ANTHRAX will release the "Live At The Sonisphere" 10-inch single — a picture disc featuring the tracks "Medusa" and "Only" from the "The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria" DVD and Blu-ray — on November 26 via Metal Club, a group of record stores throughout the U.S. and Canada that work to connect the vibrant metal community with their local record store. Fans will be able to visit their local Metal Club store for special metal promotional pieces, exciting in-store events, and a series of exclusive Metal Club releases.
About the importance of independent record stores, ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante said: "Indie stores are our only hope! People should cherish these wonderful treasures. Go, get lost in an indie record store, you may discovery a band or record that could blow your mind."
"The Sonisphere concerts were some of the greatest shows for us," added vocalist Joey Belladonna, "and to have shared it with METALLICA, SLAYER and MEGADETH was just the best. It's an experience none of us will ever forget, and we're happy that our fans can share a little of that, and that ANTHRAX can be part of the Metal Club with this single."

ANTHRAX just wrapped up the 20-date North American Jägermeister Music Tour with SLAYER and MEGADETH, and will head to South America in November for a handful of dates. They will then return to the U.S. to finish recording a new album — their first with Belladonna on vocals since 1990's "Persistence of Time" — set for a 2011 release.
ANTHRAX performed a new song, "Fight 'Em 'Til You Can't", with Belladonna for the first time during the October 8 concert at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
