Anthrax's Scott Ian has today released the first teaser video for his spoken word tour of the UK that begins in Oxford on May 24th.


Watch the video below.


Scott Ian:


"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."
