Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, Testament to support Slayer on the North American leg of the band’s final world tour

– January 23rd, 2018 –

Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament, all bands who have close ties to and have shared the stage multiple times with the band over the years, will accompany Slayer on leg one, North America, of what will be its final world tour. The trek starts May 10 when a 26-date odyssey will have them crisscrossing the country, from San Diego to Toronto, Orlando to Minneapolis. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, January 26; log onto slayer.net for all ticketing info.

If you are lucky enough to be invited to play even just once with living legends like Slayer, it’s an incredible honor. Slayer gave Lamb Of God our very first two overseas shows. Slayer has subsequently taken us on several full-length tours, both at home and abroad. The guys in Slayer and their crew have also always been very, very cool to our band. It is irrefutable that Slayer helped create the genre of aggressive metal, and all modern bands of that ilk owe them a huge debt – I know we do. To be asked to be a part of their final tour – well, it just makes you stop and realize just how lucky you are. Hail Slayer! We’ll see you on the road…” – Randy Blythe, Lamb Of God

It’s truly an honor to be on Slayer’s final tour,” said Anthrax‘s Frank Bello. “Anthrax and Slayer have toured together for decades, we are family, band and crew, so we want to help give Slayer the best send-off possible, and to have one last blast with our friends. But you know, at the end of the day, Slayer will never die.

Well, well, well…the dream comes true AGAIN it seems. Behemoth will be teaming up with mighty Slayer again for another extensive American run later this year! Nothing short of epic if you ask me! I cannot wait to confront American legions again before we unleash the new record. One of the biggest metal tours this year: Testament, Behemoth, Anthrax, Lamb Of God and Slayer. Can you miss it out? FUCK NO!” – Nergal, Behemoth

Sharing the stage with Slayer once again is going to be an honor, and to be a part of the final tour is going to be a special privilege for us. Slayer has influenced so many aggressive bands in their career. This tour will be an epic time for all who attend. Do yourself a favor and clear your calendars when this show comes to town. This will be your last chance to see a tour like this. Get ready North America for the devastation.” – Chuck Billy, Testament

Ministry Frontman Al Jourgensen Discusses Sexual Harassment

In the latest in a series of videos posted online by Nuclear Blast, Ministry frontman and founder Al Jourgensen has weighed in on the high profile claims of sexual harassment. Like former U.S. Senator Al Franken, Jourgensen admits he’s done things that he’s not proud of. “But you grow, you learn, you listen,” he says. Jourgensen has taken an objective look at some of his actions from the past that he didn’t consider sexist at the time, but, today’s raised awareness has given him a fresh perspective.

“Now it’s time for the men to buck up and start thinking,” he says. “We’ve slated our society to be exploitative and men have been rewarded by this system, but now, we’re starting to think.

“It’s not going to be an overnight thing, but at least start thinking. ‘Ok, I remember this party back, maybe 10 years ago where I did…yeah…I see that that was weird, I can see where I could have possibly weirded someone out…’ just that is a step forward. Just for a man to think ‘you know what? That was fucked up.’ That’s a step forward and that’s where we need to be and that’s what these discussions that are happening right now are doing…hopefully.”
