Cancels European Tour Plans

According to the Facebook page of the IN FLAMES-curated Borgholm Brinner festival, ANTHRAX has canceled its plans to tour Europe this summer "due to scheduling conflicts." The bandmembers "sincerely apologize to all of their fans and hope to see them very soon," ANTHRAX says in a statement. ANTHRAX was one of several acts scheduled to perform at Borgholm Brinner on July 27-28 at Borgholm Castle in Borgholm, Sweden. The group will support SLAYER on the first leg of the Tom Araya-fronted band's farewell world tour, which will kick off with a May 10 concert at San Diego's Valley View Casino Center. ANTHRAX will release its long-awaited live-in-concert DVD, "Kings Among Scotland", on April 27 via Megaforce. Captured on February 15, 2017 at the band's sold-out concert at Glasgow's historic venue Barrowland Ballroom, the two-hour "Kings Among Scotland" incorporates the band's entire live show along with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other B-roll shot on the band's tour bus, backstage, in hotels and elsewhere. The DVD will also include a "gear rundown" from each of the band members. "Kings Among Scotland" can be pre-ordered at
