It’s a Christmas miracle, y’all.

Metal icons Slayer have just announced Leg 5: North America, the fifth leg of their final world tour, which includes more Texas dates.

Just in case you missed them in San Antonio earlier this year, 2019 is the year of redemption with chances to see the band with Lamb of God, Amon Amarth and Cannibal Corpse in El Paso on May 5, Edinburg on May 7 and Dallas on May 8.

"We are pleased to announce that the brutality continues with Lamb of God supporting Slayer on another leg of their farewell world tour!” said guitarist Mark Morton. “This is the real thing and is not one to miss. Heavy metal is alive and well and we can see it on the faces and hear it in the voices of the huge crowds filling arenas and amphitheaters everywhere we've been. It's been inspirational to see the energy and dedication of diehard Slayer fans turning out in huge numbers all over the world to support the kings of metal. For Lamb of God to have been so well received is an honor all its own and we are beyond grateful to join them for another round. Cheers!"

General ticket on sale begins on Friday, December 14 at 10 a.m. Lamb of God VIP side stage and VIP Merch upgrade packages will be available beginning Wednesday, December 13 at 10 a.m. via
