Bay Area thrash veterans Testament have announced details of an upcoming headlining US tour.  They will be touring with support coming from Overkill, Flotsam and Jetsam, and 4Arm.

The tour is being called The Dark Roots of Thrash Tour, named after Testament’s latest Nuclear Blast release Dark Roots of Earth.  Testament has also just finished a tour with Anthrax and Death Angel.  These guys never seem to stop and put on a mind blowing show every time, so if you get a chance go and see them.

Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick had the following to say about the tour:

“It’s a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with Overkill and Flotsam and Jetsam.  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.”
