After just announcing that they’re releasing a limited-edition Wardance Craft Beer through New York’s Butternuts Brewery, now comes news that Anthrax will release a limited edition For All Kings 7″ Vinyl Box Set. Available exclusively in North America and released in conjunction with the band’s upcoming Spring co-headline tour with Killswitch Engage, the set goes on sale March 24 and will retail for $79.99. Check out drummer Charlie Benante doing an unboxing below…
The “For All Kings 7-Inch Box Set” includes a removable lenticular cover and contains 10 7-inch vinyl discs featuring 20 songs – the 11 finished album tracks, two brand new covers (The White Stripes’ “Black Math” and the classic Kansas song “Carry On”), six demos from the FAK track listing, and “Vice of the People,” a bonus track previously released only in Japan and now making its North American vinyl debut. The original album cover art sketch by Alex Ross is also part of this package, as well as a download card enabling the holder to access the Box Set’s tracklisting for free.
Each 7-inch disc features gorgeous, double-sided four-color artwork designed by Douglas Heusser with additional art by Stephen Thompson, as well as band photos by Jimmy Hubbard. The tracks are pressed onto different-colored vinyl discs – red, green, blue, maroon, orange, most with a two-color swirl design.
“Doing a box set edition of ‘For All Kings’ was something that we’ve always wanted to do,” said Benante, who worked closely with Heusser and Thompson on the box set’s artwork. “We wanted to do something special, something that was so much more than the original release, and have it be fun for our audience when they open it up, just be floored by the different colored vinyl, the artwork, everything that’s inside. And we think we’ve done that.”
