    Testament will headline a U.S. tour in early-2013 with support from Overkill, Flotsam and Jetsam, and 4Arm.

    "It's a thrill to announce our upcoming dates with Overkill and Flotsam and Jetsam," says guitarist Alex Skolnick. "It's a tour that brings together three different metal bands from three different regions: West Coast, East Coast and Southwest. All three bands sound very different from one another yet are highly compatible. All have been around the block (and the world) a few times and all have managed to keep a sound that feels current. This tour will be a 'must see' for fans who remember the early days of thrash/speed metal as well as those whose age is younger than the genre itself."

    This is a great touring package and a genius move on behalf of Testament's management, in light of the disappointing European touring 'lineup'. Can't remember exactly who the bands were that they took out, but I know they were not in the least compatible with Testament. This lineup unites the very different sounding east/west coast Thrash styles plus supports the relatively overlooked and underappreciated Flotsam & Jetsam, who definitely need a 'boost' in their careers as a band. I did hear a few tracks from the upcoming album "Ugly Noise", and all I have to say is...I hope what I heard were demo's:eek:

    There's another group on the bill, 4ARM (select shows), and those guys rip it up:devil:

    I'll be at the Worcester, MA show on 02/16/13

    This is an incredible must-see tour. It takes a lot for me to go see a show these days but this billing has done it.

    me too. I may skip out on Testament since i've seen them about 20 times, one time being only a month or so ago, and I have a 2 hour drive home.
    Can't wait to see Overkill and expecially Flots again:kickass:

    I feel ya! We usually have to drive 90 minutes in either direction to get to these shows. We don't have venue for shows this size in Greensboro.
