Official press release:

Continuing the return of Testament, the original line-up will perform shows world-wide in 2007. Influencing a whole metal movement today, Testament maintain the originators of thrash.

Drummer Nick Barker (Dimmu Borgir/Cradle Of Filth) will join all original members Alex Skolnick (guitar), Greg Christian (bass), Eric Peterson (guitar) and Chuck Billy (vocals) for this historical year. Testament is currently working on new material for an upcoming CD release. Stay tuned for more information.

Band guitarist Eric Peterson exclaims, "Hey metal world! Working hard with Nick on some new ideas and some cool old school styles and it's coming together really killer! Six songs already in the can so far! Just waiting for the Chief to come up with some lyrics to match, we get into the studio to track the drums in June...looking forward to busting out some new ones for this summer at the festivals and get a reaction!"

Chuck Billy states "It's been a long time coming, this new album is like a good wine, you throw in the grapes and 'crush.'"
