Testament on tour to promote “The Formation of Damnation”


Testament have returned from a successful European festival run and a triumphant victory for “Album of the Year” at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, and they are now looking ahead to the upcoming Metal Masters tour, which will be screaming across the US this August. The tour also features metal legends Judas Priest, Heaven and Hell, and Motorhead. Metal Masters kicks off August 6 at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ and wraps up August 31 in Testament’s hometown of San Francisco!

Prior to the Metal Masters tour, Testament will be playing a short string of dates in the US and Canada with the venerable Judas Priest. Testament will also play several special headlining club shows before and during the Metal Masters tour.

Guitarist Eric Peterson commented on the upcoming tour: “We just finished doing Europe, and it was killer. Now we’re looking forward to playing with these bands that have had a huge influence on our lives. We’re excited and honored to be a part of this tour, and we can’t wait to get out and play. It’s been 20 years since we’ve been on a tour like this.”

The Formation of Damnation debuted at #59 on the Billboard Top 200. The Formation of Damnation is Testament’s highest charting release in their 24-year history. The album also dominated at radio holding the #1 spot on both CMJ and FMQB for several consecutive weeks.
