San Francisco’s Testament have recently undergone a shift within their lineup, and are happy to announce that bassist Steve DiGiorgio has rejoined the group. DiGiorgio is no stranger to Testament, and has also occupied bass duties for such names as Death, Sadus, and Dragonlord (featuring Testament guitarist Eric Peterson).
Testament’s official statement reads: “It is with much respect that we announce our mutual parting with bassist Greg Christian. Metal fretless bass pioneer Steve DiGiorgio will be returning to Testament.
“Steve was previously a member of Testament on The Gathering (1999) as well as First Strike Still Deadly (2001). He will be joining Testament on their upcoming shows in Australia on the Soundwave Festival, Japan and Mexico City. Steve will also be taking part in the new Testament album. We are looking forward to continuing the momentum you, the fans, have made possible.”
Recently, the band had announced that Christian would not be joining them on their North American tour with Lamb Of God and Killswitch Engage due to ‘personal reasons’, leaving bass duties in the hands of Jack Gibson, bassist for Exodus.
