Anthrax Streaming Rush Cover "Anthem"

Anthrax has just made available a taste of the band's upcoming EP "Anthems," which is due out March 19th. "Anthem," the band's cover of the classic Rush song, can be heard through Rollingstone.com here.

In addition to the EP's cover art, each of the cover songs will have its own special artwork, each one based on the tracks' original album cover, but subtly "reimagined" by Anthrax's Charlie Benante and artist Stephen Thompson.

The "Anthems" track listing features Rush's "Anthem," Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak," "TNT" by AC/DC, Boston's "Smokin'," "Big Eyes" by Cheap Trick, Journey's "Keep on Runnin," as well as the album version and a special remix of Anthrax's "Crawl" from the band's 2011 album "Worship Music."

"Anthems" was produced by Anthrax, Jay Ruston, and Rob Caggiano, and recorded for the most part throughout 2012 literally all over the world: at Benante's home studio, in Ruston's New York studio, on the band's tour bus while on last summer's Mayhem Tour, in hotel rooms, and backstage at a Berlin show last December.
