Confirmed tour dates are below. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday, October 20t at 10AM local time - go to www.anthrax.com for all ticket purchasing and VIP packages info.

Havok will serve as the opening act for the entire tour.

Said Anthrax's Frank Bello, "After playing so many amazing shows last year with our friends Killswitch Engage, I'm psyched for round two of KillThrax, and we're adding Havoc to the heaviness!!" Added Charlie Benante, "The shows were great, the audiences were great and we all felt great about the whole thing, so why not do it again?"

"We are looking forward to the next leg of the 'KillThrax' tour," said KsE singer Jesse Leach. "We had a blast on the first one and we enjoyed sharing the stage with the humble legends Anthrax! There is such a synergy between the two bands and a certain unity that is infectious, so it was a no brainer to put this package back together and hit the road. It's an honor and we are excited for these shows, the fans, and the good times! KillThrax is gearing up for round two, so let's keep the party rolling!"
