Anthrax Stream Rare 'For All Kings' B-Side, "Vice of the People"
Anthrax have shared “Vice of the People,” a song that was previously only available as a bonus track on the Japanese-edition of their latest album, ‘For All Kings.’ The track will appear on the band’s forthcoming ‘For All Kings 7-Inch Box Set,’ which is out this Friday, March 24. The song can be streamed at this location.
"Doing a box set edition of 'For All Kings' was something that we've always wanted to do," commented Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. "We wanted to do something special, something that was so much more than the original release, and have it be fun for our audience when they open it up, just be floored by the different colored vinyl, the artwork, everything that's inside. And we think we've done that."
In addition to including “Vice of the People” and the full track-listing from ‘For All Kings,’ the 10 seven-inch vinyl disc set will also contain six demos tracks and two never-before-heard covers of The White Stripes’ “Black Math” and Kansas’ “Carry On.” Each disc will feature artwork designed by Douglas Heusser and Stephen Thompson as well as band shots from Jimmy Hubbard. The artwork and discs can be seen in the unboxing video below.
