Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante told The Aquarian Weekly that he had long been a fan of the KANSAS track and frequently drummed to it as a teen. "I had to go back into the hard drive of my brain and remember how to play the song. We wanted to do it justice," he said.
The song is featured on Anthrax's new "For All Kings 7-Inch Box Set," which is available exclusively on the Anthrax/Killswitch Engage US tour currently underway.
"Doing a box-set edition of 'For All Kings' was something that we've always wanted to do," said Benante, who worked closely with Heusser and Thompson on the box set's artwork. "We wanted to do something special, something that was so much more than the original release, and have it be fun for our audience when they open it up, just be floored by the different colored vinyl, the artwork, everything that's inside. And we think we've done that."
