Slayer calls it quits after 37 years, announces one last tour

I know that AITH in a horror movie website and Slayer is not a horror movie, but I'm still pretty sure that plenty of our readers love the band as much as I do. And thus I bring to you the sad news...

Slayer is calling it quits after 37 years. The band broke the news on Facebook this morning. But the silver lining is that they plan to do one final world tour before hanging up the thrash forever.

Below you can check out the official announcement, along with newly posted tour dates. After that make sure to hit us up and let us know your favorite Slayer song in the comments below or on social media!

Announcement via Facebook:

The end is near...


After making some of the most brutal, breathtakingly aggressive, all-hell’s-a-breaking-loose music ever created, playing nearly 3000 concerts in all corners of the world, receiving countless awards, gracing hundreds of magazine covers, experiencing the devastating loss of a founding brother, and even appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the age of Slayer, one of the greatest thrash/ metal/punk bands of this or any age, is coming to an end.

Slayer will do one last concert tour around the globe to thank their fans for all of their support over the years, for making the last three-and-a-half decades so packed with good times and unforgettable experiences, and will then move on.

Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament will support Slayer on the first leg, North America, of its final world tour. 

Very limited Slayer onstage + meet & greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available.
