Slayer, Lamb of God and Behemoth are teaming up for a triple-threat tour this summer, and they'll be making a couple of Western Canadian stops.
The bands will kick off their joint North American jaunt in Bemidji, MN, on July 12, eventually winding their way north of the border for shows in Dawson Creek, BC, on August 14 and in Fort McMurray, AB, on August 15.
In a statement, Slayer's Kerry King had this to say about the tour:
As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metal heads will be bragging about if you miss it! Not very often I get to go on tour where we are all friends to start. That being said, the potential for greatness at these events is mind blowing. I look forward to being a part of it, and hanging with old friends- bands as well as fanatical fans! Let the festivities begin!!
The full tour comes to a close on August 20 in Phoenix, AZ. See the complete list of upcoming dates listed below.
