Australian thrash metal export 4ARM has announced an extensive North American tour with the legendary Slayer, set to commence this month in Las Vegas, Nev. Direct support on the five-week-plus trek will come from French extreme metal act Gojira. A promotional video for the tour can be seen on YouTube at: http://youtu.be/0A6XiQmtGBk.

 

When asked about the opportunity to tour with one of 4ARM’s greatest influences, drummer Michael Vafiotis commented: “It’s no secret we have been hugely influenced by Slayer ever since we picked up our instruments, and now to actually be given the opportunity to tour with the band that I’ve personally grown up listening to for over to 15 years is beyond my wildest dreams. All I can say is that I can’t wait to get back to North America and “SLAY” the hell out of what will be the biggest tour of our careers to date.”

4ARM is touring in support of its third studio album, 2012’s Submission for Liberty, which released on Rising Records.

 

The band has since released two music videos, “Raise a Fist”: http://youtu.be/K_B9Vr2_HaQ and “Submission for Liberty”: http://youtu.be/TbR7q0GiZ_0.

4ARM has been playing pure, straight-up thrash metal since 2004, becoming more distinctive, aggressive and explosive with each release since its debut album 13 Scars in 2005.

 

The group has already played alongside and toured with the likes of Metallica, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Anthrax, Machine Head, Testament and more, and will add to this already prestigious list this fall.
