Not full two years since SLAYER played their last show, band’s guitarist Kerry King is already regretting their retirement.
In a new video congratulating MACHINE HEAD on their 30th anniversary as a band, King said: “Apparently, it’s [been] 30 years, which is quite an achievement. Not a lot of bands get there. We did, and then we quit too early.”
“F*ck us, I know,” he added “F*ck me. I hate f*cking not playing.”
SLAYER played its final show of their farewell tour in November 2019 at the Forum in Los Angeles. One day later, Kerry King ‘s wife, Ayesha King , said that there is “not a chance in hell” that the thrash metal icons will reunite for more shows.
Kristen Mulderig , who works with SLAYER ‘s management company, Rick Sales Entertainment Group , said that there will still be more stuff from the band in the future.
“We’re in legacy mode. which is a lot to do, even though they won’t be making records or on the road. They still have their endorsers, there’s still merch and branding to do — sync licenses and who knows? Maybe coming up with some sort of event that is SLAYER -based. This is all stuff we’re thinking about and talking about. SLAYER lives on, absolutely.”
In an interview with Australia’s Riff Crew , SLAYER drummer Paul Bostaph has confirmed to be working on a new musical project with Kerry King .
