SLAYER's Tom Araya Talks About Bands Future & Having Jon Dette On Drums At Soundwave Festival - Video Available!

As we all know, there is a lot going on within the SLAYER camp as of late that has nothing to do with their music. Not only did Dave Lombardo not make the trip to Australia for the bands appearance at SOUNDWAVE Festival, but Jeff Hanneman hasn't performed with the band since the BIG FOUR concert in Indio, California in April of 2011 (EXODUS' Gary Holt is his temporary replacement). While the band is working on some NEW music, nothing concrete has been announced regarding the future of the band.

Yesterday (February 23), Tom Araya was interviewed by Soundwave TV's Christina about plans for the future, the (lack of) memories of the past, how the songwriting process works within Slayer, his most creative period and the story behind Slayer in Sydney back in 2011. Araya also discussed the involvement of Jon Dette with the band. Dette is currently stepping for the bands original drummer Dave Lombardo. Here is the interview:
