Shattered Sun join “Dark Roots of Thrash II” tour alongside Testament and Exodus

New album Hope Within Hatred available April 21

Texas metal assailants Shattered Sun will be joining the Dark Roots Of Thrash II Tour, undoubtedly the most crushing heavy metal tour to hit North America this (Northern) spring, as direct support to legendary thrash titans Testament and Exodus. Shattered Sun took the roots of their Southern backdrop, infusing state-of-the-art metal and created Hope Within Hatred, the debut album to be released April 21, 2015 via Victory Records.

'We are ecstatic to announce this tour with Testament and Exodus,' offers Shattered Sun frontman Marcos Leal. 'This will be our first national tour and we couldn't be more ready to represent and show the world what we are all about!  We have been anticipating getting out there and playing our new album Hope Within Hatred to the fans, so the moment we have been fighting for has finally arrived!  Thank you to Testament for having us out, this is a huge honour for us and we look forward to wreaking havoc with our brothers in metal Exodus.'

Exodus guitarist Gary Holt adds, 'Exodus are very excited in the most violent of fashion to announce our part in the Dark Roots of Thrash II tour with our old friends and label mates Testament, as well as soon to be new friends Shattered Sun!'
