The first leg of Slayer‘s 2016 North American tour commenced last month with a doubleheader at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago, featuring special tour guests and equally pummeling metallers Testament and Carcass. The trek, which sees Slayer violating ears with songs from their 30-plus year discography, runs through the end of the month in Last Vegas (see all remaining dates). New York’s only stop on the run went down in Port Chester at The Capitol Theatre last Wednesday night (3/2). Exclusive shots from the recent NY show continue below.
The speed metal legends are touring in support of their twelfth studio album Repentless, which they unleashed last September through Nuclear Blast. The band are planning to release an official video for their latest single, “You Against You,” very soon (watch a teaser trailer after the gallery). In addition, Araya, King, Holt and Bostaph will soon invade Europe for spring/summer headline shows and festival appearances beside similar giants like Iron Maiden, Anthrax and Megadeth (stay up-to-date).
Fellow label-mates Testament and Carcass are trekking in support of their new efforts, The Brotherhood of the Snake and Surgical Steel, respectively.
