VITAL REMAINS Comments tour founder and booking agent Ash Avildsen on how Summer Slaughter fits in (or doesn't) with this summer's other metal tours: "I don't think those tours really compete for many of the same fans as Summer Slaughter. This is focused on underground extreme metal rather than mainstream metal. All of our shows also have air conditioning." He adds, "It's a much younger lineup this year rather than a lot of older bands in the headlining positions. Tickets will be much cheaper for this same reason, coming in at under $20 in advance almost everywhere with the exception of L.A. and NYC. Most will be $18."
