Demonic Thrash Metallers Testament have added shows at Oxford and London to their short run of U.K. dates this June. The band will bookend the tour at Oxford's O2 Academy on 19th June, and London's Brooklyn Bowl on 23rd June.
The new shows are in addition to the thrash icons dates at Leamington Spa on 21st June, and Southampton on 22nd June. The culmination of the jaunt, the London show is being billed as a special 'Thrash’n’Bowl' show. Taking place at the Brooklyn Bowm, in a special treat for sporting metalheads, the band are offering VIP / bowling with the band tickets for the event. Links for tickets to all shows including the special VIP option are available below.
Speaking about the tour front man Chuck Billy says; “Testament are excited to be playing some club dates in England. It’s been a while since we have played some intimate shows there and we can’t wait".
Currently hard at work on the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Dark Roots Of Earth’, the Bay Area band have been working for the past year on the record. Due for release this summer via Nuclear Blast, it's expected to be ready in time for the tour.
