Slayer Announce North American Tour, Looking to Spend More Time in Studio
Thrash giants Slayer have officially confirmed their first North American headlining tour in two years. Featuring Gojira and 4arm as support acts, the trek will kick off on October 22 in Anchorage, Alaska, and see the group visiting New York's Theatre at Madison Square Garden and LA's Hollywood Palladium for the first time in 25 years. According to the official announcement, Slayer have begun working on new material and are hoping to spend extra time in the studio before hitting the open road. The tickets will go on sale this Friday (September 6) via official website. You can check out the full tour itinerary below. The latest Slayer studio effort, "World Painted Blood," dropped in November 2009 as the group's tenth record.
