Anthrax will release a live DVD, captured on 15th February 2017 at the band's sold-out concert at Glasgow's historic Barrowland Ballroom, on 27th April 2018.

Titled 'Kings Among Scotland', the two-hour release incorporates Anthrax's entire live show along with interviews, behind-the-scenes footage and other B-roll shot on the tour bus, backstage, in hotels and elsewhere. The DVD will also include a 'gear rundown' from each of the band members.

"Playing for our friends at the Barrowlands has always been very special," said Anthrax's Frank Bello.

"We all know we're going to get together and have an insanely great time, and we think that incredible interaction and energy really comes through on this video."

"It was pretty a intense show," added guitarist Scott Ian, "especially when the crowd was so insane, the floor actually started moving up and down."

With packaging art created by Steve Thompson (Slayer, Motörhead, Iron Maiden), the DVD's concert is presented in two parts. For part one, Anthrax performed the 'favourites' that had been voted on pre-show by the fans and includes gems like 'Madhouse', 'Be All, End All', 'Breathing Lightning' and 'A.I.R.'

The band augmented the stage production for part two, with ramps and staircases and other production values while they tore into their classic 1987 album,'Among The Living', performing 'Caught In A Mosh', 'I Am the Law', 'Indians', 'Eflinikufesin (N.F.L.)' and more.

"It was a challenge for all of us to play 'Among The Living' live," admits drummer Charlie Benante.

"We've played a number of that album's songs in our shows over the years, but not all of them, and playing a song in a recording studio is not the same as playing it live on stage. So we put in a lot of time to get all of the tracks down perfectly.

"And I'll tell you, after we finished that set, as arduous as it was, we all felt a sense of exhiliration, like we could go out and do it again."

'Kings Among Scotland' was produced, directed, filmed and edited for Film24Productions by Paul M Green (Opeth, The Damned, The Levellers), with the sound mixed by Anthrax studio producer Jay Ruston. For the filming, Green utilized seventeen cameras, including a crane and several mobile and stationery Go-Pros.
