Slayer have just announced another leg of farewell North American tour dates. Adding to their already announced May and June shows, Slayer will be extending their run into July and August with another massive string of arena and amphitheater gigs.

On Slayer’s second leg of shows, Lamb of God, Anthrax and Testament will remain as opening acts, while Napalm Death will be added to replace Behemoth, who are confirmed for the entirety of Leg One.

“After 35 years, it’s time to like, collect my pension,” frontman Tom Araya said in an interview from 2016. He spoke about his priorities shifting since he became a family man, although playing live still gave him incredible energy. “I like singing and just spitting that shit out and convincing everybody that this guy is a fucking maniac. It’s like acting. You feel the lyrics and you show them with your facial expressions, your body expressions, your intensity — I love that shit.”
