Testament lose bassist Christian

testamentTestament have announced a surprise line-up change, confirming that bassist Greg Christian has left and been replaced by former member Steve DiGiorgio.

Christian, who dropped off the band’s November US tour for “personal reasons”, says he has another musical project in the works, to be revealed soon.

Testament reported yesterday: “It is with much respect that we announce our mutual parting with Greg. Metal fretless bass pioneer Steve will be returning. We are looking forward to continuing the momentum you, the fans, have made possible.”

That was followed by a brief note from Christian, who said: “I’ll have a musical announcement soon, as soon as the vocals are ready. I don’t want to say too much until I can bust it out, and it’s dependent on the vocals now.”

DiGiorgio, who’ll record bass tracks for the twelfth Testament album, previously appeared on their 1999 release The Gathering and its 2001 follow-up First Strike Still Deadly.
