Purchase ANTHRAX's new album, "Worship Music", at Amoeba in San Francisco, California on Sunday, October 23 and get it signed by the band. The event is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.* Signing is limited to the first 100 people who buy the album on October 23
* Fans may have one additional item signed by the band. An Amoeba staff photographer will take photos of fans with the band, and these will be downloable after the event on Amoeba.com. There will be no personal photos allowed at the signing table due to limited time. "Worship Music" sold 28,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous studio CD, 2003's "We've Come For You All", opened with just under 10,000 units to debut at No. 122. The CD cover artwork for "Worship Music" was handled by renowned comic book artist Alex Ross, who has worked with Marvel Comics and DC Comics and is known for his "Marvels", "Kingdom Come", and "Astro City" illustrations. Ross also did the original artwork for ANTHRAX's "We've Come For You All" and "Music Of Mass Destruction" albums. "Worship Music" was produced by ANTHRAX, Rob Caggiano and Jay Ruston and recorded over a four-year period at studios in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Singer Joey Belladonna's return to the band prompted some of the songs originally recorded with previous singer Dan Nelson to be re-crafted with fresh lyrics or tweaked to better suit his overall vibe and energy. Some of the songs were completely replaced with brand-new songs and, of course, all have Belladonna's inimitable vocal stamp on them.
