AMEN, the band led by firebrand frontman Casey Chaos, is working on a brand new album for release later this year and is set for its long-awaited return to the U.K. this August. In addition, the band is excited to announce the enlistment of former SLAYER and current PHILM drummer Dave Lombardo to AMEN’s ranks. The refreshed lineup — completed by John Fahnestock on bass, Duke Decter and John King on guitars — is already neck deep in work on a new album with longtime producer Ross Robinson (KORN, LIMP BIZKIT, SEPULTURA).
Says Lombardo: “I am very proud to have been asked to be part of this amazing production with Casey Chaos and Ross Robinson.
“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.
“I’m looking forward to performing with AMEN before returning to Europe with PHILM in September.”
Adds Casey Chaos: “It’s great to be working again with Dave, this time in AMEN. He brought so much power, aggression and passion to the music on the new record, in a way only he could only deliver. Without question this is THE most important album I’ve ever made. I’m looking forward to unleashing it live and destroying ourselves for your pleasure!”
