Unholy Alliance Dates - Slayer Recording
Wait, it does get better! Instead of shelling out a hundred bucks or more to sit through the latest crop of mallcore darlings (that bought their slot) waiting to get to the good stuff, the tickets for a full day of metal at the Unholy Alliance Tour will top out at $39.00.
According to Slayer's long-time manager Rick Sales, "We want to make The Unholy Alliance tour an annual global event, so we decided to be smart about the design from the beginning. We chose to book most of the tour's shows at indoor venues, as that allows the bands and the fans amenities like air conditioning and indoor bathrooms, as well as the very best stage lighting, production, and sound and less expensive concession prices. The few shows that will be played outside will be played at night in permanent facilities with our lighting, production, and so on. Everyone wins."
The wait is almost over for a new Slayer album as well. According to their publicist the original line up of the band (Tom Araya/bass, vocals, Kerry King/guitars, Jeff Hanneman/guitars, and Dave Lombardo/drum) have entered a Los Angeles-area studio to record their next studio album with Josh Abraham (Korn, Velvet Revolver, Atreyu) producing and Rick Rubin executive producing the effort.
"We're real happy to have Josh on the team," said Slayer's Jeff Hanneman. "He's a very creative and intuitive guy, he knows music, and he really gets who Slayer is and what wešre doing." The as yet untitled album will be released on Slayeršs long-time label, Rubin's American Recordings/Warner Bros. Records, and is expected out this fall.
