Slayer is still touring behind last year's "Repentless," the first album made without guitarist Jeff Hanneman, who died in 2013 and was replaced by Gary Holt of Exodus. Tom Araya and Kerry King were also joined by Paul Bostaph, replacing Dave Lombardo.

The tour starts in Cleveland on Sept. 9.

Slayer's Kerry King stated, "It’s always super fun for us to tour with Anthrax. Frank [Bello] is one of my best friends in the biz!! Put that together with Death Angel, and fans will probably see the best package this year. See you there!"

"We are very excited to tour again with our fellow Kings Slayer on a thrash/metal extravaganza," said Anthrax's Charlie Benante. "Two of the Big Four - now that's a night of metal for all the Kings and Queens!"
