TESTAMENT Announce North American Tour With THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER & MUNICIPAL WASTE

 Legendary bay area thrash metal giants TESTAMENT are proud to announce their North American 2020 tour.

“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 3rd. 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 3rd 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

The time has arrived for legendary bay area thrash metal giants TESTAMENT to unleash new thunder to the masses and reveal their thirteenth studio album: Titans Of Creation which will be released on April 3rd via Nuclear Blast.

Last week, the band releases the lyric video for the first single, “Night Of The Witch” here: youtu.be/cF2hIrXq2ss

Chuck Billy comments, “It has been months since the final mixing of ‘Titans Of Creation’ and we are eager for fans to hear it. We feel that we put a lot into this record and at the end of the day it is a TESTAMENT record that stands on its own. We are very proud of Titans Of Creation.

“‘Night Of The Witch’ uses old school lyrics about witches chanting in the moonlight and casting spells. The beauty of this song is that I worked in Eric’s vocals into the chorus. I wanted to incorporate him as he does DRAGONLORD and this song was a perfect match. It is a heavy song and a great way to introduce everyone to ‘Titans Of Creation’“.
