- advertisement -
Testament have posted an update on vocalist Chuck Billy's condition on their official website. “Last week, Chuck's doctors had some great news,” the statement reads. “The tumors in Chuck's upper body are shrinking, his blood count is looking good, and the levels of the dangerous cancer hormones in his system are very low. That's what we wanted to hear!!! Chuck also got the 'okay' to start physical rehabilitation and singing again. He's going to begin rehearsing for his side project with Steve DiGiorgio [Testament/Sadus], Jon Allen [Testament/Sadus] and Darren Travis [Sadus], [for] which they already have nine songs written. The writing process for the next Testament CD has begun as well. Billy was diagnosed with cancer last year.
The band also confirmed that the import version of their album of newly recorded Testament classics, First Strike Still Deadly, will be an enhanced CD with interviews, performance clips, and behind-the-scenes footage of the band put together by Reality Check's production division, RC Media. The release dates is still not available yet.
