ANTHRAX INVITES FANS TO VIDEO SHOOT
Now this is kind of interesting. A few hours ago, we received an announcement from Anthrax which they sent around to the media (including Metal Sludge). Apparently, they’re shooting a video tomorrow night and want all kinds of metalheads to show up and appear in it! Here’s the press release:
For Immediate Release:
Calling All Headbangers! Hardcore Metal Fans Invited To New ANTHRAX Video Shoot in NYC
In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of being one of the few truly fan-friendly heavy metal bands in the world, ANTHRAX has offered an open invitation to headbangers around the country to participate in the filming of their latest video, an updated version of the classic cut ?Deathrider?, taken from the forthcoming historic release The Greater Of Two Evils.
The video is being filmed at the new SNITCH Night Club (59 West 21st Street; between 5th and 6th Avenues) on THURSDAY, OCTOBER 28th between 10pm ? 2am. The video is slated to contain everyone from your ?average joe?, to porn stars, the Naked Cowboy in Times Square, the hot strippers from TENs down the street, special celebrity guest appearances, and ample amounts of banging heads and slamming fists. In classic ANTHRAX form, ?Deathrider? is designed to display the band in their natural setting, united among the people!
The Greater of Two Evils, released November 23rd through Sanctuary Records is a trip down memory lane, featuring 14 tracks of ANTHRAX classics, re-recorded and updated with the vocal potency of longtime singer John Bush. The entire track listing was culled from an Internet voting campaign at www.anthrax.com in appreciation of their fans, and in anticipation of the band?s proposed monumental 2005 Anniversary World Tour.
For more directions to The Snitch, call 212-675-8007, or see www.anthrax.com for more details.
Now that’s pretty cool of them to invite their fans to take part in their new video shoot. Who wouldn’t want to be in an Anthrax video?
Of course, we’d love to have a big Metal Sludge presence in the crowd during this particular video shoot. So, naturally, we’re asking all the Sludgeaholics in the New York City area with nothing better to do to show up wearing Sludgendise and to take part in this historic video moment. So tomorrow night, strap on your old school, head on down to The Snitch, and make your 5 seconds of fame happen for yourself! You can thank us later.
Be All, Sludge All
