Legendary bay area thrash metal giants TESTAMENT are proud to announce their North American 2020 tour. The 30-date trek will kick-off in Phoenix on April 20 and will make stops in Austin, Mexico and Toronto before concluding in Anaheim on May 28. Joining them on the tour are The Black Dahlia Murder, label mates Municipal Waste and Meshiaak.
“I’m super excited about TESTAMENT’s tour with The Black Dahlia Murder and Municipal Waste,” states Alex Skolnick. “As much as we’ve enjoyed touring with bands who emerged before us, from our own time period and slightly later eras, it will be a fresh experience to share the bill with these two, both of whom formed in the new Millennium, each with a unique perspective and a sound unlike anyone else. It’ll be a fun night of music. Don’t miss it!”
Steve Di Giorgio states, “The new album, ‘Titans Of Creation’ comes out on April 3. We are going to be on the road in the USA and Canada in April and May. We hope to see all your thrashers out there. Come out and check out the new record and show! Metal forever!”
Gene Hoglan comments, “Hey everybody! I am here to tell you that the new TESTAMENT album which drops on April 3 called ‘Titans Of Creation‘ has to be one of our best records of all time. Every TESTAMENT fan out there has to pick this one up cause I believe that everybody is going to love this one like crazy. Right on! We’ll see you out on the road on all the dates we have lined. See you soon!”
TESTAMENT will be touring in support of their thirteenth album, Titans Of Creation, which was produced by Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson while Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios handled co-producing, recording and engineering. Andy Sneap was responsible for the mixing and mastering of the album. Watch the lyric video for the first single, “Night Of The Witch” here: youtu.be/cF2hIrXq2ss.
