Slayer, Lamb Of God and Behemoth have announced a joint North American tour for this summer.
The dates will get underway on July 7 in Minnesota and wrap up at Phoenix’s Comercia Theatre on August 20.
The news was confirmed by Loudwire, who also released a video of Slayer’s Kerry King speaking about the dates.
King goes on to say: “As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it. Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start.
“That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends – bands as well as fanatical fans. Let the festivities begin!”
Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe reports: “It’s been a while since we’ve toured with the almighty Slayer – and even longer since we’ve hit the road with our friends in Behemoth. I can’t wait.”
Behemoth leader Nergal reports he is proud to hit the road with Slayer and Lamb Of God, and adds: “We are beyond excited to be joining this bill with these living legends and our friends one more time.
“We are also stoked about coming back to North American shores for the last time before kicking off the next album cycle. Come and join this extreme metal feast with us!”
