Just as they did for their forthcoming album, Testament have once again called on Gene “The Atomic Clock” Hoglan to handle drum duties for them on their upcoming co-headlining tour with Anthrax.
Gene — perhaps best known for his work with Death and Strapping Young Lad — will sit behind the kit for Testament from October 28 through November 13; the remainining dates will see Testament joined by John Tempesta of Exodus and The Cult fame.
Commented Hoglan: “As many of you know, I just played on the new Testament record, Dark Roots Of Earth, which went amazingly well. The dudes were kind enough ask me to join them for a couple weeks on this tour with Anthrax and Death Angel. I’m super-stoked to do the shows. It’s going to be a great time. Just so everybody knows, I will be selling my drum instructional DVD, ‘The Atomic Clock,’ at the shows (shameless plug). If you can’t make it out to one of the shows, buy it online!”
Hoglan has been filling in for Paul Bostaph, who is recovering from a “serious injury.”
I can not wait to hear Gene’s work on the new Testament, which also boasts contributions from our pal Chris Adler of Lamb of God.
