According to Bravewords, American thrash metal veterans Toxik are reuniting for the second time in their career. The reformation will feature original members Josh Christian and Mike Sanders, as well as former bass player, Brian Bonini, although they are currently searching for a drummer due to the refusal of Tad Leger to take part.

A statement reads as follows: "After a defunct attempt at a reunion in 2007, founding member Josh Christian has officially announced Toxik is once again active and ready for live action as well as a full length release."

Josh Christian commented: "I've been writing this crazy heavy stuff for the last year. In 2007 when we got together, the absence of new material made the reunion feel more like jam sessions. This time around it's based like it was originally on a collection of songs with a Vibe. The plan is: record and perform."

Christian added: "Tad is on the verge of something killer with his doom project/band Lucertola. It's his baby as he writes the material and plays guitar essentially leading the band. We had planned on finishing the Lucertola disc together and then beginning work on a Toxik disc, at least that was discussed; the reality is he can't walk away from his art, and I totally respect that decision, we all do. I'm still hoping Tad shows up on at least one track but either way best of luck to my brother Tad Leger and Lucertola."

They have announced both years ago, so I highly doubt it is going to happen this time round
