“Finally, we are able to announce this suspended tour due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Testament’s Eric Peterson. “We are totally excited to get out on the road again and continue where we left off supporting our newest release Titans of Creation!

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt states, “YES! Finally back on the road! This time we are bringing the ‘Bay Strikes Back’ to our own shores with our good friends Testament and Death Angel! To say this is awesome would be an understatement! Cannot wait!”

“At last the wait is over,” Death Angel said in a statement. “We couldn’t be more pleased to announce the continuation of ‘The Bay Strikes Back Tour’ with our brothers Testament and Exodus! This leg takes us across the United States to bring our brand of Bay Area Thrash to live onstage, coming soon to a theater near you. Join us for a long-overdue release of some serious pent-up energy! We’re gonna blow the roof off these joints! Come be a part of these explosive performances. See you soon!”
