Testament To Split?
Testament guitarist Eric Peterson has suggested the band's current lineup might not last if its next album isn't a big success. "There's definitely some politics in the band now," he told Radio Fireball (via Classic Rock). "If the record does good, which I think it will, it'll see Testament doing another record." Peterson, who co-founded the band, says he'll stick around no matter what, but he's not that all the other members feel the same. "There's some people in the band, I think, aren't a hundred percent there unless it keeps going good. That's pretty extreme. "If Testament sees darker days, I don't know if this lineup would stick." Several members have quit Testament in the past. Guitarist Alex Skolnick and bassist Greg Christian are both on their third run with the band. Drummer Gene Hoglan has quit once before returning again. Frontman Chuck Billy has been with the band since 1986. He says their current album "Dark Roots Of The Earth" will be a hard one to top, but said: "We're pretty confident and comfortable as band members and friends at this point with Testament having Alex and Greg back in the fold. It was real natural." Meanwhile, the band has posted a new set of dates for a UK tour in November (via Metal Hammer): 11/27 Glasgow Garage 11/28 Wolverhampton Wulfrun Hall 11/29 Manchester HMV Ritz 11/30 London KOKO Are you worried that Testament won't last in its current form? Who would you recruit for its lineup? Let us know in the comments.
