Slayer’s Dave Lombardo Confirms 2012 EP Release
While on the black carpet of the Revolver Golden Gods Awards, Metal Injection had a chance to speak with PHILM, the side project of Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo. At the end of the conversation, Lombardo was asked when fans could expect new music from Slayer and he confirmed that there will be a new EP of tunes out before the band hits the road this summer on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival.
Slayer’s most recent album, World Painted Blood, was released in 2009.
