The last time we checked into the Summer Slaughter festival was in October, when the extreme summer fest was hinting at bands for 2013, and now they're at it again.
UPDATE 3/22/13 – The festival has just announced it's initial lineup. Click here for the info.
They hinted The Black Dahlia Murder, Children of Bodom, Gojira and The Dillinger Escape Plan . Black Dahlia is definitely out since they've announced they'll be playing Warped Tour this summer. The Dillinger Escape Plan is basically a lock seeing as though they signed with Sumerian, who's owners are also in charge of the booking company which is responsible for putting on the summer fest. Children of Bodom have hinted that they have big summer plans, but haven't let anybody know what they are, so they are still a maybe, and Gojira currently have no summer plans, so they might also be a possibility.
In the last few days, the Facebook page of the Summer Slaughter tour has been posting new teases:
so what if we got AEON to finally come to North America this Summer?
So Cattle Decapitation hasn't been on Summer Slaughter since the very first year back in 2006. You fuckers ready for us to bring 'em back in 2013?!
Revocation … \m/
Are you a fan of The Ocean (Metal Blade) ?
Could these be possible bands for the tour? Cattle Decapitation seems as close to a lock as possible based on the status post, as does Revocation, who would be perfect for the summer tour. Meanwhile, The Ocean and Aeon still seem up in the air.
We'll know soon enough, but it's always fun to speculate. If you had your way, what would the eight band bill for Summer Slaughter be?
