Just a week after announcing the beginnings of a U.S. tour, Slayer has extended the fall run to include Canadian markets as well.

The thrash metal act will first complete a round of South American shows alongside Iron Maiden before kicking off their official headlining trek with an Oct. 22 performance in Anchorage, AK. The North American tour now hits 25 major markets, finishing up Nov. 30 in Boston.

Tickets for the outing, which will feature opening support by Gojira and 4ARM, go on sale Friday (9/13).

The tour will feature guitarist Gary Holt, who continues to fill in for founding member Jeff Hanneman, who died in May of liver failure from alcohol-related cirrhosis.

Slayer's most recent studio album, "World Painted Blood," surfaced in 2009 and peaked at No. 12 on The Billboard 200. In 2010, the band released "The Vinyl Conflict," a box set featuring 10 studio albums, as well as their 1991 live album "Decade of Aggression."
