As a preview to the upcoming 30th anniversary reissue of Anthrax's "Spreading The Disease", the New York thrash veterans have released an unheard live version of 1985's "Madhouse".

The track represents one of a clutch of previously unheard live songs recorded in 1987 during the band's first concert in Japan at Tokyo's Sun Plaza with a line-up that featured Joey Belladonna, Dan Spitz, Scott Ian, Frank Bello & Charlie Benante.

Asides from the live version disc, the double-disc reissue will also include never before heard bonus material including Joey Belladonna's demo recording of "Medusa" and a collection of "rhythm tracks" from Anthrax recordings.

On the reissue, drummer Charlie Benante said:

"We wanted to do something special for our fans to celebrate the anniversary of "Spreading The Disease."
