Veteran San Francisco Bay Area metallers TESTAMENT have added a Perth date to their upcoming Australian tour. Confirmed dates are as follows:

Feb. 07 - Melbourne, Australia @ the Prince of Wales Hotel
Feb. 08 - Sydney, Australia @ the Manning bar
Feb. 09 - Brisbane, Australia @ the Waterloo Hotel
Feb. 11 - Perth, Australia @ the Capital

TESTAMENT is now tentatively planning to enter the studio in early 2007 to record the long-awaited follow-up to 1999's "The Gathering", due before the end of next year.

In a spring 2006 interview with LivingForMetal.com, TESTAMENT guitarist Eric Peterson stated that the upcoming CD will feature the band's original lineup. He said, "We're gonna get Louie [Clemente] to come back to do some songs. The drummer situation, we are probably gonna use a couple of drummers 'cause we've had people that are in our lives and a part of TESTAMENT so it wouldn't be fair to not have these people play on it. Probably Jon Allen from DRAGONLORD and SADUS will play on it, who's also been a part of TESTAMENT and toured with us. Just the way we do things now, we don't tour extensively so it's kind of hard to keep steady players. Like if something comes up and someone's not available we'll go, 'Let's see if this guy's available.' Yeah it's gonna be killer, the new material is sounding pretty old-school. . . Alex's [Skolnick, guitar] got some riffs that he's been sending me and they sound pretty TESTAMENT, just really cool stuff. Like that 'Apocalyptic City' kind of vibe. Good chord progressions with octaves over it."
