Kerry King has just announced a London headline show for this summer.

The Slayer legend and his band are set to hit the Electric Ballroom in Camden on Tuesday, June 18, just two days on from their appearance on the Apex Stage at Download Festival.

Both performances will arrive around a month after from the release of Kerry’s upcoming solo album From Hell I Rise, which is due out on May 17 via Reigning Phoenix Music.

And in fact, there’s a chance we’ll be getting to hear even more new music from him, beyond the material on From Hell I Rise…

“Even with a record in the can, I’ve still got so many songs that need to be finished,” he said last week. “This is what I know how to do… number one being music, number two being metal. It’s been a part of my life for 40 years, and I’m nowhere near being done.”
