Anthrax and Testament to Co-Headline US Tour

Anthrax and Testament are gearing up for their first tour together in more than a decade. The co-headlining trek begins on October 14 in Grand Rapids, MI and will come to a close on November 19 in Milwaukee, WI. Anthrax will close each show, and Death Angel will be the main support for the entire tour.

“We’ve been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time,” said Anthrax’s Charlie Benante. “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.”

Testament vocalist Chuck Billy remarked, “We’re excited to do this tour because Anthrax was actually the first band we ever toured with. It’s an accomplishment 20 odd years later that we’re going to do it again. The tour kick-off date is actually about five days difference from the kick off date of the first tour 20 years ago. The first time we performed with Anthrax, we only had a total of ten songs, so obviously now we have many songs to pick from so it will be very different. It’s good to see that a lot of the faces in the bands are the same as back when we first did this original tour 20 years ago.”
