LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Heavy metal icons Slayer announced that they are planning to take a final bow, but only after staging a farewell “world tour” later this year.
While no dates for the tour have been officially announced, Loudwire reported that the band has tapped Lamb of God, Anthrax, Behemoth and Testament for support on the run.
Slayer broke the news to their fans via a video posted the band’s website and social media that said: “The end of days is near. Slayer to make its exit with one final world tour.”

While some of the band’s fans may be surprised by the news, hints that Slayer was winding down are nothing new. In a 2016 interview Loudwire, Slayer frontman Tom Araya said, “After 35 years, it’s time to like, collect my pension,” noting that he’d like to spend more time with his family.
