Dave Lombardo Says He Has 'Ended' Philm

(Classic Rock) Dave Lombardo has announced that he's dissolved Philm. The drummer formed the band in 2012 with Civil Defiance frontman Gerry Paul Nestler and guitarist and bassist Pancho Tomaselli of War.

Speculation surrounded the group's future last month, when they pulled two planned shows in Los Angeles and Pomona. The stickman's new punk outfit Dead Cross stepped in to play the dates instead

When asked if the band had split, their label UDR told TeamRock they were still together. But Lombardo says he's no longer associated with the group who released the albums Harmonic in 2012 and Fire From The Evening Sun in 2014.

He tells Let There Be Talk: "I'm not with that band anymore. They didn't want me to promote the band while I was with them, and I'm certainly not going to do it when I'm without them. 'Don't play hard. We want you to play a little softer.' I said, 'Nope.'"

He later posted messages on social media confirming that the band were no more. He says: "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 f***in' drums." Listen to the interview here.
