KRAGEN LUM Doesn’t Know Anything About SLAYER, ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT And EXODUS Touring Together

HEATHEN guitarist and EXODUS fill-in member Kragen Lum has refuted rumors that the latter will be joining SLAYER on their final North American tour this fall/winter, also to be supported by ANTHRAX and TESTAMENT.

When asked on Facebook by an EXODUS fan if there was any truth to these four bands touring together, Lum ‒ who fills in for Gary Holt whenever SLAYER and EXODUS both have live appearances taking place at the same time ‒ stated, “I have not heard anything official.”

Lum‘s comments come less than a week after it was announced that Live Nation would be sponsoring a three-or-four package U.S. tour featuring SLAYER, though it’s not clear if it will actually be the one that guitarist Kerry King apparently talked to an “anonymous tipster” about, nor is it known if it will feature either ANTHRAX, TESTAMENT or EXODUS as the opening act.

SLAYER ‒ who, over a year agoannounced their plans to “make its exit” with one, final world tour ‒ will continue touring worldwide throughout this year, including the U.S. with LAMB OF GODAMON AMARTH and CANNIBAL CORPSE, and will be making numerous festival appearances in Europe, Australia, Asia and South America.
