Inferno will be missing Behemoth’s summer tour with Slayer and Lamb Of God, due him needing to be home for the birth of his child. During his absence, Jon Rice (ex-Job For A Cowboy) will handle the drumming duties for the band.
The band commented:
We must announce that our drummer, Inferno will not be taking part in the upcoming Slayer tour with Lamb of God:
“I am going to be a father for the second time in my life and it’s going to happen in July of 2017. I therefore must apologize to all our fans for not being able to participate in the 2017 Summer, North American tour. I believe that Jon Rice, an amazing drummer, a truly experienced musician, and a good friend of ours, will flawlessly take over my drum throne for this short period and will set the stage on fire!” – Inferno
As much of a disappointment it is not to have our brother with us, we completely support Inferno in this amazing chapter of his life. Rest assured, we’re still bringing one HELL of a show with us and look forward to seeing our North American, Legions in full force!”
