It is with great regret that Slayer announces the postponement of its “Canadian Carnage” tour with Megadeth, which was due to begin on November 8. In addition, the band announces the postponement of its appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which had been set for this Wednesday, November 4. More information will be released shortly regarding the rescheduling of the Canadian dates, as well as the ‘Kimmel’ appearance.

Slayer’s Tom Araya is currently under the care of a specialist for a back injury, thought to be related to his on-stage activity, and the physician has ordered an immediate surgical procedure to take place in Texas tomorrow (Tuesday) morning.

“What is foremost in our minds right now is that Tom do whatever he needs to to get this taken care of,” said Slayer’s Kerry King. “While all four of us are disappointed that we won’t be able to see through all of our commitments set for the next few weeks, the most important thing is Tom’s health. We thank the fans in Canada and here in L.A., the Megadeth camp, and everyone associated with ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ for their understanding. We look forward to seeing you all soon.”

Slayer’s Kerry King, Jeff Hanneman and Dave Lombardo are looking forward to meeting their fans at a previously announced in-store appearance this Wednesday, November 4 at 3:30PM at the Hot Topic store located at the Hollywood and Highland complex.

Slayer’s World Painted Blood is released today, November 3. :rocker:

Nymag.com: What's popular in metal right now that you wish would die?

King: There seems to be a plentiful amount of metal bands that are like, religious, so to speak. Personally, for me, it's an odd thing … bands that are doing metal, but they're singing, like, Jesus metal. And I don't mean STRYPER. When I hear them I'm like, "Oh they're one of them Jesus bands." It's enough of a distaste to me that I don't even want to hear it.


Kerry King confirmed for Stryper fan.

I'm getting a passport this winter so I might be able to make the Toronto date depending on when they reschedule it for.
