The guys of Slayer are saying goodbye for longer than originally planned, as the legendary metal band has added a new leg to their final North American tour.

The thrashers have added new shows starting with a July 26 stop in Gilford, New Hampshire, and running through an Aug. 26 show in San Jose, California. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 9 via Slayer.net.

That gives Slayer a bit of time off between tour legs, since the first leg of the band's North American tour will set off May 10 in San Diego, and run through a June 20 gig in Austin, Texas. Both legs will bring along openers Lamb of God, Anthrax and Testament.
