Thrash institution Anthrax is set to release 10” picture disc Live at the Sonisphere on Nov. 26. The double-song disc features “Medusa” and “Only” from the The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria DVD and Blu-ray.

The disc will be available through Metal Club, a group of U.S. and Canadian record stores that connect metal fans with independent local record retailers. Fans can visit their local Metal Club store for special metal promotional pieces, exciting in-store events and exclusive Metal Club releases.

“Indie stores are our only hope,” Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante said. “People should cherish these wonderful treasures. Go, get lost in an indie record store—you may discover a band or record that could blow your mind.”

In other Anthrax news, the band performed new song “Fight ’Em ’Til You Can’t,” with singer Joey Belladonna for the first time during an Oct. 8 concert at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y., as part of the Jägermeister Music Tour with Slayer and Megadeth. Further, since returning from the European tour, Anthrax has started writing and rehearsing for a new album expected in early 2011.
