Slayer To Launch Tour Behind God Hates Us All

Band kicks off trek October 29 in New Orleans.

Slayer will launch a month-long fall tour in support of their latest album on October 29 in New Orleans.

The metal deities will primarily play East Coast and Midwestern cities on the trek, which also heads through Canada for two shows, according to their spokesperson.

God Hates Us All, the band's most recent LP, was released in September.

Slayer — bassist/vocalist Tom Araya, guitarists Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman, and drummer Paul Bostaph — toured with Pantera over the summer (see "Pantera, Slayer Deliver Lesson In Brutality At Extreme Steel Kickoff"). They wrap the "Tattoo the Planet" European tour with Biohazard, Vision of Disorder and Cradle of Filth on Sunday.

Hatebreed will open for Slayer on the North American outing.
