Each person attending needs their own wristband in order to get into the event. Wristband purchases are non-returnable. Only a limited number of wristbands will be available, so order yours while supplies last! ANTHRAX guitarist Scott Ian told Overdrive about the "For All Kings" title: "The meaning, to me, for this title is that everybody can be a king. Everybody can have control over their own lives, control over their destiny, just by growing up and becoming a responsible human being. I'm not necessarily saying that being a "king" is being the boss in your relationship, or any relationship for that matter. A king of yourself is what I mean. Taking responsibility and ownership for your own shit is basically what it means to me." Beginning in the fall of 2014, ANTHRAX — Ian, Charlie Benante (drums), Frank Bello (bass), Joey Belladonna (vocals), and lead guitarist Jon Donais — took their time in the studio recording the follow up to their Grammy-nominated, critically acclaimed 2011 album, "Worship Music". The band recorded some 20 original songs, almost twice as many as they had ever brought into the studio in the past. (Thanks: NJthrasher)
