The Summer Slaughter Tour — the annual travelling celebration of heavy metal music — will return to the road this summer for the first time since 2019.

Posts via the tour's social media accounts confirm Summer Slaughter will tour throughout the United States and Canada this July and August.

The 2024 lineup and tour itinerary will be revealed April 22, and in the meantime, it seems organizers have served up a guessing game for headbangers wondering who is involved.

A post from the Summer Slaughter Instagram account features eight different flags, leading fans to speculate that each corresponds with an act in the 2024 lineup. Notably, the provincial flag of Ontario appears in the upper right of the graphic.

Until the big reveal, you can pore over the flag teaser and key dates below.

The Summer Slaughter Tour's 2019 lineup featured Cattle Decapitation, Carnifex, the Faceless, Rivers of Nihil, Nekrogoblikon, Lorna Shore and Brand of Sacrifice. Revisit Exclaim!'s review of the Toronto tour stop at the Opera House.
