ANTHRAX Take Anonymous Stab At European Radio

May 18, 2003

NYRock.com spoke with Scott Ian from ANTHRAX and asked him about reports that had the group sending out copies of their new single, "Safe Home", to radio stations in Europe without including the controversial name of the band. "That's true. It was worth a try," Ian said. "Obviously, with the name ANTHRAX, we're not radio material. I'm not putting too much hope in that we get much airplay, but if it should happen, I'm not complaining. I don't really know if that would help us to sell more, but it would be great for people who don't know our music and probably would be tempted to give us a listen. We had a lot of shit happening in the past and we don't want to expect too much."

"Safe Home" comes off ANTHRAX's latest CD, "We've Come For You All", which shifted 9,819 copies in the U.S. during its first week of release to debut at No. 122 on The Billboard 200 chart.

ANTHRAX will kick off a European tour on June 5 with an appearance at Summer Rocks Festival in Budapest, Hungary.
