Testament: Dark Roots of Earth

It’s been a year since TESTAMENT’s Dark Roots Of Earth debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and marked the highest U.S. first week sales ever for a Nuclear Blast artist. Since then, these Bay Area thrash metal legends have shown absolutely no signs of slowing down.

This fall, TESTAMENT will be direct support on the upcoming not-to-be-missed Lamb Of God and Killswitch Engage co-headlining tour through North America, which launches on Tuesday, October 22nd in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

“Been wanting to tour with Lamb Of God for a long time now,” shares TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy, “and with Killswitch also on the bill, how can this tour be anything but killer?”

Lamb Of God will be supporting 2012’s Resolution; Killswitch Engage is out promoting their latest, Disarm The Descent. California occult rockers Huntress will be opening all 28 shows. Ticket prices have been kept as low as possible to assure fans can come out during the holiday season.

Advanced tickets go on sale this Friday & Saturday, July 19th & 20th. A limited number of TESTAMENT V.I.P. packages will be available for each show, which include:

· A souvenir TESTAMENT V.I.P. Laminate
· A TESTAMENT poster
· An 8”x 10” photo of the band
· A coupon for discounted online merchandise
· Individual photo opportunities with band members
· A group photo with the entire V.I.P. group and TESTAMENT members

In addition, each V.I.P. purchaser will be entered into a raffle to win Chuck Billy’s stage vest worn throughout this tour. The winner of the vest will be personally contacted by Chuck and will also receive two (2) tickets to the next local TESTAMENT show with passes to come backstage and more!
