Testament and Unearth comment on upcoming tour

TESTAMENT drummer Paul Bostaph checked in from the road to comment on the band’s upcoming run in North America. “I'm excited as hell for the upcoming U.S. tour with Lazarus A.D. and Unearth, said Bostaph. “We’ll be supporting the newest Testament release The Formation of Damnation, and we’ll be pulling out all the stops! So, come on out; it will be a killer show!”

Currently in Europe on the Priest Feast tour with Judas Priest and Megadeth, TESTAMENT will return to the US for their first headlining tour in support of The Formation of Damnation, winner of the Metal Hammer Golden Gods 2008 award for “Album of the Year.”

Unearth guitarist Ken Susi adds: “When I was growing up, Testament were like gods to me! After all these years, it’s amazing to know that they are still putting out great music and that my band is lucky enough to share the stage with them this spring! I am really, really excited!”
