Testament To Release Remastered Versions Of ‘The Legacy’ And ‘The New Order’

Good news for Testament fans — the band is re-releasing their first two records.

The band will drop remastered versions of their classic albums ‘The Legacy’ and ‘The New Order,’ available digitally and on vinyl via Nuclear Blast Records. The frontman Chuck Billy explained why they are releasing remastered versions:

“When ‘The Legacy’ and ‘The New Order’ were first recorded, we were new and had limited resources to record the albums being a young band. Now, with the remastering, fans will hear the albums in their signature sonic onslaught they were intended to be heard.”

A New Album?

In addition to the surprise remakes of the first two albums, there is a chance that we might hear new songs soon. During an interview with 97 Underground radio station in January, Billy discussed the band’s recording and touring agenda for the next few months. While doing so, he revealed that the band has been working on a new album and that they plan to record it before a certain time:

“Right now we’re on kind of a time restraint because we’re working on a new record. We’re writing it right now. And we have to get it done and record it before we leave in July. That’s our goal. So right now we’re working hard on that.”

He named the ‘special’ shows and added:

“So there’s only a few shows before July, which is these two one-offs, the special shows we’re gonna do in Connecticut and West Virginia; one’s at the Foxwoods and one’s at Hollywood Casino. And those shows we’re gonna play ‘The Legacy’ and ‘The New Order’ in their entirety because in March we’re gonna re-release those on Nuclear Blast Records.”
