Anthrax's Scott Ian Posts Teaser Video For 'Speaking Words' UK Tour

Scott Ian, co-founding member for legendary New York thrash outfit Anthrax, has unveiled a teaser video for his ‘Speaking Words’ UK tour.

Speaking about the new tour, Scott says: “My first 'Speaking Words' tour and I get to do it in the UK and Ireland? Really? Wow, how fucking cool is that!!! My one-off show in London went so well and now I get to speak words at you all over the place. Thank you for having a superior sense of humour.

I'm calling it 'Speaking Words' because the pretension of saying I am doing a 'Spoken Word' tour is too much to bear. This ain't no poetry reading. This isn't an evening of sensitive discourse.

It's an evening of ridiculous truth. It's me talking (swearing) about this insane life I've led over the last 31 years, the people I've met and the shit that's happened. And when I'm done swearing, you can ask me anything you want, the floor is yours. Cheers my friends, see you in May and June.”

In a career spanning three decades, Scott Ian helped to create Thrash Metal in the mid-80’s. With stories from his 30+ years of travelling around the world, the new shows will conclude with a Q&A session where the audience gets to ask Scott what they want to know.

With festival season almost upon us and summer doing its best, June through to August can be a dry spell for gig-goers not keen on fields. There's a warm-up show here and there, and the occasional blinding tour to keep non-festival goers satisfied, but it's a time crying out for something different.
