Expect an Anthrax outbreak in Canada this fall.
The American thrash-metal vets are heading north of the border for a run of shows in late September and early October, according to the online concert site Pollster.
Anthrax’s Canadian tour reportedly begins Sept. 20 in Vancouver and heads east, wrapping up in Montreal on Oct. 2.
There’s no information yet on tickets or opening acts, so stay tuned for more info.
The New York City outfit — co-founded by guitarist Scott Ian in 1981 — are one of the so-called Big Four of thrash, along with Metallica,
Megadeth and Slayer. They recently reunited with longtime singer Joey Belladonna to release their 10th studio album Worship Music.

I'll be at the Saskatoon show on the 24th. They put on a great performance when they opened for Rob Zombie in '06, so I'm definitely looking forward to a headlining show. Hope they bring some good openers with them.
