Tomorrow, May 2nd, marks the one year anniversary of the passing of SLAYER’s founding member, guitarist Jeff Hanneman. The good folks at have launched their #ScreamForJeff campaign, where “the idea is that on May 2nd, no matter where you live, no matter what time zone, there will not be one moment that passes where someone isn’t yelling ‘SLAYER!’ or hearing someone else yell ‘SLAYER!’ – creating a worldwide echo chamber.” Follow SLAYER members Tom Araya & Gary Holt’s example – plus an assortment of other metalheads! - and watch details here: We hope you'll follow their lead and tell your friends to do the same. Last week, the two-time Grammy-winning SLAYER announced that their new studio album, tentatively set for an early 2015 release, will be released worldwide exclusively on Nuclear Blast Records through the band’s own label imprint, whose name has yet to be announced. ABOUT SLAYER: The Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot wrote that the five-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning SLAYER is "one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre." Their membership in "The Big Four" - Metallica, SLAYER, Megadeth, and Anthrax, the four bands that defined the thrash metal genre - secures their place in music history. Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that SLAYER brings to its live shows, having been named "Best Live Band" by numerous media outlets including Revolver, SPIN, and Metal Hammer. With songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society - God's terrifying global genocide, the chaos of our broken political system, chemical warfare, the hideous minds of serial killers, and the way-too-close proximity of world horrors that technology has brought us – SLAYER remains crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the mainstream. ABOUT NUCLEAR BLAST RECORDS: Independently owned for 27 years and counting, Nuclear Blast Records is synonymous with the worldwide advancement of heavy metal, extreme music, and hard rock. Founded in Donzdorf, Germany in 1987 by Markus Staiger, Nuclear Blast boasts a roster of over 100 bands representing eighteen countries. Their satellite office in Los Angeles has helped build the label’s trusted global reputation with numerous Billboard album chart entries, high-profile tours, and continual signings of new & heritage acts.
