Testament Announces Headlining Tour with Exodus


dark roots of thrash II tour

UPDATE, Feb 24, 11:58am EST: More dates have been added! Highlighted in bold below. 

Sexcellent news: Testament and Exodus, the two best classic thrash bands whose monikers make reference to The Bible, will hit the road together this spring for the “Dark Roots of Thrash II.” According to a press release, Testament (who are the headliners, in case the name of the tour didn’t tip you off) “will be performing an exclusive headlining set comprised of select tracks from their first three albums: 1987’s debut The Legacy, 1988’s The New Order, and 1989’s Practice What You Preach.” Which is awesome — those three albums are all rad — although, funny enough, Testament are one of the few bands of their generation who have managed to stay relevant into their later years. I guess I’m saying, if they wanna throw some newer shit into the encore or something, I’d be okay with that.
