ANTHRAX Part With SANCTUARY RECORDS, Pursue Other Options

ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian has confirmed to BLABBERMOUTH.NET that the band have ended their brief association with Sanctuary Records before they'd released even a single album through the label. However, the group are currently involved in negotiations with another record company and things are "working out just fine", said Ian.

Although speculation has run rampant that the release date of the band's already-completed new album We've Come For You All will be pushed back to early 2003 as a result of this most recent setback, the guitarist appears confident that the CD will surface in October, as previously planned. A European release through Nuclear Blast Records is expected around the same time.

In other news, ANTHRAX are tentatively scheduled to support MOTÖRHEAD on their European tour from October 13th through November 8th. Exact dates and venues will be announced shortly.
