Slayer, Anthrax confirm UK dates

Slayer and Anthrax have confirmed seven UK dates in November with support from Kvelertak.

The first shows of their European tour were announced last week, with more to follow.

Slayer are gearing up for the launch of 11th album Repentless on September 11 – it’s their first without co-founding guitarist Jeff Hanneman. Kerry King recently revealed to Metal Hammer that the band’s relationship with longtime producer Rick Rubin had ended when they were offered an “insulting” deal for the release.

Anthrax are currently working on what will be their 11th album.

UK tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
