Ex-SLAYER Drummer DAVE LOMBARDO Has 'Two Surprises' In Store

July 23, 2016

Former SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo says that he has two "surprises" planned for his fans, both of which will be revealed before the end of the year.

Lombardo, who has been touring with SUICIDAL TENDENCIES for the last few months in addition to playing select shows with his DEAD CROSS project, was asked by Orbita Rock three weeks ago at the Rock Al Parque festival in Bogota, Colombia what is coming up for him in the near future. He said: "I have a new DEAD CROSS album coming out and two other surprises that I'm gonna release in the next, probably, six months, which I can't talk about."

As previously reported, Lombardo is rumored to have been recruited by the classic-era lineup of the horror punk outfit MISFITS to play drums for the band for their upcoming shows at the end of the summer.

Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein will reunite for first time since 1983 to headline this year's Riot Fest.

The reunion, billed as "The Original Misfits," will take place at the Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago. The first show is scheduled for September 2-4 at Denver's Riot Fest And Rodeo, while the second will happen at Riot Fest And Carnival, set for September 16-18 in Chicago.

SUICIDAL TENDENCIES' new album, "World Gone Mad", will be released on September 30. The follow-up to 2013's "13" disc will be the band's first to feature Lombardo and guitarist Jeff Pogan, who replaced Nico Santora in May.

In addition to Lombardo, DEAD CROSS features members of THE LOCUST and RETOX.
