Anthrax to Play 'Among the Living' in Full at Sonisphere
Anthrax fans heading to Sonisphere this summer will be no doubt psyched to hear that they can expect a double dose of the thrash metal legends.

AsĀ Planet Rock reports, Scott Ian and co. Have announced that they will be playing a second set at the festival, in addition to their already scheduled performance on the main stage on Saturday. What's more, said set will comprise a complete run through of the band's classic 1987 album "Among the Living." Says Ian of the decision:

"We love to play these songs and people love to hear them so we're really f--king excited to be doing this special show the day before our main-stage performance at Sonisphere."
