Summer Slaughter 2012 TourThe Summer Slaughter Tour has announced their schedule, set to their annual metal-fest on the road starting July 20, 2012 at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, California.

Headlined by death metal band Cannibal Corpse, the tour this year also includes appearances by Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, Periphery, Veil of Maya, Job for Cowboy, Goatwhore, Exhumed, and Cerebral Bore. The bassists for those bands are Alex Webster, Dan Briggs, Evan Brewer, Adam “Nolly” Getgood, Danny Hauser, Nick Schendzielos, James Harvey, Leon del Muerte, and Kyle Rutherford, respectively.

Additional special guest bands will be appearing at several of the dates, though they are all TBA. Tour founder Ash Avildsen says this is will be the highest point in the annual tour’s history.

“Without a doubt, this is the biggest year in the history of the tour,” Avildsen said. “We are honored to have such an incredible, diverse group of musicians all on the same bill. It’s brutal, classic, progressive, fresh and still the most extreme tour of the year. Drink lots of water before you show up and get ready to rage!”
