Slayer is giving audiences one more high-powered metal treat before it hits the road for its farewell tour.

The band announced this week that it will release a limited edition vinyl box set pressing of its now final album Repentless this summer.  Repentless6.66 Inch Special Collector’s Edition Vinyl Box Set will be released fittingly on June 6, International Day of Slayer.

The box set will be available in separate black, red and gold-colored vinyl pressings, with only 2,500 copies of each box set produced worldwide.  The sets will consist of six single vinyl EPs, each measuring 6.66 inches in diameter, and each will contain two songs from Repentless.  The red and black disc sets are expected to retail for $66.66 and the gold set for $73.99.  Pre-orders are open now.

The announcement of the new limited edition box sets is just the latest big news from the band as it prepares for its end.  It will hit the road one last time beginning May 10 for an extensive worldwide farewell tour.  The schedule for the tour’s first two legs — each consisting of dates across North America — is noted below.
