Former Slayer guitarist Kerry King, who recently said the he hates his band quit too early has revealed to Metal Hammer in a brand new interview that his original plan was to reveal his new solo band in 2020 and start touring with it but obviously due to COVID-19 pandemic the plans were scapped and now he is looking for the right time to announce his new band.

King also said in the interview that he has a tour offer on his table at the moment but he aims most likely to get back on the road in the end of 2022. King had the following to say about his new band and future plans:

“I had picks that I threw out at those shows — ‘The Final Campaign’ — at the end of the show. And in every city, I threw out two that said, ‘Reborn in 2020,’ because that was my plan — I planned on touring in 2020. Then the pandemic came up and we were into 2021, because I want everybody to get the bumps out of the road before I go out. Here we are at the end of 2021 and I’m looking at the end of 2022 now. And we’ll see what happens next year because it’s evolving. I don’t want to go out and feel stuff out, I want to go out and have a good time. I’m not being selfish, I don’t mean it like that. I mean that whatever the new rules are, I want them to be smooth before I go out.”

“I’m dragging my feet on letting the world know what I’m doing because there’s no rush. I have a tour that I’m considering doing, but I’m not going to announce a band, I’m not going to announce a record, I’m not going to announce anything. But you will see me in the future — it will be fucking good.”
