Steve DiGiorgio

TESTAMENT bassist Steve DiGiorgio has tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

DiGiorgio‘s test results were revealed by TESTAMENT frontman Chuck Billy, who also recently got positive for coronavirus.

Steve, our bass player, just tested on Thursday, he got his results back, and they’re positive,” Billy said to Joshua Toomey of Diabolus In Podcastica. “And that’s after a couple of weeks of being sick. So it made us think, ‘Are we still contagious?’, even though the doctors and the CDC [Centers For Disease Control And Prevention] told us that, ‘Go ahead and go to the store. Go out. Wear a mask.’ But you just don’t know. We don’t know if we’re ill or not.”

EXODUS guitarist Gary Holt also revealed that he had tested positive for COVID-19.

Holt revealed on his Instagram: “So I finally received my test results back and positive it was. Lisa‘s came back negative, and it’s been long enough since my symptoms that I am officially in the clear to do the only things I’m allowed, like buy my own groceries! I feel great, made it through the tougher moments, and my health feels 100 percent normal. Thanks to everyone who had wished us well. Now it’s time to start working on some new EXODUS riffs while I’m still basically stuck in my house!”

TESTAMENT‘s new album, Titans Of Creation, is out today on Nuclear Blast. You can get the album here.
