SLAYER release 7″ vinyl pic disc for Record Store Day

SLAYER are set to unveil their first new track in nearly a year by way of Record Store Day on 18th April.

‘When The Stillness Comes’, plus a 2014 live recording from Wacken Open Air of ‘Black Magic’ (from the band’s 1983 album, ‘Show No Mercy’) will be available as a limited edition (5000 copies only) 7″ vinyl picture disc (images attached) via Nuclear Blast Records.  The platter will be exclusively available at all participating independent record stores worldwide.  Point your mouse at for a full list of stores involved.

SLAYER (Tom Araya, Kerry King & Paul Bostaph) recorded ‘When The Stillness Comes’ last year in Los Angeles with super-producer, Terry Date.  The band are currently in the final stages of recording what will be their first new album since 2009’s Grammy-nominated ‘World Painted Blood’ opus, with the new release expected for an Autumn release via Nuclear Blast.
