Select cities are on sale now, and more dates will be announced soon.

In addition to its monumental line-up, the Dark Roots Of Thrash II tour sees TESTAMENT serving up another surprise for die-hard fans of their early tenure. Each night, TESTAMENT will perform an epic headlining set that digs deep into the early discography that launched their worldwide career spanning two-and-a-half decades. TESTAMENT’s exclusive set will feature full-album performances of 1987’s classic body of work The Legacy and 1988’s unrelenting The New Order, in addition to select tracks from 1989’s mainstream crossover Practice What You Preach.

The Dark Roots Of Thrash II tour marks the live re-introduction of TESTAMENT bassist Steve DiGiorgio. This isn’t DiGiorgio’s first time playing with TESTAMENT, as he is credited for recording bass on 1999’s The Gathering and 2001’s First Strike Still Deadly. Additionally, the tour will mark the live debut of Alex Skolnick’s anticipated brand new signature ESP guitars and Budda amps.

After almost 30 years of touring, TESTAMENT and EXODUS get to share our individual styles of thrash metal across the U.S. and Canada. The Day of Reckoning is here and coming to a town near you. Good times with good friends – heavy metal forever!”

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt adds, “EXODUS are very excited in the most violent of fashion to announce our part in the Dark Roots Of Thrash II tour with our old friends and label mates TESTAMENT, as well as soon to be new friends SHATTERED SUN! This is gonna be a thrash metal tour de force and we cannot wait to deliver a Bay Area beating to everyone, everywhere, in every way! We shall see everyone out there!”

“We are ecstatic to announce this tour with TESTAMENT and EXODUS,” offers SHATTERED SUN frontman Marcos Leal. “This will be our first national tour and we couldn't be more ready to represent and show the world what we are all about! We have been anticipating getting out there and playing this album to the fans, so the moment we have been fighting for has finally arrived! Thank you to TESTAMENT for having us out, this is a huge honor for us and our family and we look forward to wreaking havoc with our brothers in metal EXODUS

The Dark Roots Of Thrash II tour embodies the true lineage of American thrash metal.
