The Summer Slaughter Tour 2013 lineup revealed

The 2013 Summer Slaughter Tour has formally been announced. The tour will run from July 19th through August 24th and the lineup is as follows: Dillinger Escape Plan Animals As Leaders Periphery Norma Jean Cattle Decapitation The Ocean Revocation Aeon Rings of Saturn Thy Art Is Murder Ash Avildsen, founder of Summer Slaughter on this year's edition of the tour: "It's year seven and I think 2013's line-up is the most exciting and diverse yet. Slaughter has never been a one dimensional experience for fans. This year is a true testament to that as we have an amazing mix of extreme music's influential icons and leaders of the new school. Let the underground unite!" Greg Puciato (DEP vocalist) states: "We can't wait to get back on the road! We're launching a US tour in the spring, hitting Europe for some festivals and club shows, and then hitting several more cities with Summer Slaughter all summer long. We are absolutely amped. After being holed up in the studio for such a long time giving birth to One of Us is the Killer, we are all pent up and ready to share material new and old with our supporters doing what we love to do the most. Can't wait to see and either kiss or rip off each and every one of your faces on the road with Summer Slaughter and year round, everywhere." 2012 Summer Slaughter lineup

anonymous 3/22/2013 11:02:27 AM

Periphery can suck on my tiny little Bulb. And swallow.


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:03:19 AM

The Summer Shit Tour 2013. All this needs to be shittier is have the Browning on it. gayy ass band.


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:05:19 AM

this lineup is a joke. i thought this was a death metal tour?


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:06:04 AM

will go for Aeon only. Then leave with a scene girl with her lips on my c-ck


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:12:08 AM

Norma jean and DEP? 2004 is stoked


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:19:13 AM

Worst lineup ever!.


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:22:33 AM

No one is stoked.


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:32:44 AM

seriously, fck periphery.


tronxtaylor 3/22/2013 11:33:13 AM

"will go for Aeon only. Then leave with a scene girl with her lips on my c-ck" ^This


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:34:00 AM

Lambgoat comment queers are not stoked.


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:45:07 AM

They should have called this The Poor Mans Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Tour


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:46:29 AM

the too many notes tour...


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:51:26 AM

Only 2 actual death metal bands as usual. Big surprise.


anonymous 3/22/2013 11:52:02 AM

Wow Ash this is the stupidest tour line up ever, minus Cattle D. Periphery? AAL? How the fck is that death metal? Whatever, not spending a dime on this lame tour.


ineedmoresalt 3/22/2013 12:16:44 PM

hey, lets just settle down....


anonymous 3/22/2013 12:23:39 PM

I personally think this lineup is badass, minus Periphery and Norma Jean. DEP? AAL? Revocation? Cattle Decap? Aeon? All sick bands.


xtonyhotdogsx 3/22/2013 12:31:03 PM

Ehhhhhhh....Two Summer Tour announcements this week and still flaccid


anonymous 3/22/2013 12:32:03 PM

Would have loved to see Black Breath, The Acacia Strain, Nails, Legion, or Fleshgod Apocalypse!


anonymous 3/22/2013 12:34:27 PM

Jenna Haze is stoked.


anonymous 3/22/2013 12:37:16 PM

this is the weirdest summer slaughter lineup ever


anonymous 3/22/2013 12:44:27 PM

AEON!!!... Cattle decap and Revocation... and some other bands.


anonymous 3/22/2013 12:55:56 PM

AEON is the only sick band in this pssy festival


anonymous 3/22/2013 1:09:05 PM

Periphery SUCKS!! Get Animals out of there too (I like em btw). I just think that Dillinger as far as Off Time/Math Metal/Djenty groups go, that AAL and Mansoor and co. Just cant live up.


anonymous 3/22/2013 1:17:15 PM

There are too many hipsters in this scene. Look at the other comments.


horseheadxbookends 3/22/2013 1:28:51 PM

i have an awful feeling that Cult of Luna will be tossed on this and play 2 songs


anonymous 3/22/2013 1:36:54 PM

Would have loved to see Black Breath, The Acacia Strain, Nails, Legion, or Fleshgod Apocalypse! Black Breath fcking owns


anonymous 3/22/2013 1:47:54 PM

Black Breath blows. fck all Entombed rip-offs.


f28r06a42n12k 3/22/2013 1:57:23 PM

summer gay fest. 2007/2009 lineups will never return :(


anonymous 3/22/2013 2:23:21 PM

Seriously, it's Dillinger, AAL, Norma Jean, Cattle Decap, The Ocean, Revocation, and Aeon. How are you all hating on this lineup? Because Periphery is on it? Yeah you all can sck a dck.


anonymous 3/22/2013 2:33:53 PM

NO DEATHCORE? That makes me sad.


anonymous 3/22/2013 2:36:44 PM

SO TIRED of seeing Dillinger playing every fcking fest. Ugh.


anonymous 3/22/2013 2:55:50 PM

this is ozzfest


anonymous 3/22/2013 2:59:27 PM

Memphis Will Be Laid To Waste is the greatest song ever


anonymous 3/22/2013 3:03:42 PM

You guys used to like Norma Jean stop lying to yourself


anonymous 3/22/2013 3:11:31 PM

If cattle decap, Aeon and revocation weren't on, I would have mistaken this for a warped tour announcement.


anonymous 3/22/2013 3:25:59 PM

To heavy for me. When can we have a real tour with sugarcult, Taking Back Sunday and some other great bands like them. This tour will rot your brain.


anonymous 3/22/2013 3:59:35 PM

AEON will murder Norma Jean and there lame Christian beliefs


anonymous 3/22/2013 4:23:54 PM

"AEON will murder Norma Jean and there lame Cristian beliefs" ^LOL


anonymous 3/22/2013 5:32:24 PM

"No deathcore? That makes me sad." More like "no deathcore? That's one small step for a tour, one giant leap for metalkind."


anonymous 3/22/2013 6:58:55 PM

I like to hang out with girls that are 18 and i am 27, is that ok?


anonymous 3/22/2013 8:10:25 PM

Isn't Gojira supposed to co-headline this?


anonymous 3/22/2013 9:09:52 PM

Oh, and Periphery sucks so much they make the Dalai Lama cry.


anonymous 3/22/2013 10:05:40 PM

DEP= Shitty music for people who think they listen to heavy music


anonymous 3/23/2013 1:01:13 AM

DEP= Shitty music for people who think they listen to heavy music ^^^ Did not attend Mr. Bungle/DEP tour in 1999. Has never seen DEP live. Is poser high school kid.


anonymous 3/23/2013 1:34:01 AM

wow. Only going for cattle decap, Aeon, And revocation. Leaving after.. and i hope they all play for more than fcking 10 minutes. damn i remember when summer slaughter had good lineups.. what happened?


anonymous 3/23/2013 4:38:52 AM

"DEP= Shitty music for people who think they listen to heavy music ^^^ Did not attend Mr. Bungle/DEP tour in 1999. Has never seen DEP live. Is poser high school kid." Greg?? is that you??


anonymous 3/23/2013 8:26:45 AM

Now when they say "plus more to be announced", does that mean just a voted opener or other bands too? Because this lineup is very, very weak so far


anonymous 3/23/2013 8:56:51 AM

no solo fest


anonymous 3/23/2013 1:00:52 PM

2 summer slaughters in a row that are not worth going


anonymous 3/24/2013 10:28:19 AM

I rather bag scene bitches at warped tour and make them watch Black Dahlia Murder go see this skinny tight jean sausage fest.


anonymous 3/25/2013 6:31:35 AM

I never though I'd see the day where I can totally agree with Lambgoat users. Periphery is ass, AAL sucks for the most part, DEP doesn't belong here, neither does Norma Jean. Profit flip.


anonymous 3/25/2013 7:00:16 AM

I rather bag scene bitches at warped tour and make them watch Black Dahlia Murder "THAN"<---- you forgot a word in your sentence, good luck on your G.E.D. test... go see this skinny tight jean sausage fest. ^THIS RIGHT HERE!!!^

anonymous 3/25/2013 10:08:00 AM

I don't care what kind of music is "supposed" to be on this tour. I have listened to DEP for ten years and I have never had the chance to see them. I also love AAL and Cattle Decap. Im stoked as fck!


anonymous 3/25/2013 12:42:37 PM

lambgoat users will never be happy with any news posted on the site.


anonymous 3/25/2013 4:13:41 PM

Stoked stokeds are stoked for stoked


anonymous 3/25/2013 4:44:02 PM

"Let the underground give me dollars!"


anonymous 3/25/2013 5:52:18 PM

wow, this looks fun......... not.


anonymous 3/26/2013 1:07:37 PM

I wish Karp was still around...


anonymous 3/26/2013 2:35:12 PM

summer slaughter is usually known for their decent lineups but this is laughable. terrible lineup


anonymous 3/28/2013 8:38:09 AM

I think this line up fcking destroys. Talking shit on these bands just shows that you're limiting your musical spectrum and bitching like a child. For those who dump on periphery, matt halpern. Have a more wide appreciation for musical talent. I guarantee NONE of you have put forth half as much effort into becoming a seasonedmmusician as any memeber of any of these bands. Hate the bands? Think they sound like shit? Start writing better musis and then you wont have to worry about them anymore.


anonymous 4/26/2013 1:59:39 PM

the acacia strain should be playing....


jacob 4/26/2013 3:25:36 PM

cattle decapitation are a bunch of irl gays


anonymous 4/26/2013 6:28:02 PM

Write better musis?
