Slayer have revealed that they are working on a new album.

The band's drummer Dave Lombardo posted a very brief message on his Twitter account to announce the news, simply writing:

SLAYER is writing a new record.


However, Lombardo didn't divulge any other information about the new material, meaning fans are still in the dark about a prospective title or release date.

In June, Slayer announced that they would be postponing work on a new studio album until guitarist Jeff Hanneman had recovered from a flesh-eating disease.

Hanneman contracted necrotizing fasciitis in February after he had suffered a severe spider bite, leading singer Tom Araya to declare: "There's no way we'd go into a studio without him. As a band we're not going to do something without him... We require his musical skills, his writing skills.

“He's an integral part of the band. So we're going to hold off until he's at 100 percent and can join that process and be part of it."

Earlier this month, Slayer were announced as the 2012 headliners of All Tomorrow's Parties offshoot festival I'll Be Your Mirror along with Guided By Voices and Mogwai.
