The Boontown Rats once told us that they didn’t like Mondays and like Garfield craving a big ole lasagna I am right there with them unless the Monday in question features news about an upcoming North American tour by the mighty Megadeth. Yep, that is just how my day progressed and I’ve copied the official press release for your own indulgence but will return afterwards to discuss it with you.

The onset of Winter is going to blaze as hot as the summer months if I can lay any predictions down and while I am not looking ahead into the Farmer’s Almanac for such information, I am instead referring to the press release that only moments ago hit my Metal Media Mailbox regarding Slayer’s 2014 Fall tour. The run will find these titans of Metal joined by both the Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus and you can check out the Official Press Release below the poster.
The Press Release:
LOS ANGELES, CA – Monday, June 23, 2014 – When Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus played a handful of dates together this past May, every date was sold out and fans experienced a night of some of the best metal on the planet. With reviews like “the best show in years that I’ve been blessed to witness,” “a metalhead’s dream come true,” and “…an onslaught of heart-pounding tunes during an evening full of awesome head banging action,” how could this trinity of thrash legends not join up again for a full-on road trip? So, with Scion proudly presenting, Slayer – Kerry King/guitars, Tom Araya/bass’vocals, drummer Paul Bostaph and guitarist Gary Holt – with special guests Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus, will hit the road this fall, kicking off November 12 in Oakland, CA, playing through to December. 5 in Detroit, MI. The confirmed itinerary is below.
Slayer fan club members are invited to take advantage of a ticket pre-sale that will begin this Wednesday, June 25 at 10AM (local time) and ends on Thursday, June 26 at 5:00PM (local time).

Said Slayer’s Tom Araya, “We are way fucking excited about hitting the road again with Suicidal and Exodus. Fucking intense. See you in the fall.” Added Mike Muir, Suicidal Tendencies’ vocalist, “Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies and Exodus, for only six shows? They were a blast, but everyone knew that wouldn’t be enough. Now’s your chance to see what everyone else was screaming about. ST definitely can’t wait ’til November to do it all again!” “This monumental tour is a heavy metal collision of epic proportions,” added Exodus vocalist Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza who has just rejoined the band. “For my first tour back with Exodus, I’m beyond excited to be on the road with my brothers in true thrash metal! I’m also looking forward to meeting and hanging out with all of the fans on this heavy as hell tour.” Continue reading Slayer Announces 2014 Tour w/Suicidal Tendencies & Exodus!!! \m/→
