ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has posted the following message on the band's official web site:
"25 years since Danny Lilker and I started this band.
"25 years. Who does anything for 25 years? And in band years, that's like a thousand years.
"In all seriousness, it's my proudest accomplishment. To still be doing this 25 years down the line at this level is a testament to the strength of the people that love this band.
"From everyone that's ever been in the band to anyone that's ever taken the time to listen, thank you. Someday I'll write the book and properly give everyone their due, until then raise a glass with me and recite my favorite toast:
"'Here's to us and those like us and all the rest are cunts.'"
ANTHRAX is currently supporting ROB ZOMBIE on his "American Witch Across America" tour. The band's next appearance is scheduled for tonight (Tuesday, July 18) in Evansville, IN.
