And the New Full-Time Bassist for Megadeth Is…

It’s James LoMenzo! Who’s obviously played with them before.

Yes, just shortly after revealing that Testament’s Steve DiGiorgio of Testament played on their new album, the band have announced LoMenzo as their full-time bassist.

The band made their announcement today via Facebook, writing:

“Megadeth announce bass player James LoMenzo as a permanent member of the band. LoMenzo was Megadeth’s bass player in the mid-2000s and recently stepped back in as a touring member for The Metal Tour of the Year. LoMenzo now officially rejoins the Megadeth family.

Says frontman Dave Mustaine:

“I am thrilled to welcome back James to the Megadeth family. James rejoined the fold as the touring bassist and it’s been a blast having him back, we thought let’s make it permanent.”

And according to James…

“I’m so excited to rejoin Megadeth and move forward full steam into the next phase of this iconic band’s history! With Dave, Kiko and Dirk there’s no stopping us! It just feels great to be home again.”

There you go — good for James.
