exodus’ Gary Holt, “Exodus are super stoked to announce that we will be touring with Anthrax and Black Label Society. Touring with our long-time friends in Anthrax is always an epic good time, and now we get to tour with BLS and watch Zakk and company rip it up nightly too! Going to be awesome and we will be bringing our unique brand of audio violence to every city! Let the metal roll!”

    The initial run of Anthrax/Black Label Society dates was a heavy highlight of 2022. Prior to the kickoff, Zakk Wylde and Anthrax’s Scott Ian caught up with each other for Consequence‘s “Two for the Road” video series, where they discussed the tour and reminisced about old times. We also witnessed the two acts throw down at Coney Island back in August. Suffice to say, adding Exodus to the bill makes this one of the strongest 2023 tour packages that has been announced thus far.
