Suicidal Tendencies have indicated that Dave Lombardo will feature on their next album.

The band shared a clip of the former Slayer sticksman tracking drums in the studio, along with the caption: “Beating out today’s sermon in the Church of Suicidal, the Godfather of double-kick, Dave Lombardo! September 2016. You’ve been warned. #suicidaltendencies #suicidal #cyco #newrecord #september2016 #straightoutofvenice.”

In February it was announced that Lombardo would be touring with Suicidal Tendencies in place of their regular drummer Eric Moore. There’s been no official word on Moore’s status within the band.

Earlier this year, frontman Mike Muir praised Lombardo for his talent and his “musical mindset.”

Meanwhile, Suicidal Tendencies are touring Europe until next month.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
