Megadeth and Slayer are coming back to Canada to finish their touring business there in what has been dubbed "Canadian Carnage East." The five-date Canadian Carnage East kicks off on November 8 in Moncton, NB and wraps up in Toronto on November 13. The co-headlining tour will feature Machine Head and Suicide Silence, and will see Megadeth and Slayer alternating the closing spot. Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 18 at 10AM local time (see below for more ticketing info).

Megadeth and Slayer laid waste to four Canadian cities earlier this year when they joined up for the first "Canadian Carnage," marking the first time the bands had shared a stage anywhere in 18 years.

Expect both Slayer and Megadeth to perform classic favorites as well as brand-new material - Megadeth's 12th studio album, "Endgame," is scheduled for a September 15 release, while Slayer's "World Painted Blood," the band's 10th studio venture, will be released on November 3. Slayer will be performing "Psychopathy Red," from their new album, live on stage.
