“To be clear: I did not “exit” PHILM, I ENDED PHILM. Thank you to all who supported that band. Now, I’m off to the studio to do what I love.. play the fuckin’ drums.”

Original Story:

Former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo is no longer a member of PHILM. As to why exactly he did so remains a mystery as he recently told Dean Delray on the ‘Let There Be Talk‘ podcast:

“I’m not gonna talk about it. They didn’t want me to promote the band while I was with them, and I’m certainly not gonna do it when I’m without them.”

“I don’t wanna talk about it anymore. Yeah, so I just said, ‘See ya!”

Lombardo has enough on his plate to keep him busy however, having recently been in the studio with Dead Cross—his new outfit that also features members of The Locust & Retox. Sessions took place with producer Ross Robinson (Slipknot, Korn), while release details are pending.
