Dates For Anthrax, Testament, And Death Angel Tour Announced

Posted by on September 6, 2011

One tour we’re really looking forward to this Fall is Anthrax’s trek with Testament and Death Angel. Testament singer Chuck Billy was the first to let news about the tour slip (although Overkill quickly confirmed that they were not a part of the package). And now we don’t have to play the waiting game any longer, as dates for the entire tour have been revealed.

The trek is being dubbed a co-headlining tour, with Anthrax closing each night. A pre-sale for Anthrax fan club members starts today, while tickets for most shows go on-sale the the public starting this Friday, September 9.

Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante had the following to say about the tour:

“We’ve been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time. 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 singer Chuck Billy added the following:

“We’re excited to do this tour because Anthrax was actually the first band we ever toured withIt’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.”
