Former Arctic Monkeys bassist Andy Nicholson has joined Reverend And The Makers.

Although Nicholson, who left Arctic Monkeys in 2006, has played with Reverend And The Makers before, he has not officially been a full member until now.

The band's frontman Jon McClure revealed the news viaTwitter/JonMcClure today (December 23).

McClure wrote: "I'm made up to let u no my brother Andy Nicholson will be joining Rev and the Makers in the new year. Get ready pal."

Nicholson worked with McClure and Arctic Monkeys drummer Matt Helders by curating Sheffield's Tramlines festival earlier this year, and the trio recorded the Mongrel album together.

It is not currently clear how Nicholson will fit into the existing line-up.
