Press release:

Metalheads rejoice: North America's biggest thrash tour in 20 years is announced, as 1991's original American Clash of the Titans lineup - Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax will tour together once again on Leg Two of the American Carnage Tour. This trek kicks off September 24th at Verizon Wireless Theatre in Dallas, TX and will play 20 dates, including New York's Nassau Coliseum, concluding at Gibson Amphitheatre in Los Angeles on October 2st.

On Leg Two of American Carnage, Slayer will rip the roof off by performing its much-lauded 1990 Seasons In The Abyss album, while Megadeth will continue to roar through its landmark 1990 album Rust In Peace from front to back. Anthrax recently welcomed back singer Joey Belladonna, who defined the band during their heyday, and now permanently back in the band, will be front-and-center.

A special presale will launch this Wednesday, July 14th, and fans should log onto to www.slayer.net, www.megadeth.com or www.anthrax.com - to obtain the special code needed for the presale, and then go to www.ticketmaster.com (knoxvilletickets.com/ for the Knoxville date) to purchase tickets. The public on sale date will begin July 23rd in most markets. In the spirit of beating the recession, there will be special pre-sale discounts on all tickets in most markets (see below for more details), and, if that's not enough, a limited amount of $10 tickets will be available in many cities - log onto any of the bands' websites or onto Ticketmaster's site for those details.

But wait, there's even more. For Leg Two of the American Carnage tour, Megadeth has teamed up with iloveallaccess.com to provide fans with VIP experiences including priority venue access, meet and greets, parties, exclusive gifts and more. Logging onto www.megadeth.com will provide those details. Plus, fans who purchase their tickets online at either www.slayer.net or www.ticketmaster.com - will receive a free download of the live audio track 'War Ensemble', set to be included on Slayer's forthcoming, as yet unannounced, Live Intrusion DVD release.

Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax will kick off the second leg of the American Carnage tour on the heels of the historical Big Four Sonisphere Festival concerts they played with METALLICA in seven European cities this summer. The dates marked the first time that these four bands - acknowledged as the most influential bands the thrash metal genre - had shared a concert bill.

The original Clash of the Titans tour united the three forces of thrash metal for the entire summer of 1991, with then-little known ALICE IN CHAINS serving as the opener. This tour, which falls under the American Carnage banner, isn’t rewriting history; it’s writing a whole new chapter of headbanging history that is sure to delight fans new and old.

Slayer and Megadeth return to North America late this month to co-headline the east coast Canadian Carnage tour, and then starting August 11th, the first leg of the American Carnage tour (dates below) with TESTAMENT as Special Guest. The tour was originally scheduled for a winter 2010 run, but was postponed when Slayer bassist/vocalist Tom Araya was forced to undergo neck surgery. But as is the case for anything good in life, this tour was well worth the wait.
