Interesting update from SLAYER camp.
SLAYER manager Rick Sales has shared an interesting statement related to the future of the band.
This was revealed in a new interview with MassLive.com.
“The band has always had a lot of integrity.
“There are a couple things that go on. I totally get that they made a decision to stop touring. That doesn’t mean the end of the band. It’s just the end of touring. I always thought of it as, ‘You go out on top.’ They made that decision. They’re not milking it. From that standpoint, I get it and they made the right choice.”
Earlier Kristen Mulderig, who works with Rick Sales company, recently said that there will still be plenty of SLAYER-related activities even after the band stops performing live.
“We’re in legacy mode which is a lot to do, even though they won’t be making records or on the road. They still have their endorsers, there’s still merch and branding to do — sync licenses and who knows? Maybe coming up with some sort of event that is SLAYER-based. This is all stuff we’re thinking about and talking about. SLAYER lives on, absolutely.”
Slayer is on their final tour which is slated to end by this month. Slayer have sold millions of albums worldwide and toured the world for over the last 3 decades. The band has been playing a full 90-minute set that spanned their whole career. 20 songs packed in the middle of an all-out war on stage, as pyro, flames, and smoke are seen coming out of everywhere. The production is huge and you can see it in everyone’s face this was the Slayer farewell show they wanted, and this is the Slayer Show they got. A perfect goodbye to the home of Rock and Roll. Slayer forever.
