About the tour, ANTHRAX‘s guitarist Scott Ian comments:
We played to sold-out shows, raging crowds and EPIC war dances, and we can’t wait to do it again, especially for our Canadian fans who have been waiting a long to time ‘worship music’ with us.
Drummer Charlie Benante, also a member of ANTHRAX, adds:
We’ve been tight with the guys in Testament for a long, long time, and had a great time touring with them before. And all of us in Anthrax are big Death Angel fans, so this is going to be a monster of a great time, for us and for the fans.
TESTAMENT guitarist Alex Skolnick also comments:
There have been very few three band bills in which the acts are so compatible and the shows so consistent that a second leg of the tour is a “no-brainer”. But in the case of Anthrax, Testament and Death Angel, that’s been the case. Things have gone so well, in fact, that it’s made sense to add a third leg with this exact same line up. All three bands are excited to take this show into new territory with a trek across Canada, and a few spots in the U.S. we missed last time around. And this time, Testament will be armed with a brand new album with music that we’re eager to share with everyone. Hope to see you out there!
Frontman Chuck Billy, also a member of TESTAMENT, comments as well:
It’s good to see that metal is alive in 2012 and the fans want a third leg of the Anthrax, Testament, Death Angel tour. Don’t fucking miss it! Metal forever!
