Anthrax has released a fourth song from their upcoming album of classic rock covers called ‘Anthems.’ The group revealed a version of ‘Big Eyes’ by Cheap Trick for fans to enjoy. The entire album will be available on March 19 in the United States and on March 22 in Europe.

In June 2012 the group announced the project, and in January revealed their cover of ‘Anthem’ by Rush. In late February they shared their version of ‘T.N.T.’ by AC/DC and then revealed a cover of Thin Lizzy’s ‘Jailbreak‘ to fans on March 1. Other songs included on the EP include Boston‘s ‘Smokin” and Journey‘s ‘Keep On Runnin’.’

“It was a lot of fun, especially because a lot of those (songs) aren’t, I guess, normal for us or like so much of our repertoire — although they are because they’re songs we all knew,” guitarist Scott Ian told Billboard in January. “Maybe on paper the idea of us doing something like that seems weird, until you hear them and then it makes sense.”

Anthrax is currently in Australia, and they’ll begin a North American tour on March 22. The Metal Alliance Tour will include Shadows Fall guitarist Jon Donais filling in for departed guitarist Rob Caggiano. They’ll play 22 dates through April 20.
