The Summer Slaughter Tour was last staged in 2019, but has been hiatus since the pandemic put a pause on the annual outing, which began in 2007.

“It’s an absolute honor to be back on the Summer Slaughter tour,” stated Veil of Maya guitarist Marc Okubo. “This tour has been responsible for some of my favorite memories of playing music and some of my greatest friendships. This year’s lineup is amazing and I can’t wait to share the stage with these incredible bands.”

Brand of Sacrifice singer Kyle Anderson added, “We’re so excited to introduce the new age of Summer Slaughter this year with Veil of Maya and this truly awesome lineup of bands! Back in 2019 we were the first band on the bill, so it’s a bit surreal to be here at the top, bringing in the new era of the tour with our first ever full headline set.”

The Summer Slaughter Tour has long served as a showcase for extreme metal acts, with past headliners including Necrophagist, The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, Cannibal Corpse, and more.

Tour creator Ash Avildsen, whose also the CEO of Sumerian Records, stated, “This tour has been crucial year after year for breaking new artists as well as elevating the headline status of established acts. I’m thrilled to be able to bring it back with such a youthful lineup, grateful for all the fans who have stuck by the brand and excited for the new generation to experience the tour for the first time.”


Meanwhile, Veil of Maya are currently supporting Nothing More and Wage War on a spring US tour. Tickets for that outing are available here.
