Hmm, that’s kind of a nutty turnaround.
Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo confirmed to Metal Injection during the fourth annual Revolver Golden Gods awards that Slayer will release a new EP prior to taking part in this summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
Dave previously said the band was recording a new EP with three to four songs on it.
The EP will keep people interested while Slayer work on their next full-length disc.
“We’re going to do a three or four-song EP to keep the fans pacified until we come out with the full-length record,” Dave said. “Kind of like what we did with Psycopathy Red which was like a two-song 45.”
Lombardo claims nine songs have been written thus far for Slayer’s next album.
Who is psyched? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Frye?
