The band made an announcement this morning, saying: “Slayer to tour the world one more time…,” and they confirmed on their official website that they will embark on what will be their final U.S. tour this summer, with support from Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament. We’ll keep you posted as official tour dates come to light.
