SLAYER will join forces with special guests ANTHRAX and DEATH ANGEL this fall for a seven-week North American beat down. The dates start in Cleveland on September 9 and will hit both major and secondary markets across the continent. The SLAYER fan club presale starts at 10:00 a.m. local time on Tuesday, May 10, and the general on-sale begins this Friday, May 13 at 10:00 a.m. local time.

Said SLAYER’s Kerry King: “It’s always super fun for us to tour with ANTHRAX. Frank [Bello] is one of my best friends in the biz!! Put that together with DEATH ANGEL, and fans will probably see the best package this year. See you there!”

Fans will hear their favorite SLAYER songs from the band’s 30-plus-year discography, as well as a few of the newer songs from “Repentless”, named “The Metal Album of the Year” by Guitar World. SLAYER and ANTHRAX stormed through Europe together last fall, amassing a string of sensational live reviews, so North American fans, this will be a night of metal music that should not be missed.

“We are very excited to tour again with our fellow Kings SLAYER on a thrash/metal extravaganza,” said ANTHRAX’s Charlie Benante. “Two of the Big Four — now that’s a night of metal for all the Kings and Queens!”

Added Mark Osegueda from DEATH ANGEL: “We are thrilled and honored to be part of this amazing North American touring package. SLAYER/ANTHRAX/DEATH ANGEL — it just looks, sounds and feels right. This will be DEATH ANGEL’s first-ever tour with SLAYER, something we’ve hungered for our entire career. And we will bring that hunger to the stage every night, so get there early because this will be a show not to be missed; from the first note of the night until the very last! Metal is alive, hungry, thriving, and coming for you!”
