Metal legend Slayer has just announced that they’ll be hitting the road this fall with fellow thrashers Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus. The three bands will kick things off on November 12 at the Fox Theatre in Oakland, CA. They’ll then head South, playing the Forum in L.A. and then the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix. The guys will then move on to shows in Oklahoma City, Texas, Florida, Atlanta and North Carolina. On November 25, they’ll arrive in the Northeast with a show at the Armory in Albany, followed by shows in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and New Jersey. They’ll play Cleveland on December 2 and then Indianapolis on December 4. The tour will finish up at the Fillmore in Detroit on December 5.
One of the “big four” of metal, Slayer has been a name carved into a variety of surfaces by rebellious teens for nearly three decades now. Over the years, they’ve released a dozen albums, four of which went to become certified gold. Suicidal Tendencies is considered a founding act of the sub-genre crossover thrash (which mixes metal and punk) and has been releasing music for over thirty years, despite the fact that its only permanent member has been singer Mike Muir. Exodus has been a staple of the American metal scene since the early 80s and has gone through numerous lineup changes and hiatuses while still managing to sell millions of records.
