“Anthrax and Killswitch will be a really good blend for fans,” commented Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante. “We both play metal, but we play two different forms of the genre. I think fans of both bands are in for a ‘Total Explosion of the Senses.'”

Anthrax bassist Frank Bello added: “This Anthrax/KSE tour is a powerful ball of energy ready to unleash the metal in the U.S.”
