As previously reported, SLAYER is streaming its entire new album, "Christ Illusion", on the band's official MySpace page.

Kerry King will be the featured guest on this weekend's edition of "Headbanger's Ball", airing on Saturday, August 5 at 10:00 p.m. EST. In additon, "Headbanger's Ball" will cut its show short this weekend to devote the 11:30 p.m. - midnight slot to air "The Unholy Alliance Tour Special". The half-hour, exclusive-to-"Headbanger's Ball" program was shot last month when the six-week "Unholy Alliance Tour" came to Vancouver, B.C. The special features interviews plus live-in-concert and behind-the-scenes footage of the entire lineup — tour headliner SLAYER, as well as LAMB OF GOD, MASTODON, CHILDREN OF BODOM, and THINE EYES BLEED.

SLAYER will film a war-themed video for the song "Eyes of the Insane" with director Tony Petrossian (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR). No further details are available at this time.

Due on August 8, "Christ Illusion" is SLAYER's first new studio album since 2001, and the first recorded by the band's original line-up — Kerry King (guitar), Tom Araya (bass, vocals), Jeff Hanneman (guitars), Dave Lombardo (drums) — since 1990's "Seasons In The Abyss". "Christ Illusion" was produced by Josh Abraham and executive-produced by Rick Rubin.
