LoMenzo chimed in “I’m super stoked to be rejoining Megadeth for the upcoming Metal Tour of the Year. There are no better fans than Megadeth fans, I can’t wait to get out there and shred some Megadeth music with you all.”

The band just wrapped up recording their highly anticipated new album and is moving on to the mixing stage, which according to guitarist and vocalist Dave Mustaine is happening right now. Perhaps we'll hear a song on the tour?
