Former the Cult guitarist James Stevenson has rejoined the rock band’s ranks. Mike Dimkich, who was a member in 1993 and then rejoined the band in 1999 during the group’s reformation period, is exiting again to fill in for Bad Religion‘s Greg Hetson on their tour as Hetson deals with personal matters.

This is the second time Stevenson has replaced Dimkich. The first time came back in 1994 and Stevenson remained with the band until they split in 1995.

Stevenson will be appearing with the band for the ‘Electric 13′ gigs, where they plan to play the ‘Electric’ album from start to finish.

Lead guitarist Billy Duffy said, “’Electric’ is very much a two-guitar album. So with Mike moving on, we’ve decided to welcome James back into the fold. As a Cult alumnus he was the obvious choice.”

Stevenson remembers his first stint with the band as good times, saying, “It was great fun for me — just stand at the back and play A and E all night!” Welcome back, James.
