Today is International Day of Slayer and band members Tom Araya, Kerry King, Paul Bostaph and Gary Hold collectively state in a press release, “Thanks to the fans for celebrating this day with us for the past 12 years…keep it going!”
Additional thanks from the band is for Jeff Tandy who, on June 6, 2006 launched the “National Day of Slayer” site. Because of that site’s momentous occasion, it would become “International Day of Slayer.” The site was built by Jeff himself, and he still maintains it.
