  • Monday 11th August 2014


Update: Dave Lombardo (Slayer) joins Amen and will play at Rock City!

Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo has signed up with American punk icons Amen for their next album and tour – and he'll be in the UK with them in August.

Frontman Casey Chaos has confirmed the sticksman, who was last year dropped by the thrash icons after an argument over contracts, will be behind the kit for a studio project also featuring guitarist Duke Decter and John King, plus bassist John Fahnestock and long-time producer Ross Robinson.

Lombardo says: "I'm very proud to have been asked to be part of this amazing production with Casey and Ross. My career in thrash was created from my love of the punk genre.

"It's aggressive, honest and needed. I'm looking forward to performing with Amen before returning to Europe with Philm in September."


"THE MOST DANGEROUS BAND IN THE WORLD HAVE RETURNED" and "Amen remain one of Rock's most enduring and important outfits".  -Big Cheese Magazine

"What we're talking about here is not a band its a weapon, a pipe bomb of pure punk rock genius you must arm yourself with at the soonest possible opportunity." - Melody Maker

AMEN are among the best and most important punk rock bands to emerge in the last decade.

It's as much about the intensity of their delivery as it is their ferocious tunes, and unpredictable live shows,

no matter where they are, AMEN never let up not even for a second.

The whole point is that they play every show like it's their last, almost seeming to will self-destruction upon themselves.

Led by the one man wrecking crew & enigmatic Casey Chaos  whose live performances have garnished him as one of the greatest artists of our time.

The Grammy awarded singers reputation precedes him from his venomous lyrical assaults and live performances .

Shocking the stage worldwide for over 10 years.


Their live shows have become a thing of myth and urban legend... this one is not to be missed!
