Veteran rocker Dave Lombardo has joined Casey Chaos’ group Amen for an upcoming album and tour.

The former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo will join Chaos and Amen’s latest line-up, featuring bassist John Fahnestock and guitarist Duke Decter, when the band tours Europe in August.

Meanwhile, the five-piece has started work on a new album.

Lombardo says, “I am very proud to have been asked to be part of this amazing production. My career in thrash was created from my love of the punk genre. There is an excitement in this particular style of music that’s vital for me. It’s aggressive, honest and needed.”
