Testament, Exodus, and Death Angel have added a Fall 2022 North American leg to their ongoing “Bay Strikes Back” tour.

The pioneering Bay Area thrash bands are currently in the midst of the tour’s spring leg, and will head out again in September. Dates for the new shows kick off September 9th in Phoenix and run through October 15th in San Jose, California — with the tour’s first set of Canadian shows falling in the middle of the itinerary. Tickets for the new leg go on sale Friday (April 29th) at 10:00 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster, with pre-sales beginning Thursday (use code ROADIE).

As reported before the spring run, former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo, has joined Testament’s lineup, replacing Gene Hoglan, who left the band to work on other projects. Lombardo was previously briefly a member of Testament in the late ’90s, when he played on their acclaimed 1999 album The Gathering.

“We’re so excited to do a second leg of Bay Strikes Back Tour into Canada,” commented Testament’s Eric Peterson in a press release. “It’s been a long 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!”

Added singer Chuck Billy: “We’ve all been having a killer time playing a lot of sold out shows for diehard metal fans across the US and we wanna keep the party rolling!”

It goes without saying: The bill for the “Bay Strikes Back” tour is stacked, with Exodus and Death Angel completing the legendary triad of thrash.

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