Anthrax at Wellmont Theatre, October 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)

The Metal Alliance tour returns for its third year, this time roping in thrash legends Anthrax to play all of their 1987 favorite, Among the Living, alongside sets from High on Fire (who recently played Bowery and MHoW), Exodus, Municipal Waste and Holy Grail. The North American trek kicks off in Las Vegas in March, heading West and eventually to the East Coast to conclude with a date at Irving Plaza on April 20. VIP tickets for all dates, which include a multitude of goodies, are already on sale. Regular tickets go on sale January 11.

UPDATE: High on Fire is confirmed to play Roadburn 2013, which directly conflict with 4/18 and 4/20... yes, NYC. According to a statement from the festival, the Roadburn appearances will NOT be cancelled, which means that NYC and the tail-end of this tour is more than likely not part of High on Fire's routing. Developing.

UPDATED AGAIN: High on Fire will not play April 15th through the end of the tour. That includes NYC.

Among the Living was probably the second or third metal record I ever got. Seen the rest of these bands (well, not Holy Grail) between one and a million times, but have never seen Anthrax. Gotta catch this.

how the hell is high on fire going to play NYC while they are supposed to be in europe playing roadburn....4/20 with anthrax and high on there!

Walter just tweeted that HoF will be playing the dates at Roadburn.

Contrary to the Metal Alliance dates on 4/18 and 4/20, High of Fire will play #Roadburn 2013 just as planned! Nothing to worry about!

I'd do this but it'll probably be like 50 bucks so I won't

I saw Exodus open up for Anthrax at the Headbangers Ball tour at the Felt Forum (aka Paramount aka The Theater at MSG). Awesome show.

Inquisition has a pretty huge cult following in black metal underground.
