Peter Bailey of the Wrexham, Wales-based "Metalheadz" show conducted an interview with vocalist Chuck Billy of San Francisco Bay Area metal veterans TESTAMENT on July 25, 2009 at the Wulfrun Hall in Wolverhampton, England. The 17-minute chat is now available for streaming at this location.TESTAMENT recently canceled its previously announced South American dates in September in order to focus on recording the follow-up to its acclaimed 2008 album, "The Formation Of Damnation". TESTAMENT will make a stop in New York City in August for a special taping of Sirius XM's "Artist Confidential" series. "Artist Confidential" features the most important and timeless artists in music sitting down for candid interviews, intimate conversations with fans and live performances. The show is scheduled to air later this year on Sirius XM's Liquid Metal, Sirius channel 27 and XM channel 42. TESTAMENT has been touring non-stop in support of "The Formation Of Damnation", including this year's Priest Feast tour in Europe with JUDAS PRIEST and a phenomenal run on the Metal Masters tour last summer with HEAVEN & HELL and MOTÖRHEAD. Two classic albums by TESTAMENT — 1997's "Demonic" and 1999's "The Gathering" — were reissued on gatefold double vinyl by Prosthetic Records on February 3. Each features etched artwork on Side D and is limited to 1,000 copies worldwide. Additionally, 100 copies of "Demonic" feature red vinyl, while 100 copies of "The Gathering" feature gold vinyl.
