Prepare for KillThrax II: Killswitch Engage and Anthrax reunite for co-headlining tour

Credit: Travis ShinnEarlier this year, Killswitch Engage and Anthrax joined forces for the awesomely titled KillThrax co-headlining tour. But if you missed out on the metal fury, or need a second go-round, the two bands will reunite early next year for the KillThrax II tour.

Evil Dead II. Dawn of the Dead. The Godfather: Part 2. The Empire Strikes Back. All sequels that are better than the original. Add ‘KillThrax II’ to that list,” says Anthrax’s Scott Ian in a statement. “Back by popular demand, KillThrax is coming at ya again my friends.” 

The newly announced trek begins January 25 in Montreal, and will conclude March 4 in Portland, Maine. For ticket info, visit
