TESTAMENT: Huntington Concert To Be Filmed For Upcoming DVD

TESTAMENT's February 15 concert at the Paramount Theatre in Huntington, New York as part of "The Dark Roots Of Thrash" tour will be professionally filmed for a 90-minute DVD, to be released via Nuclear Blast.

In a recent interview with RockMusicStar.com, TESTAMENT vocalist Chuck Billy stated about the band's current tour: "We have a new show, with new songs that we are going to perform. We had previously played three legs of a tour with ANTHRAX, so we are trying to put in some new songs for this one, do a new show. We also plan on filming a DVD on this tour. We did a couple live DVDs/CDs, and we want to do some songs that are not on those, and to create something new … Our set will be about an hour and a half, with five songs off of the new record, 'Dark Roots Of Earth'."
