In support of Repentless, the band's 12th studio album and its career-highest chart debut, SLAYER will launch 2016 by pillaging and marauding its way across North America, headlining some two-dozen dates over a five-week period. With Special Guests TESTAMENT and CARCASS on all dates, the tour starts on February 19 in Chicago and wraps up in Las Vegas on March 26. Confirmed dates are below. SLAYER's Fan Club pre-sale begins today at 12NOON local time, details are at http://slatanicwehrmacht.com/. Ticket presales begin tomorrow, Friday, December 4 at 10AM local time, and the public onsale commences Saturday, December 5 at 10AM local time.

For this tour, SLAYER is offering several different limited-availability VIP packages that will include premiums such as watching SLAYER's entrance and first three songs from right onstage, access to the band's normally off-limits soundcheck, autographed collectibles, and a variety of custom VIP swag. Log onto SLAYER's Facebook for all VIP packages and ticketing details.

Twenty-fifteen has proven to be a pretty darned good year for SLAYER. Ignoring the odds and naysayers, the band - Kerry King/guitars, Tom Araya/bass, vocals, Paul Bostaph/drums, and touring guitarist Gary Holt - wrote, recorded and released its first album since the death of founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman, and their first with producer Terry Date. Repentless sounds like a SLAYER album...a sonic assault of brutal, ominous, lightening-fast and heavy-as-hell music, with lyrics that unmask what SLAYER knows best - the terror, the corruption and the societal turmoil that dominates our world. As a member of The Big Four, SLAYER didn't just help define the thrash-metal genre, SLAYER defines an attitude.

For this upcoming tour, fans can expect to hear many of their favorite SLAYER songs selected from the band's 30-plus year discography, as well as a few of the brand new ones. As the Austin Chronicle put it about one of SLAYER's recent shows, "[It was] one hundred minutes of just plain pummel...the group delivered fast, hard, no-frills bludgeon."
