In conjunction with the release of the new album Dark Roots of Earth (out July 31 on Nuclear Blast Records), legendary Bay Area thrashers Testament are giving fans a chance to see the band for free in their hometown.

Here's how it works:

When you pre-order the new album from the NB USA / CM Distro web shop, email them at mail@nuclearblastusa.com (E-mail Subject must read: Testament - Radio Contest Entry) and include your name, order confirmation number AND 106.3 The Buzz (the radio station name where you heard the new Testament single, "True American Hate").

If we receive the most entries, the band will be coming to here to play and even better, anyone who submitted their valid contest entry for The Buzz will also get FREE entry into the show!

The contest ends July 30 and the winning station will be picked August 3.

So yeah, it may be a long shot for us here in Wichita Falls, but it never hurts to try. Not to mention the fact that you usually receive the disc in advance of the street date when you pre-order and IT'S THE NEW TESTAMENT ALBUM!!
