Last night (July 26th), Anthrax kicked off their North American tour with Black Label Society and Hatebreed in Phoenix, Arizona. The thrash pioneers' 12-song set included the surprising inclusion of the John Bush-era fan favorite "Only," which they hadn't played live since 2011. The cut originally appeared on 1993's Sound of White Noise and was famously called "a perfect song" by Metallica's James Hetfield. Hear current Anthrax singer Joey Belladonna put his spin on it in the fan-shot video below.

The Anthrax/BLS/Hatebreed trek is set to play a substantial number of west coast dates before heading out east and up into Canada, ultimately concluding in Philly on August 28th. Tickets are available here and see the full routing of remaining dates below.
