As I Lay Dying have recruited ex-Unearth drummer Nick Pierce for their current U.S. tour. He will be filling in for Jordan Mancino, who is sitting out the trek due to “ongoing internal issues.” This news comes after the band previously recruited bassist/vocalist Ryan Neff (Miss May I) and guitarist Ken Susi (Unearth) following the departures of Josh Gilbert and Nick Hipa.
As I Lay Dying issued the following statement:
“We are pleased to announce that Nick Pierce, formerly of Unearth, will be playing drums for AILD on the “Two Decades of Destruction Tour” starting tonight in Las Vegas with @whitechapelband @shadowofintentofficial @ovsulfur
We’ve toured with Nick many times over the years so we’re stoked to have not only a long time friend out with us, but a phenomenal musician. The level of precision and power in Nick Pierce’s playing has taken our songs to a whole new level.
Nick had the task of learning 20 songs in a limited amount of time and he nearly played the entire set flawlessly at our first rehearsal. It’s been inspiring to witness his dedication and strong work ethic to keep AILD performing at the standard our fans expect from us.
We even had time to jump in the studio with Nick and track drums for a new song we are putting out soon so keep an eye out 🤘🏽
We are just pulling up into Las Vegas for night 1 of the “The Decades of Destruction Tour”, we can’t wait to perform and see our fans again!”
