Longtime Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo will not be accompanying the band to Australia in 2013.
In a statement, Lombardo put forward that the bands business practices are the fault and that he had only been payed a small advance during 2012.
A letter from lawyers advised Lombardo that he will not be required for the tour. Slayer are not making further comment, but have disagreed with Lombardos version of accounts.
Jon Dette will be drumming for the band,as well as filling in for rogue Anthrax time keeper, Charlie Benante.
