As I Lay Dying announced in its recent Facebook post that Nick Pierce would be with the band as the new drummer for the upcoming tour.

In the previous month, As I Lay Dying informed the fans about the departure of the bassist Josh Gilbert on its official social media platform. The group mentioned that Gilbert wanted to part ways to pursue new opportunities in his musical career. Both sides thanked each other for the years they spent together.

After Gilbert, the second departure news from the band came in the previous days. The drummer Jordan Mancino announced on his Instagram that he decided to leave the band because of the ongoing issues within the group. He informed the audience that he would not be a part of the upcoming tour.

Recently, AILD shared a Facebook post introducing former Unearth member Nick Pierce as the new drummer. As the group mentioned, they toured with Pierce several times before and were happy to see him with them together again. They stated that Pierce did an excellent job during the rehearsal in a short period. AILD expressed their excitement to meet with fans soon.

AILD wrote on the Facebook post:

“We are pleased to announce that Nick Pierce, formerly of Unearth, will be playing drums for AILD this tour. 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 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!”

The band recently parted ways with two band members at very short intervals. As they informed the fans, Nick Pierce would be on the upcoming tour with them, and they have already hit the road for the first show of ‘The Decades of Destruction Tour.’
