San Francisco Bay Area thrashers TESTAMENT have tapped drummerAlex Bent (BATTLECROSS, DECREPIT BIRTH) to sit behind the kit for the band performances in Japan (October 10 at the Loud Park festival) and Hawaii (October 11 in Honolulu).

Bent previously played with TESTAMENT on August 8 at the Heavy Montreal festival at Parc Jean-Drapeau in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. He was filling in for longtime TESTAMENT drummer Gene Hoglan, who was forced to miss the gig due to his touring commitments in Europe with DEATH TO ALL (DTA).
