Anthrax, Testament to Headline North American Tour

Thrash luminaries Anthrax and Testament are set to co-headline a North American tour this fall, beginning on October 14. Support throughout the trek to more than two dozen cities will come from Death Angel.

The tour marks the first time in more than a decade that Anthrax and Testament have toured together. For Anthrax it represents a further coming together with fellow thrash legends, coming hot on the heels of the Big Four concert at New York City’s Yankee Stadium next week.

“We’ve been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time,” Anthrax’s Charlie Benante commented. “So we’re really looking forward to hanging out with them on the road. And all of us in Anthrax are big Death Angel fans, so this is going to be a monster of a good time—for all of us and for the fans. Plus, with the incredible success of The Big Four shows over the last year, we wanted to tour with some of the ‘second wave’ of thrash bands.”
