SLAYER is expected to announce the very last U.S. leg of its final tour later this month. The trek will take place in the fall and will put a cap on the band’s nearly four-decade career.
A teaser for the final tour announcement was released earlier today in the form of an ominous video featuring a silhouetted man digging dirt with a shovel and staking a large cross into the ground to mark the spot.
An audio track consisting of a man speaking in a deep, measured voice accompanies the clip.
He states: “To every story, there is a tragedy. Life is a book filled with chapters. Some tell stories of a good time, some tell stories of the dark. To every monster, there’s a hero. To every nightmare, we all wake up. To every story, there’s a final chapter. Some monsters can become human. Other monsters reap for revenge. This is the end of the monsters.”
Now comes the surprise, rumors suggest PRIMUS and MINISTRY are supporting acts for the final tour.
This has lead to mixed response from the fans as they feel the support acts don’t carry the aggression.
PRIMUS bassist/vocalist Les Claypool broke the news of his band’s supporting Slayer, saying:
“There’s another thing too that’s kind of a secret, but maybe I can tell you now… So it looks like we’re confirmed — we’re gonna play the last, the very last run supporting SLAYER‘s very last tour; PRIMUS is… It’s starting at Madison Square Garden [in New York City] and ending at The Forum [in Los Angeles]. That’s the rumor.
