Slayer/Anthrax add Revolution Rock Fest in CT and Aftershock Fest in CA to tour

Slayer
Slayer in Chicago in February (more by James Richards IV)

We’ve already mentioned that Slayer and Anthrax are touring together (also with Death Angel) and playing a bunch of festivals with lineups that range from kind of lame to kind of cool. Well, another couple of those festivals have been announced.

The first and closest to NYC is Revolution Rock Fest, which goes down on September 17 at Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, CT. In addition to Slayer and Anthrax, this one also includes Ghost and lots of stuff you probably want to avoid (like Chevelle). Tickets go on presale (password: revolution) on Wednesday (6/8) at 10 AM.

The cooler of the two Slayer/Anthrax festivals is the west coast Aftershock Fest, which happens on October 22-23 in Sacramento. That one features Tool, Meshuggah, Deafheaven, Primus, Baroness, Ghost, Face to Face, Puscifer, Max and Igor Cavalera, Silver Snakes, The Shrine, Ignite, American Sharks, Whores and many more (and also Chevelle) (and other avoidable stuff like Disturbed, who will hopefully play their Simon & Garfunkel cover). Tickets for that one also go on sale Wednesday.
