Testament - Announce US Headlining Tour

Bay Area thrash metal legends Testament are proud to announce their first US headlining tour since their phenomenal chart success with their new album, Dark Roots of Earth, released at the end of July this year via Nuclear Blast. The trek promises to be one of the best thrash metal lineups of the year, with support coming from the world renowned Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam, as well as Australian thrashers 4ARM.Check out the full list of tour dates below the flyer.

"It's a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with Overkill and Flotsam & Jetsam," commented guitarist Alex Skolnick. "It's a tour that brings together three different metal bands from three different regions: West Coast, East Coast and Southwest. All three bands sound very different from one another yet are highly compatible. All have been around the block (and the world) a few times and all have managed to keep a sound that feels current. This tour will be a must see for fans who remember the early days of thrash/speed metal as well as those whose age is younger than the genre itself."
