Slayer have announced that they will taking over San Diego Comic-Con International this year. First, the band will play an intimate show at the House Of Blue on July 21 (tickets on sale Friday here). Then, Slayer is partnering with their new publisher Dark Horse Comics for two exclusive signings within the event. These signings will take place Friday, July 22.
“Comic-Con?!? I can't believe they are gonna let us shred the HOB San Diego!! It will definitely be a night of fury and intensity that the city won't soon forget. We will be coming off a seven week European run, so Slayer's guns will be blazing!,” says Slayer's Kerry King.
Through a partnership with BMX Subrosa, Slayer will be offering the four bike Cradle To Grave collection, which contains the Slayer Balance, Slayer 20, Slayer 26, and the Slayer Urban Terrain Bike. Some of the models with be on display at Comic-Con at the Nuclear Blast Records booth before they are available worldwide in October.
“My brother, my friends and I used to ride bikes in the early seventies,” said Slayer's Tom Araya. “We built a figure-eight track with ramps in my backyard where we would race and crash into each other. It was a precursor to BMX. We would go around the neighborhood to collect bikes that people had thrown away to salvage them, so it's cool to see Subrosa building a line of Slayer bikes.”
