Bay Area thrash metal band Testament has announced an early 2013 headlining tour through much of N. America. Support will be coming from Overkill, Flotsam And Jetsam, and Australian band 4Arm.
“It’s a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with Overkill and Flotsam And 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.”
The band is also making a VIP package available that includes a great deal of swag and a chance to win a Eric Peterson signature Dean guitar signed by the band. Check out all the tour dates and VIP package details below. READ MORE
