The end of thrash legends Slayer has been a very long goodbye but it may not actually be over after they play their “final” show this month.
The band’s manager, Rick Sales, says in a new interview that the end of them touring may not be the end of them as a band.
In an interview with Mass Live, the manager is hinting they could carry on while defending their choice to make their farewell tour two years long.
“The band has always had a lot of integrity. There are a couple things that go on. I totally get that they made a decision to stop touring. That doesn’t mean the end of the band. It’s just the end of touring. I always thought of it as, ‘you go out on top.’ They made that decision. They’re not milking it. From that standpoint, I get it and they made the right choice,” says Sales.
