Back in April we first heard that thrash metal pioneers Anthrax would be including a cover of Rush's Anthem on an upcoming tribute EP. Some more information regarding the EP just came to light via a recent Loudwire interview with Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante:

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," he said. "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. also adds that the EP is expected to release around September 13th and also include covers of AC/DC's T.N.T., Boston's Smokin' and Journey's Keep on Runnin'. Here's a one-minute YouTube video of Benante laying down the drum track for Anthem:

Thanks to John at for the heads up.
