Slayer To Share Drummer With Anthrax At Soundwave

Written by Mike Hohnen on February 21, 2013

Jon Dette must seriously be the ultimate dude. Not only will he be filling in on the skins for Anthrax while they’re in Australia, but he’s now also put his hand up to man the sticks for Slayer.

The drama of Dave Lombardo‘s split from Slayer unravelled this afternoon when the founding member announced that he was stood down from the role on account of internal tension. There has been no word yet on his future with the band, but for their upcoming Soundwave and sidewave performances, Dette’s got it covered.

Fortunately, it shouldn’t be too difficult as Dette has played with Slayer back in the day, but he was never a member of Anthrax – he’s just filling that role because he’s clearly the man.

Soundwave 2013 kicks off this weekend at RNA Showgrounds on the Saturday before heading down to Sydney’s Olympic Park. For all timetables and maps for each city, click here.

UPDATE: 22/02/13

Slayer have released a brief statement on the matter. While refusing to shed light on their version of events, they do confirm Jon Dette as the drummer for their Australian tour.
