"The Dark Roots Of Thrash Tour" Has Begun, TESTAMENT & OVERKILL Make History Together!

Yesterday (January 30), TESTAMENT kicked off their North American tour with OVERKILL, FLOTSAM & JETSAM (on select dates), and 4ARM. History was written at the first show, which took place at the Fillmore in San Francisco, California. Not only was it the first concert of TESTAMENT's first headlining tour since the release of their phenomenal chart success 'Dark Roots of Earth' (available now via Nuclear Blast Records), but it also marked the first time that the band joined forces with OVERKILL for a tour in over 25 years.

The tour continues tonight at the House Of Blues in Anaheim, California, and will be trekking through the United States until the end of February.
