Chuck Billy (Testament) said the following:

“It’s finally happening!!!! All of us have spoken over the years of how killer it would be to tour together and bring Bay Area Thrash Metal across the world and we are starting in Europe. I’m sure I can speak for all three bands in saying that we are proud of where we all came from and we are still delivering some of the best thrash metal we can to the fans. Be ready for the Bay Area Strikes Back Tour 2020.”

Gary Holt (Exodus) added:

“I am fired up to FINALLY return to Europe with Exodus! Along with our Bay Area friends Testament and Death Angel! An epic tour for the ages! Looking forward to crushing everyone Bay Area style! See you there!!! I cannot wait!”

Rob Cavestany (Death Angel) also commented:

“We couldn’t be more excited to announce our upcoming tour with Testament and Exodus! Bay Area Thrash Attack in full force! All three bands have been close friends for decades and our mutual respect is of the highest level. That said, we will surely push each other to go beyond expectations each and every night. This is a first – the three of us have never toured together in the same package… it’s about time! See you in the pit!”

Death Angel Premiere New Song “The Pack”

Death Angel have premiered a new song titled “The Pack.” This track is from the band’s new album “Humanicide,” which will be released on May 31.

Rob Cavestany commented:

“‘The Pack’ is inspired by and dedicated to our fans. When I wrote this song, we had just come home from tour and I was still feeling the rush of performing at open air festivals. The energy exchange between us on stage and the mass of metal heads in the crowd is unlike any other. I wanted to capture it in a song about unity, like our song ‘Kill As One’.

Our fan club is called ‘The Pack.’ Our fans get it! But it’s not only for them, it also branches out to represent our families, friends, team, crew… and all metalheads! We feel honored to belong to this worldwide ‘pack.’ This song requires crowd participation, we are SO looking forward to playing it live!”

Death Angel To Release New Album “Humanicide” In May, Stream Title Track

Death Angel have announced that their new album “Humanicide” will be released on May 31. You can stream the title track below:

Mark Osegueda commented:

“I wanted to write something that metal fans could really grasp on to. Something dark and intense, that still makes sense. Right now, I think it’s so apparent that the earth is in a sickened state.”

Rob Cavestany added:

“When I wrote the music for our song ‘Humanicide’, I was shooting for an album opener that would have all the elements of an epic thrash opus. This meant a classic metal style intro leading into a ferocious ‘Bay Area Thrash Riff-o-Rama’ — complete with a crazy middle build-up section to ramp up the circle pit until it’s all whipped up into a frenzy by the time the frenetic guitar solo hits, then concluding with a maniacal musical section leading into the outro. All it needed was the lyrics and vocal delivery to match the intensity and Mark went above and beyond the call of duty. Some of his best work, in my opinion. One of my favorite DA songs, for sure, it feels like the follow-up to our song ‘Thrown To The Wolves’. Can’t wait to play it live.

I’m ecstatic to present Death Angel’s ninth studio album, ‘Humanicide’. This collection of songs represents the band in its current state — united, vital, intense and (still) hungry like the wolf! I wanted this record to be quite diverse stylistically while obviously keeping with the parameters of metal. DA has been known to push the envelope and we absolutely did this time. So many emotions are expressed through our music, I’m very much looking forward to adding these songs into our live set list. As I savor this rare feeling of satisfaction, we proudly unleash this beast upon thee.”
