Testament sets second leg of tour with Exodus, Death Angel

Testament has announced the second leg of the Bay Strikes Back Tour also featuring Exodus and Death Angel, kicking off in September 2022.

“We’ve all been having a killer time playing a lot of sold out shows for die hard metal fans across the U.S. and we wanna keep the party rolling!” Testament frontman Chuck Billy said.

Testament guitarist Eric Peterson said: “We’re so excited to do a second leg of Bay Strikes Back Tour into Canada. Its been a ling time coming and now things are starting to gel with Dave. We will be adding some newer songs and some older ones too into the set METAL!”

“This tour has been so raging, so crushing, what do we do to follow it up? We do it again!” Exodus guitarist Gary Holt said. “Exodus will be joining Testament and Death Angel for another round of the Bay Strikes Back Tour in the U.S.! Hitting some major markets and also Canada! More Brutality on tap for all, come join the violence!”

Death Angel vocalist Mark Osegueda said: “I can’t begin to tell all of you how excited Death Angel is that this AMAZING tour has been extended with a second leg of North American dates! Night after night all three bands see how amazing the crowd reactions have been and we as band members are also so appreciative that we’re back doing what we love doing most of all! Playing music and exchanging energy with the most passionate fans of all! Thrash metal Fans! The Bay Strike Back Tour is extending it’s endless reach! See you on the road!!”

The first leg of the tour this spring has featured former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo’s return to Testament.

“I’ll state the obvious,” Billy said. “We are more than overwhelmed to welcome back Dave Lombardo to play drums with Testament. We are so excited to share the stage again with Lombardo. Dave added immense power when he joined the band for ‘The Gathering’ (release), and we are ecstatic to see what new flavor he will bring back to Testament.”

“This is a long-awaited reunion that was bound to happen,” Lombardo said. “Once upon a time, we created a thrash masterpiece. I have no doubt that our musical chemistry will pick up exactly where we left off. I love the Testament family and am very excited to be joining them once again. Pure brutality awaits.”

Peterson said: “Having Dave Lombardo join us again feels like we are picking up where unfinished business had left off.  There is a silver lining to every cloud and working again with Dave calls for us to celebrate with our horns held high!”
