We’ve got some awesome news for you Anthrax fans out there! To celebrate the creative success and critical acclaim of the band’s 2011 album, ‘Worship Music,’ Anthrax are planning on treating fans with a special EP due out in September of this year.

During our very recent interview with Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante, (seriously, it was like an hour ago) the legendary stickman told us that the band is working on an EP of cover songs. The upcoming work will pay tribute to some of Anthrax’s favorite bands — more specifically, bands from the 1970s.

“To commemorate the first year of ‘Worship Music’ being out, we’re putting together a little companion EP with some fun s–t on it,” says Benante. “It started out as what I call ‘The ’70s EP.’ It’s made up of some cover songs from our favorite bands — consisting of Rush, Thin Lizzy, Boston, Journey … We’re still working on it now, but I think it’s gonna be really cool.”

Anthrax are no strangers to cover songs. In their over 30-year career they’ve put their touch on ‘God Save the Queen’ by the Sex Pistols, Black Sabbath‘s ‘Sabbath Bloody Sabbath’ and numerous KISS tracks such as ‘She’ and ‘Love Her All I Can.’

The one-year anniversary of ‘Worship Music’ will fall on Sept. 13 of this year, so get ready for an assault of classic covers to hit very soon. Stay tuned for our full interview with Charlie Benante.
