ANTHRAX have pushed back the release date for their new CD, "We've Come For You All", until Apr. 15 in all territories outside Japan and Europe, where it is still scheduled to surface on Feb. 4 and Feb. 24, respectively. "We've Come For You All" will be issued through ArtistDirect/BMG Records in North America and Nuclear Blast Records in Europe."I hate to tell you this but... the record got pushed back to April 15," ANTHRAX drummer Charlie Benante wrote on the band's official web site. "Go ahead and yell... finished? GOOD. April Fool's Day to Tax Day. How apropos! Next delay will be Arbor Day. It's only been 73 years since 'Vol. 8', what's another week or two? The record company needed the extra time to put more time into the promotion of the 'greatest record ever made'. One day all this crap will be over and you'll be in your car, your room, your bathroom, your girlfriend's (oops) or wherever you may be and you'll be rocking out to some killer shit!! "I know most of you understood what I said about downloading the record and I really appreciate the loyalty towards the band and the music. For those who think it is OK to download it I will say this — WHY? What right do you have to take MY Music for free? I wasn't recorded for free. This is a serious issue and I would like to see the record companies get behind it and REALLY do something about it. I would get pissed when this Napster thing was going down and you had these fucking moron artists saying 'It's OK to download our music.' Oh yeah!!! Now look at what's happening. People love getting something for nothing, I DO TOO! In this business you get some free CDs here and there but if I'm into the band or the song... I'm at the damn store buying the fucking thing! It's as simple as that. OK, enough already. Please be patient and wait for the 'greatest record ever made.' Alright maybe it's not the 'greatest record ever made' but how can you top Peter Criss's first solo album?"
