Bay Strikes Back Tour Poster

The Bay is ready to strike back again as Testament, Exodus, and Death Angel are teaming up for a second leg of tour dates. The “Bay Strikes Back” tour will bring the thrash titans together again starting September 9th in Phoenix, Arizona.

The lineup, of course, includes three of the best metal bassists in the world: Testament’s Steve Di Giorgio, Exodus’s Jack Gibson, and Death Angel’s Damien Sisson. For Testament, it will also feature the return of drummer Dave Lombardo.

“I’ll state the obvious, We are more than overwhelmed to welcome back Dave Lombardo to play drums with Testament,” singer Chuck Billy says. “We are so excited to share the stage again with Lombardo. Dave added immense power when he joined the band for The Gathering (release), and we are ecstatic to see what new flavor he will bring back to Testament.”

The tour dates will quickly head into the Midwest and South before heading up the East Coast. They’ll head into Canada to head back west to end up in California at the San Jose Civic Center on October 15th.
