Sure I’ve lined out that Monday is often the big day for touring cycles to be announced but nowadays it seems like Tuesday wants to be known for more than being about tacos. That being said, check out this latest announcement from the handlers of the legendary Napalm Death.

When I announced the performer lineup for the 2019 “ShipRocked” Cruise (seen HERE), a lot of Metalheads were wondering just what in the heck was going on with the announcement for the 2019 “70K Tons Of Metal” excursion since that usually came up in July. Well, as the saying goes “it’s better late than never” as the first details and bands have been lined out. Read on down below.

It was only back in late January that we helped share the news about the mighty and very legendary Thrash Metal band Slayer who announced that they would be embarking on their final tour before calling it a career. If you missed that first announcement, please click HERE to be up to speed and for shame if you aren’t already aware of this news. Early today, the band announced that by popular demand a second leg of dates will expand upon the domination. Read on below the poster for their statement and the additional dates. I’ll return at the close with some editorial insight.
Literally by popular demand – with more than half the tour dates already either completely sold out or a sell-out imminent – today Slayer announces Leg Two, North America, of its final world tour, set to kick off on Thursday, 7/ 26 at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH. The tour will travel to 20 cities over about five weeks, culminating at San Jose’s SAP Center on 8/ 26. Lamb of God, Anthrax, Testament and Napalm Death will accompany the band on all dates. The general ticket on sale for most dates begins this Friday, March 9 at 10AM (local). Very limited Slayer onstage + Meet & Greet + exclusive merchandise packages will be available. Log on to www.slayer.net for all ticket and package purchasing information.
A second North American leg for this tour had been considered to take place at some point down the line, but within 48-hours of the initial January 26 ticket on sale date, that all changed.
The tour announcements for the upcoming 2016 year keep on coming in and methinks they’re all aiming to utilize any holiday monies you bring in for their own heavy natured purposes. The latest one to zap into the email wished us to inform the Metal Legions about the Spring pairing of Grindcore legends Napalm Death and the influential Punk Rock band The Melvins. I’ve embedded the official poster, press statement and tour dates for you below and then shall return to offer up my thoughts.
The Press Release:
NAPALM DEATH and THE MELVINS join forces for the Savage Imperial Death March Tour, a six-week Spring trek that that kicks off on March 26 at The Marquee in Phoenix, Arizona.
