Testament at Wellmont Theater, Oct 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)

Bay Area thrashers Testament will team with Overkill, Flotsam & Jetsam and 4arm for a string of dates in the new year, kicking off at The Filmore in San Francisco. From there, look for the bands to head south and eastward, eventually towards the New York area for two dates: Feb 14 at Best Buy Theater in NYC and Feb 15th at The Paramount on Long Island. Tickets for Best Buy go on AMEX presale at 10AM on Wed (11/28), with regular sale hitting on Friday (11/30), while tickets for The Paramount are currently on Citi presale  with regular sale also hitting on Friday.

The trek, named "Dark Roots of Thrash", is a play on the name of Testament's new album title Dark Roots of The Earth, out now via Century Media. Stream a track from that LP alongside a list of all tour dates below.
