music news 23/01/2018

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 GodAnthraxBehemoth 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.
