Slayer‘s new guitarist Gary Holt was pictured at one of the band’s recent gigs wearing a t-shirt bearing the phrase ‘Kill The Kardashians’ on the front.
The US thrash-metal band performed at the Paramount venue in Long Island, New York on Tuesday (June 16), with Holt wearing the controversial item of clothing for the group’s headline set. See an image of the t-shirt below.

Holt first performed with Slayer in 2011, joining the band fully following the death of founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Hanneman died in May 2013 from alcohol-related cirrhosis of the liver.
The band recently confirmed they are set to release a new album, ‘Repentless’, which 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.
