HEAVY METAL TITANS TESTAMENT JOIN SLAYER & MEGADETH TO KICK OFF OF THE  ‘AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR’

– THE HISTORY-MAKING METAL TOUR TO BEGIN IN QUEBEC ON JULY 23RD!

The Bay Area’s premier thrash kings TESTAMENT are geared up and ready to tear apart North America with fellow heavy metal heavyweights Slayer and Megadeth on the highly anticipated AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR! The thrash trifecta will be joining forces for the first time in 20 years since the Clash of the Titans Tour in 1990! Don’t miss this renowned event in heavy metal history!

“We’re gearing up to start what will be known as the heaviest thrash event ever,” states TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson. “Slayer, Megadeth and Testament haven’t shared the stage since the original and first tour in 1990 of Clash of the Titans in Europe. New thrash fans that only heard rumors and never were able to witness Clash of the Titans will be delighted because all three bands are just as heavy and lethal as ever, if not more. Old school thrash fans, if you missed the line-up before, you don’t want to miss this!” Peterson added, “We’ve had great success during the two and a half year The Formation of Damnation campaign, and feel honored and excited to end the campaign with a tour like this. After the AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR, we head straight into the studio to work on new material for our forthcoming record, releasing mid 2011 through Nuclear Blast Records.”

In celebration of this heralded event, TESTAMENT is offering an amazing opportunity with their VIP package. This is the fan’s chance to meet the band and get exclusive limited addition merchandise on this epic tour before Testament head into the studio to record the follow up to their Golden Gods “Album of the Year”, The Formation Of Damnation! Now, the Testament VIP package offers some great additions, including an exclusive TESTAMENT Affliction T-shirt!

Front man Chuck Billy reflected on the VIP experience that TESTAMENT fans can expect this summer:

“If there is one thing true about us, we love our fans so much that we want to hang out with them, give them special shit and then throw them INTO THE PIT!  This tour is huge, with three of the greatest bands in metal reuniting after 20 years.  We want to make you a part of this special event.  So hook yourself up with a TESTAMENT AMERICAN CARNAGE TOUR VIP Pack today.”
