Slayer have just announced details of a UK tour to take place in November. O2 Priority Tickets are available at 10am on June 3.
The metal band will play seven dates in total, starting at Newport Centre on November 21. The band will then play in Plymouth (22), Manchester (24), Glasgow (25), Birmingham (27), Leeds (28) and London (30).
Slayer recently confirmed they are set to release a new album – their first since the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman.
‘Repentless’ will be released on September 11 via Nuclear Blast. The record, which is the group’s 11th studio LP, was produced by Terry Date, who has worked with the likes of Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden and Bring Me The Horizon in the past.
Since Hanneman’s death, guitarist Kerry King has taken over main songwriting duties in the band. Hanneman died in May 2013 from alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver.
Slayer are regarded as one of the ‘Big Four’ thrash metal bands, along with Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax.
Between 1991 and 2004, Slayer sold more than 3.5 million albums in the United States alone.
The band have received five Grammy nominations, winning in 2007 for the song ‘Eyes of the Insane’ and in 2008 for ‘Final Six’.
Slayer are orignally from Huntington Park, in California, and formed in 1981.
The band were signed to Def Jam Recordings in 1986 by Rick Rubin, who then went on to produce their classic album ‘Reign In Blood’.
