Testament 2020

Three legendary Bay Area thrash metal groups - Testament, Exodus and Death Angel - will join forces for 'The Bay Strikes Back Tour' across Europe. Both Testament and Exodus are currently working on upcoming records, while Death Angel will be touring in support of their most recent one, Humanicide.

Testament's Chuck Billy comments: "It's finally happening! All of us have spoken over the years of how killer it would be to tour together and bring Bay Area Thrash Metal across the world and we are starting in Europe. I'm sure I can speak for all three bands in saying that we are proud of where we all came from and we are still delivering some of the best thrash metal we can to the fans. Be ready for the Bay Area Strikes Back Tour 2020."

Gary Holt from Exodus adds: "I am fired up to FINALLY return to Europe with Exodus! Along with our Bay Area friends Testament and Death Angel! An epic tour for the ages! Looking forward to crushing everyone Bay Area style! See you there! I cannot wait!"

Death Angel's Rob Cavestany states: "We couldn't be more excited to announce our upcoming tour with Testament and Exodus! Bay Area Thrash Attack in full force! All three bands have been close friends for decades and our mutual respect is of the highest level. That said, we will surely push each other to go beyond expectations each and every night. This is a first - the three of us have never toured together in the same package... it's about time! See you in the pit!"
