Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters/Nirvana, etc. fame has proclaimed Baptists drummer Nick Yacyshyn his “favorite new drummer by far.” Yacyshyn commented to CBC.ca on receiving the honor:
“Dave has been a big time influence of mine and he’s up there and one of the guys I absolutely look up to as far as musicians and just as one of the best drummers of all time. When you’re a kid and you listen to Nirvana, it blows your mind and I was into Foo Fighters and Queens Of The Stone Age too.”
Grohl initially revealed his love for the band and Yacyshyn‘s playing, posting this live video on the Foo Fighters Facebook with the caption “Drummers Beware!!!”. Baptists are currently in pre-production for their next album which they will be tracking soon at GodCity Studio with Converge‘s Kurt Ballou.
