The news we were all dreading and expecting has arrived. Dave Lombardo is officially out of SLAYER…. Again. Slayer confirmed the news last night and named Paul Bostaph as their new drummer. That’s right, it’s 1992 again.

Paul took over the sticks from Dave 19 years ago when the band had their last major falling out drummed with them on Divine Intervention, Undisputed Attitude, Diabolus In Musica and God Hates Us All before leaving due to an elbow injury which lead to a reconciliation between the band and Dave.

Dave has been absent from the band this time since February when apparent monetary disagreements left Dave out of an Australian tour. The confirmation that he is fully out will add more sadness to Slayer fans after losing founding member and legend, Jeff Hanneman earlier this month. Hopes were high that Jeff’s passing might help the lads see what’s really important and reunite as a band. Unfortunately this is not the case. Their touring line-up for 2013 will be completed by Gary Holt from Exodus filling in for Jeff.

Slayer play Dublin’s Academy on June 10th and 11th before playing Belfast on June 12. All three dates are sold out.
