There was a big gap because of COVID. But now we’re getting ready — probably after this tour to go start working on new material. So, yeah, I’m looking forward to that. We have about five, six songs written already, and [I’ll] probably try to finish it up when I get home. And then hopefully record right after we go on tour to Japan. So ’24 should look like a release for Testament.
I’m a fan. For me, I wouldn’t release anything unless I’m a fan of what I’m doing. I have to get goosebumps. When I hear it, I’m, like, ‘Yeah.’ And then, of course, I play it for friends. A few of them go, ‘Ehh.’ But most of them go, ‘Fuuuck!’ Except Chuck — Chuck goes, ‘Eh.’ And then four years later, [he goes], ‘That’s the best song ever. Write more shit like that.’ I’m, like, ‘Yeah, but four years ago you said that sucked.’
