Half of the big four are hitting the road together, as thrash heavyweights Slayer and Anthrax have announced a tour along with fellow thrash vets Death Angel. While there's no NYC date (the closest thing are a couple of PA dates) the tour is pretty extensive, and will have them on the road for much of September and October. Tickets for the whole tour go on Slayer fan club pre-sale Tuesday (5/10) at 10 AM and on sale to the general public Friday (5/13) at 10 AM. There's more info on the pre-sale here.

One of the dates for Slayer, Anthrax and Death Angel is at the Rock Allegiance Festival in Chester, PA. Going down on September 17-18, the fest will b headlined by Avenged Sevenfold and Alice in Chains and promises "gourmet man food." The lineup also features Baroness, Ghost, The Cult, and mostly lame bands like Breaking Benjamin and Cheville. Tickets are on sale. Full lineup below.

Both Slayer and Anthrax have been busy in the past year. Slayer finished touring with Carcass and Testament, and Anthrax had a massive tour of their own with Lamb of God, Power Trip and Deafheaven. Anthrax's Scott Ian and Charlie Benante have also found themselves at the center of the Phil Anselmo controversy.

All dates listed, along with the lineup for Rock Allegiance Fest and recent music videos from the three touring bands, below.
