Sitting behind the drums for some of the upcoming shows will be SADUS skinsman Jon Allen, who will be filling in for original TESTAMENT drummer Louie Clemente while Louie is busy taking care of other matters. However, original members Alex Skolnick (guitar) and Greg Christian (bass) have both signed on for the forthcoming dates, TESTAMENT's manager — Phil Arnold of the Thrill Entertainment Group — told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "We'll do more shows this year, some with Louie some with Johnny Tempesta [HELMET, ex-ROB ZOMBIE, EXODUS]," Arnold said.

TESTAMENT's last studio album, "The Gathering", was released in 1999.
