It looks like Gene "The Atomic Clock" Hoglan will be joining Bay Area thrash metal band Testament on the road for their upcoming co-headlining tour with Anthrax. Gene will sit behind the kit from October 28 through November 13. For the remainining tour dates, John Tempesta will be bashing for the band.
Due to a serious injury, regular Testament drummer Paul Bostaph is unable to take part in the tour. Paul was also absent from the recording sessions for the band's new album Dark Roots Of Earth.
Hoglan commented, "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."
