SLAYER ANNOUNCE BIG LINE-UP CHANGE

Less than a month after the tragic loss of late guitarist Jeff Hanneman, Slayer have announced that drummer Paul Bostaph has replaced Lombardo on a full-time basis.

The band apparently had a falling out with founding drummer Dave Lombardo earlier this year over a contractual dispute and replaced him temporarily with one of the band's other former drummers, Jon Dette. However, now they've chosen to move forward in their career with Bostaph reclaiming the drum spot in the band. Bostaph's first show back with the band will be on June 4th in Warsaw, Poland as the band begin their international tour.
The band are expected to play 35 dates including a number of major summer festivals in Europe and South America in the coming months.

Slayer frontman Tom Araya, speaking about the return of Bostaph, stated: "Paul's a great drummer and a good friend, and we're very happy that he's decided to rejoin the band. We're still pretty numb from the loss of Jeff [Hanneman], but we don't want to disappoint our European and South American fans, and we need to begin moving forward; having Paul back in the band makes that a whole lot easier."

Bostaph added: "I'm very excited to be rejoining Slayer. We spent a very intense ten years of our lives together, had a lot of fun, made a lot of great music, so for me, this feels like coming home."

During his previous stint with the band, Bostaph played on the 'Divine Intervention', 'Undisputed Attitude', 'Diabolus In Musica' and 'God Hates Us All' albums. He also appeared on the band's successful 'War At The Warfield' DVD. Bostaph has also played in Testament, Exodus and other Metal outfits.

Guitarist Gary Holt, who had been filling in for an ailing Hanneman for the past two years, will continue his role as the band's touring guitarist. Hanneman passed away at the age of 49 on May 2nd of this year.
