Slayer announce they'll be calling it quits after one final world tour in 2018
This morning Slayer have announced "the end is near". They've promised a "world tour" but are yet to give any indication on official tour dates.
However, they have told us who they'll be touring with: Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament. That's one mammoth line up.
Bit of a shock for Slayer fans, but the split has been coming for awhile. In 2016 frontman Tom Araya spoke in a interview about havign a young family and his priorities changing;
“After 35 years, it’s time to like, collect my pension,”
Fair enough mate.
