Thrash legends, TESTAMENT, have announced upcoming tour dates for 2008. The band will be touring to support their April 29 release of The Formation of Damnation. The album marks TESTAMENTâ€™s Nuclear Blast debut, and it is the first new studio album from the band since 1999â€™s landmark, The Gathering.
The Formation of Damnation features the classic lineup of Chuck Billy on vocals, Eric Peterson and Alex Skolnick on guitar, and Greg Christian on bass…PLUS the venerable Paul Bostaph (ex-SLAYER, FORBIDDEN) on drums. The band called on Andy Sneap who has been waiting nine years to engineer and mix the forthcoming album.
TESTAMENT has also re-issued two classic albums, 1997â€™s Demonic and 1999â€™s The Gathering through Prosthetic Records. Both are available now. Prosthetic will also be re-issuing 2001â€™s First Strike Still Deadly in March with new art.
Donâ€™t miss TESTAMENT as they tour to support the April 29th release of the highly anticipated new album, The Formation of Damnation.
