Slayer delays album release
Slayer’s new album “God Hates Us All”, originally set to hit stores on July 10th has been pushed back to a late August release date. Slayer’s publicist issued a statement yesterday explaining the delay.
The band has pushed back the release to put some finishing touches on the new album and to make sure the artwork is exactly the way they want it. Producer Rick Rubin will also return to the studio to remix some of the tracks. The album will be released on Rubin’s own label, American Recordings.
Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman promises, “It’ll be worth the wait”.
In the mean time, fans can hear material
from the forth-coming album on the Extreme Steel Tour that kicks off today
(June 14th). The tour is being headlined by Pantera and also features Static-X,
Morbid Angel and Skrape.
