Anthrax to Release ‘The Devil You Know’ Bourbon
"If we find something we really like and that we actually drink ourselves, we think maybe our fans might like it too, so we want to make it available for them," says guitarist Scott Ian. "We really enjoyed 'Indians,' the bourbon we produced last year, and obviously our fans did as well as it sold out really quickly."
This time the band members worked with Kentucky-based Knob Creek to produce two barrels of a high-end bourbon called "The Devil You Know." The barrels were aged for nine years, a process that results in a richer and more distinctive taste.
"We had a great time sampling the different bourbons to find the one we thought was the best," says bassist Frank Bello, "And we hope our fans have the same good time drinking it. Responsibly, of course."
"The Devil You Know" bourbon is priced at $59 and available now at this location. Every bottle comes with a card that's personally autographed by the band.
As they continue to work on a new album that's expected to be released next year, Anthrax have extensive touring planned for the rest of 2015. They'll embark on a North American tour with Motorhead beginning Aug. 19 in Riverside, Calif. Before that the band will be playing Riot Fest in Denver, Colo. on Aug. 28 and Sept. 11 in Chicago. For all their concert dates, go here.
