If you asked your average thrash fan to pick one band out of Testament, Exodus, or Death Angel, they’d probably have a hard time only selecting one. Thankfully, thrashers can have all of them, as the three acts have now announced a massive U.S. tour to kick off this fall.

‘The Bay Strikes Back’ tour will launch this October in California and do a massive loop that takes them through the south, up the East Coast, and then back around to the southwest (with Halloween spent in the most horrific place on earth: Ohio). Tickets for the shows go on sale this Thursday, July 1st, at 10am local time. Tickets for previously-rescheduled Testament dates will be honored.

“Finally we are able to announce this suspended tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic!” says Testament’s Eric Peterson. “We are totally excited to get out on the road again and continue where we left off supporting our newest release Titans Of Creation! Along with our brothers of thrash Exodus and Death Angel! Get your tickets now! Horns up!!!!!”
