"International Day of Slayer", the annual heavy metal holiday that celebrates the uncompromising, loud and defiant music of the iconic thrash/punk/metal band SLAYER, is celebrating its 12th year today, 6/6/17. IDoS is the day where you stage a "Slay-out, Slay-in, Slay-on, Slay-off - don't go to school, don't go to work - but spend the day listening to SLAYER at nuclear blast level in your car, your home, or in the public place of your choice. True SLAYER devotees do NOT use headphones but crank the sound up as loud as possible so that EVERYONE within earshot can hear SLAYER.

To celebrate this year's IDoS, SiriusXM's Liquid Metal (Ch. 40) is playing SLAYER every hour from 12Midnight ET 6/6 through to 3AM ET 6/7, and the channel's Jose Mangin will be airing interviews with the band members. SiriusXM is also hosting a special contest where one winner + a guest will receive round trip air transportation to Las Vegas for SLAYER's August 4 show, plus two nights at a Vegas hotel, two tickets to the show, a meet'n'greet with members of SLAYER and $200 ground transportation. But this prize package just gets better: the winner will also score his or her very own Tom Araya Signature Bass TA-204 FRX model, PLUS the brand new Kerry King B.C. Rich signature guitar, the KKW30 model, which is not yet available in stores. Mangin will be on hand in Las Vegas as the winner's personal host/escort. Those interested in entering the contest should stay tuned to Liquid Metal, or can log onto www.slayer.net where all details will be posted shortly.

But wait, there's more. SLAYER will hit the road on July 12 for a 22-date North American tour with LAMB OF GOD and BEHEMOTH. For today only, ticket prices for every date on the tour have been slashed, so beginning at 6:06AM (local time) and before 11:59PM (local time), log onto www.slayer.net/tour and secure your place in the pit.

Now get out there and start blasting S-L-A-A-A-A-A-A-Y-E-R!!!!!!!!!
