    TESTAMENT ANNOUNCES 2008 TOUR DATES!!! NEW ALBUM – “THE FORMATION OF DAMNATION” - STREETS APRIL 29!!!!

    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 Testament’s Nuclear Blast debut, and it is the first new studio album from the band since 1999’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 (Slayer, Testament, Forbidden) on drums. The band called on Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Trivium, Chimaira) who has been waiting nine years to engineer and mix the forthcoming album.

    Guitar World calls the album “unrelentingly rifftastic and ominously titled,” and Decibel counted “The Formation of Damnation” as one of the Top 25 Most Anticipated Albums of 2008.

    Testament has also re-issued two classic albums, 1997’s “Demonic” and 1999's “The Gathering” through Prosthetic Records. Both are available now. Prosthetic will also be re-issuing 2001’s “First Strike Still Deadly” in March with new art.

    Praise continues to pour in from the many people who have been influenced by Testament’s music:

    “Testament is one of the most underrated classic bands out there. They should be looked at as one of the pioneers of the metal scene, right up there with Metallica and Slayer.” – Mark Hunter, Chimaira

    “Far and away one of the most influential bands in all of modern metal. While other veteran acts soak up much of the spotlight with sing a-longs, Testament maintains the unsurpassed musicianship, integrity and brutality that continue to create an untouchable legacy.” – Chris Adler, Lamb of God

    “Testament is THE band who got me into metal and made me want to write and play music, & I am VERY much looking forward to the new album” - Jesper Strömblad, In Flames

    Don’t miss Testament as they tour to support the April 29th release of the highly anticipated new album, “The Formation of Damnation.”
