Testament to embark on European tour


Testament (2008) Hot on the heels of their blistering US headlining tour Damnation Vacation with Unearth and Lazarus AD; thrash gods TESTAMENT now hit Europe hard on a huge summer run throughout Europe, where they'll be playing the Metalcamp, Wacken Open Air, and the Brutal Assault festivals. The tour kicks off in Holland on July 2 and concludes August 8 in Belgium. The band has been touring non-stop in support of their award-winning album, Golden God Album of the Year award, The Formation of Damnation, including this year's "Priest Feast" tour in Europe with Judas Priest earlier this year and a phenomenal run on the "Metal Masters" tour last summer with Heaven and Hell and Motorhead.

Upon their return in August, the band will be making a stop in NYC for a special taping of SIRIUS XM's Artist Confidential series. Artist Confidential features the most important and timeless artists in music sitting down for candid interviews, intimate conversations with fans and live performances. Artists who have appeared in the SIRIUS XM series include Paul McCartney, Santana, Coldplay, Bryan Adams, Phil Collins, Gloria Estefan, Don Henley, Bonnie Raitt, Def Leppard, Rush, Smashing Pumpkins, Pink, James Taylor, Sting, Bob Weir and over 100 others. The show is scheduled to air later this year on SIRIUS XM's Liquid Metal, SIRIUS channel 27 and XM channel 42.

Stay tuned for more from Testament!
