Bay area thrash legends Testament revealed to Greek webzine Rock Overdose (see article here) that the band will be filming a video for the new song "Native Blood." The song appears on the forthcoming LP "Dark Roots of Earth," which is scheduled for release on July 27th, 2012 (Europe) and July 31st, 2012 (North America) via Nuclear Blast Records. Pre-orders are available now at this location.

Guitarist Eric Peterson revealed the details: "We are working on a video right now… actually we start tomorrow. It’s gonna be for the song 'Native Blood.' We’re gonna film it in an Indian reservation. It’s about people who were oppressed in life. We haven’t done one (video) in a while, so we’re kind of excited about that."

In the interview, Peterson elaborated on the injury to drummer Paul Bostaph that led to his departure last December:

"Paul Bostaph got injured about a year and a half ago and he was ordered by his doctor to stop playing for a while and it just kept taking a lot of time. We needed to get started for the record and Paul told us to start without him, but it kept going further and further and we ended getting a drummer for the record. We found Gene Hoglan who played with us in the 'Demonic' album."

I can't wait to hear the new album in full. I'm expecting the same greatness Testament had on The Formation of Damnation.
