Anthrax will head overseas next fall.

The band announced the schedule for its 2022 European tour Tuesday. The tour is scheduled to launch Sept. 27 in Birmingham, UK and to run through Nov. 5 in Zurich, Switzerland. Municipal Waste will serve as support for the tour.

Drummer Charlie Benante said in a prepared statement that while the tour is still more than a year away, the band is already anticipating the tour’s launch.

“It sure has been a long time since we rock’n’rolled in the UK and Europe,” said Benante, “but we’re coming back soon to bring the noise to all of you guys.  Being that we can’t get over there until 2022, we’re going to make sure that every show will be an eventful one.  We won’t just be playing four decades of songs to celebrate our ongoing 40th anniversary – hey, we’ll be giving YOU some history! – but we just might have some brand new ones for you as well.  Can’t wait to see all your happy, smiling faces!!!”

Front man Joey Belladonna echoed Benante’s sentiments in his own statement.

“There’s just something special about Europe,” said Belladonna. “Our fans there have always had a full-fledged excitement about our shows, and I enjoy performing more than anyone can imagine, so we’re really looking forward to this tour.”
