Renowned thrash metal band Slayer is scheduled to reunite for a headline performance at the Louder Than Life festival in Kentucky, set to take place in September 2024. This event marks Slayer’s return to the stage after their farewell in 2019, concluding over three decades of prominent presence in the thrash metal genre.

Slayer To Reform

Danny Wimmer, the festival promoter, shared details about the reunion:

Primordial General Mayhem

Primordial Radio is hugely excited to announce the return of the Primordial General Mayhem 2024 with dynamic and hard-hitting five-piece retro-rockers THE TREATMENT headlining the Friday night.

Fresh from their massively successful tour with Buckcherry, they are set to deliver an electrifying performance with one of their biggest-ever headline shows to date. Joining them are the Brighton-based punk-rock aficionados THE BAR STOOL PREACHERS, alongside energetic South Wales rockers JAMES & THE COLD GUN and hard rock sensations FURY, who made a remarkable impression last year by drawing an overwhelming crowd to the festival’s smaller stage.
