Thrash metal tour packages are always special. The unique sense of brotherhood between both bands and fans is ever present while circle pits decimate those who dare enter. Beginning in April, thrash legends Testament and Exodus will hit the road together, bringing Shattered Sun along for the 'Dark Roots of Thrash II' tour.

Testament are one of metal's best and most powerful live bands. The group constantly delivers five-star performances, but this time around, Testament has a special surprise planned. For this batch of North American shows, Testament will perform an exclusive headlining set comprised of full performances of the albums The Legacy (1987) and The New Order (1988), as well as select cuts from Practice What You Preach (1989).

Exodus and returning vocalist Steve 'Zetro' Souza released their latest album, Blood In, Blood Out, in 2014. Expect material from the band's 35-year career.

As for Shattered Sun, the band will release Hope Within Hatred via Victory Records on April 21. To check out our exclusive premiere of the album's title track, click here.
