ANTHRAX's recently-completed We've Come For You All CD will likely be issued in the US via Beyond Records following a breakdown in negotiations between the latter and Sanctuary Records over a buy-out of the band's contract, informed sources have told BLABBERMOUTH.NET.
No official word has yet come down on the matter, but it is believed that Beyond Records was in the process of selling their entire catalog to Sanctuary, an arrangement that is said to have fallen through once Beyond had gotten their operation up and running again.
ANTHRAX, who are signed directly to Beyond, were to be included in failed deal, and are said to be less than pleased with the company's decision to pull the plug on the negotiations so close to the album's projected release date.
As a result of this most recent setback, Nuclear Blast Records have announced that the European release date of We've Come For You All has been pushed back to early 2003. A US release through Beyond is now expected around the same time.
