Megadeth reveal bassist for upcoming North American tour

As they prepare to embark upon their co-headlining tour with Lamb Of God, Megadeth have revealed that former Megadeth member James LoMenzo will be handling bass duties on the trek. LoMenzo played bass for Megadeth from 2006 until 2010. (Megadeth have yet to name a replacement for ousted bassist and co-founder David Ellefson.)

Speaking on today's announcement, Dave Mustaine shares, "I’m happy to announce that former bassist and Megadeth alumni James LoMenzo has graciously stepped in on the Metal Tour of The Year. Tour rehearsals just began, and we cannot wait to start crushing North America."


James LoMenzo comments: “I’m super stoked to be rejoining Megadeth for the upcoming Metal Tour of the Year. There are no better fans than Megadeth fans, I can’t wait to get out there and shred some Megadeth music with you all.”

Rounding out the line-up for the "Metal Tour of the Year" are Trivium and Hatebreed.
