Slayer Expands Fall Tour Schedule

Following a summer of storming through Europe, South America, and Mexico while topping the bills at solo shows and major festivals, Slayer will headline its first North American tour in two years.

The five-week-plus trek will kick off on October 22nd in Anchorage, Alaska, oddly enough marking the first time the band has played there since October 23rd, 1996. The tour will include the band's previously announced return to New York's Theatre at Madison Square Garden and the Hollywood Palladium, venues the band hasn't performed at in 25 years.

Slayer - Tom Araya/bass vocals, guitarist Kerry King, drummer Paul Bostaph, and guitarist Gary Holt, who continues to fill in for the late founding member Jeff Hanneman - will have Gojira and 4ARM support on all dates.

While still recovering from the devastating loss of Jeff Hanneman, Araya and King have begun to work on new material and hope to spend some time in the studio prior to this tour.

With more dates to be announced, confirmed dates for Slayer's 2013 Fall North American tour are as follows: More...

Gojira Albums To See Vinyl Re-Issue

By popular demand, Prosthetic Records will soon issue gatefold double-LP editions of the two albums that rocketed the French quartet Gojira from the European underground to international stardom.

“From Mars To Sirius” and “The Way Of All Flesh” will be released on vinyl on August 27th, 2013. Pre-orders are available now at this location.

Originally issued overseas in 2005, “From Mars To Sirius," released by Prosthetic in 2006, and never before available on LP in North America, was the Western Hemisphere’s formal introduction to Gorjia. One of MetalSucks’ Top 10 “best metal albums of the 21st Century so far,” the album was supported by U.S. tours with the likes of Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Machine Head, Behemoth, and Amon Amarth. The gatefold 2LP set will be available in three 180-gram variants: “Eco-Green” (600 copies), “Mars Red” (200 copies) and “Sea Blue” (200 copies), the latter two of which are mail-order exclusives.

Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, DevilDriver, Fear Factory), the follow-up was “The Way Of All Flesh” (2008). The band’s first release to crack the Billboard Top 200, the album — which features a guest appearance by Lamb of God front man Randy Blythe — was supported by tours with In Flames and All That Remains, in addition to a month touring North American arenas with Metallica. The gatefold 2LP set marks the first time in three years that the album will be available on vinyl, and it will be offered in two new variants: 180-gram clear (500 copies), and a mail-order exclusive, standard-weight blue/white split vinyl (500 copies).

Car Bomb Joins Gojira On Tour

New York experimental metal exhibitionists Car Bomb have officially come out of hiding in a big way, having just joined Gojira on a short run of dates that commenced on Thursday in New York City. The festivities continue tonight in Worcester at The Palladium and will trample its way back through Manhattan to Detroit, Chicago, Milwaukee and Cleveland.

Comments the band: “We are beyond excited to be doing this string of dates with the mighty Gojira. It is an honor.” Dates are:

8/13/2012 The Palladium – Worcester, MA
8/14/2012 The Studio @ Webster Hall – New York City, NY
8/15/2012 Pike Room – Detroit, MI
8/16/2012 The Bottom Lounge – Chicago, IL
8/19/2012 Rave Bar – Milwaukee, WI
8/20/2012 Peabody’s – Cleveland, OH

Car Bomb recently unleashed the new single “Third Revelation,” which features guest vocalist Joseph Duplantier of Gojira. The track will be on new album "w^w^^w^w." Check it out the song at this location.

The following press release was also issued about the band: "Whether chopping a riff into pieces, reversing it, cutting it short, or messing with the tempo, Car Bomb’s unique style of progressive metal is the product of dissecting ideas and beating them to death. The result is equivalent to a jet engine propelling gravel into your skull. Car Bomb combines the polyrhythmic and mathematical madness of Meshuggah and Dillinger Escape Plan with the rage and energetic fury of Coalesce and Converge. Though their songs are musically challenging, Car Bomb refuse to dilute their ruthless execution. Their intent is to assault the listener in any and every way possible – compositionally, sonically, and lyrically."
