BEHEMOTH To Spread The Apocalypse This Summer Supporting Slayer And Lamb Of God On North American Tour

There are many perilous ways one can spend time off – volcano-boarding down Cerro Negro, Nicaragua’s active volcano, or maybe bungee jumping from a helicopter over the bubbling crater of Chile’s Villarrica volcano. How about a visit to Sao Paulo’s Snake Island, home of some four-thousand golden lancehead vipers whose venom can melt human flesh, or shark diving without a cage in South Africa. But nothing is quite as hazardous or risky as a night in the pit at a Slayer concert. Add to that the ferociousness of Lamb Of God and BEHEMOTH, and you’ve got a Satan-approved triple bill of Biblical proportions.

The six-week expedition will rage across North America beginning July 12th in Bemidji, Minnesota, winding up in Phoenix, Arizona on August 20th. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 3rd. Log on to www.slayer.net/tour for all purchasing details.

Slayer’s Kerry King comments:”As metal tours go, this is the one that your fellow metalheads will be bragging about if you miss it! It’s 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!!”

Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe comments:”It’s been a while since we’ve toured with the almighty Slayer, and even longer since we’ve hit the road with our friends in BEHEMOTH. I can’t wait! This tour is gonna be the feel-good event of the Summer. The gigs are gonna be like the Haight-Ashbury during the Summer of Love in ’67! Ok, so that’s complete bullshit. It’s gonna be absolutely nothing like that, so don’t show up with flowers in your hair looking for free hugs or anything stupid like that. It will definitely be a good fucking time though — as long as your definition of a good time means brutal, caustic, and hideously loud music. See ya there!”

BEHEMOTH’s Adam “Nergal” Darski comments:”It is with the utmost pride we are announcing the Slayer, Lamb Of God, and BEHEMOTH Summer tour! We are beyond excited to be joining this bill with these living legends and our friends one more time! We are also stoked about coming back to North American shores for the last time before kicking off the next album cycle. Come and join this extreme metal feast with us!”
