What’s Up Mother Fuckas…
Testament is about to embark on a KILLER North American tour and I am stoked!!! Formation of Damnation took us all over the world playing 126 gigs so far since the release of The Formation Of Damnation in April 2008. We even played rare shows in Eindhoven and London where we got to perform our first 2 Albums; it was incredible being on stage with our original line up performing songs from the early days of our career. It made us realize that we have a whole new generation of fans out there who love to thrash. Now we are coming home and there is nothing better than Headlining stages Coast to Coast. We are thrilled to be able to brutalize the nation and to be bringing some Class A Metal Acts: Unearth and Lazarus A.D. along for the ride.
Dudes, we have something SICK planned for you, we know times are tough and it is hard to get out there and spend the money on a ticket so we are making this tour YOURS. It is your choice what we play, check out the BRAND NEW contest live on our MySpace and VOTE on 3 set lists to determine our musical fate for the evening. We promise which ever set wins, we will get out on stage every night and kick your motha-fucking ass… Also, for the first time EVER we have VIP packages for sale. Not only does the VIP package include a ticket to the show but… hey, Go ahead have a drink ON US! …and with us, you will hang with us and check out our sound check, PLUS receive an autographed poster, collectible laminate, Testament Music Skins, a Very Special Limited Edition Merch Item and you will be entered into a raffle to win one of our NOT EVEN OUT YET Darkstar Testament Skateboard as well as Eric Peterson’s signature Dean guitar “Old Skull” V, and more! So don’t waste time take a look at our dates, see when we are coming to your city, buy a ticket to the show & GET INTO THE PIT!
