Resurrected Dutch death metallers PESTILENCE will support SLAYER on the following dates:

July 10 - Paradiso Amsterdam, The Netherlands
July 12 - Effenaar Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Commented PESTILENCE guitarist/vocalist Patrick Mameli: "This is a huge honor for us and we are really stoked!

"I have a 25-year career with PESTILENCE and we've been doing some pretty amazing stuff, but supporting the mighty SLAYER is definitely a highlight."

PESTILENCE's new album, "Doctrine", will be released in North America on July 19 via Mascot Records. The eleven-track CD was recorded and mixed at Woodshed Studio in southern Germany with engineer Victor Bullok (TRIPTYKON, DARK FORTRESS). The artwork was designed by Marko Saarelainen.

Regarding the direction of the band's new music, Mameli previously stated, "The new songs have the rawness of [1989's] 'Consuming Impulse', the theatrical [quality] of 1991's 'Testimony Of The Ancients' and the brutallity of [2009's comeback effort] 'Resurrection Macabre'."
