James LoMenzo joins Megadeth

Megadeth have announced their touring replacement for bassist David Ellefson, who was dismissed from the group on May 24. Former Megadeth bassist and long time Ashdown user James LoMenzo will man the bass for the thrash legends' upcoming tour with Lamb of God.

Armed with his trusty ABM rig comprising of an ABM-1200 and a pair of ABM-810's. James has already been having great comments on his tone and excited to getting back to touring.

LoMenzo, also known for his time in White Lion and Black Label Society, was a member of Megadeth from 2006 to 2010, playing on 2007's United Abominations and 2009's Endgame.

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

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