Testament Hoping To Release New Album In 2023

During a recent appearance on SiriusXM’s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” Testament frontman Chuck Billy revealed that the band are hoping to release a new album in 2023. The effort will be the band’s first since reuniting with drummer Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer).

Billy said the following when asked about working with Lombardo again:

“We had a great time. I think he really enjoys playing in the band, enjoys the music. And we’re now talking about, ‘Let’s talk about maybe making a new record.’ So hopefully that’s in the future.”

He also added the following when asked if the band already have new music in the works”

“Well, [guitarist] Eric [Peterson] has a bunch of music. He doesn’t really like working, putting his head — he’s gotta go all in mentally to create some songs. So after this tour [the second U.S. leg of ‘The Bay Strikes Back’ with EXODUS, and DEATH ANGEL], we don’t have anything in the books till April. So from November till April, it’s time to get in there and start working on new songs. So hopefully we’ll have a new record out by next year.”
