Los Angeles, CA – October 28, 2010 — Wrapping up one of the most memorable years of the band’s career, SLAYER will make available a previously unreleased track, “Atrocity Vendor,” as part of a special limited-edition 7-inch single. Written by Kerry King, the track was recorded during the 2009 “World Painted Blood” sessions, and will be released on “Black Friday,” November 26, exclusively through Metal Club, the North American indie store consortium that works to connect the metal community with their local “brick and mortar” record stores.
“Atrocity Vendor” will be paired with the Tom Araya/Jeff Hanneman-penned track “World Painted Blood,” and released in a clear sleeve on a red vinyl disc. Go to http://www.mymetalclub.com/ to find a Metal Store record shop near you.
Slayer’s Twenty-Ten has indeed, been quite a year for the band and its fans, beginning with Tom Araya’s successful neck surgery that now has him pain-free, the group’s fourth Grammy nomination, the band’s co-headline “American Carnage” tour with Megadeth, the historical summer series of “Big Four” Sonisphere European concerts, and the recently completed “Jagermeister Fall Music Tour” that Slayer co-headlined with Megadeth and featured Anthrax, the first time in two decades that those three band shared an American stage.
Plans for the band’s 2011 are currently being confirmed, but look for more touring, more music, and more S-L-A-A-A-Y-E-R!!!!!
