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.
