Legendary thrash metal band Slayer has announced that they will be hitting the road for a week/week and a half tour with punk-thrash band Suicidal Tendencies and Bay Area thrashers Exodus. It is the first time that Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies have toured together since 1990’s European “Clash Of The Titans” tour. Gary Holt will be pulling double duty during the upcoming tour, playing with both Slayer and Exodus. The tour will culminate with the band’s performance at this year’s Rock On The Range
Slayer guitarist Kerry King says, “Can’t wait for this week of shows to happen. LOVE Suicidal, and havent played with them in over 20 years! Everyone knows I’m a huge Exodus fan also. I guarantee you I will be watching every show from the stage! Going to be awesome!!!”
The band is currently in the studio writing and recording their new album, the follow up to 2009’s World Painted Blood. Head below for the confirmed tour dates.
Suicidal Tendencies’ Mike Muir comments, “It’s been 24 years since Suicidal Tendencies played with Slayer, so it’s long overdue that we finally play some shows in the States together. I have lots of great memories from that tour, and know that there will be a lot more after these shows, for the band and the people. Can’t wait!”
Gary Holt states, “I am very excited to announce Exodus will be joining Suicidal Tendencies and the mighty Slayer in May for a short trip ending at the Rock on the Range! Double duty will have never been so much fun! Looking forward to this one in a big way! Let the mayhem begin!”
