As tickets are about to go on sale for Belfast, Slayer release free download track

RIGHT - you're all up for the scramble to get tickets to see Slayer for June 30th at the Limelight1 when they go on sale tomorrow. Just to get you in the mood they've released new song 'Implode' as a free download on Slayer.net.

And the band have signed a new worldwide deal on Nuclear Blast, ending a 28-year relationship with Rick Rubin and American Recordings.

The new track has been released as a 'thank you' to fans for their continued support. Kerry King explained: you have been waiting for us, now we are delivering for you.”

Registered members of Slayer’s fan club were sent an email right around midnight giving them the link to the song and a chance to hear it before it was made public. 'Implode' can now be downloaded here.

The relationship with Nuclear Blast will see Slayer create their own label imprint; a name for which has yet to be decided.

Slayer sold out last year's shows in the Limelight1, at a time when many questioned whether they'd be recording again. Today's announcement also comes with news that the band are getting down to recording new material for a 2015 album release.

Tickets to the 30th June Limelight1 Slayer show go on sale at 9am tomorrow from Katy's bar and Ticketmaster
