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, drummer Paul Bostaph and guitarist Gary Holt who continues to fill in for fallen Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman – and 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). Fan club members will receive an email with instructions for ticket purchasing. Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday, June 27 at 10:00AM (local time) – log onto www.slayer.net for all ticket purchasing details.

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!

EXODUS – the originators of the thrash metal genre – return to their roots. As announced yesterday via Loudwire, EXODUS proudly welcomes the return of frontman Steve “Zetro” Souza in the wake of former vocalist Rob Dukes’ amicable departure. Souza originally fronted EXODUS from 1986-1993, and again from 2002-2004, donning the mic on classic records like Pleasures of the Flesh, Fabulous Disaster, Impact is Imminent, Good Friendly Violent Fun, and Force of Habit. Souza also appeared on 2004’s Tempo of the Damned.

In a statement, guitarist Gary Holt says, “As a band, we all had to make a very difficult choice to part ways with Rob Dukes. We have nothing but love and admiration for him and the deepest gratitude for the hard work he has put in and the great work on some killer records. But at this time, Tom, Lee, Jack and myself thought a change was necessary and the unanimous choice going forward was to welcome back Steve Souza to the fold!”

Returning vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza adds, “I spent a great part of my life with EXODUS, that blood flows through me, even not being in the band for the past 10 years, you can’t erase that chemistry. I’m very excited!”

EXODUS are currently working on their eleventh studio album in Northern California with producer Andy Sneap, set to release later this year with Nuclear Blast. Things are moving along smoothly… stay tuned for more details coming soon.

On August 10th, EXODUS will perform at Heavy Montreal at Parc Jean-Deapeau in Montreal, QC with Slayer, Lamb of God, Hatebreed and more.
