Unearth Drummer Nick Pierce To Undergo Back Surgery


Unearth drummer Nick Pierce recently missed some shows with the band due to a back injury. Pierce is now scheduled to undergo surgery for the injury in a few weeks time and commented in a newly released statement:

“Just want to say thanks for everyone’s continued concern and support over the last few weeks since I left the Fury Tour with Unearth early. I can’t express how inspiring it is to have a solid community backing me and showing the love!

Since the initial onset of my back problems over the last few weeks I’ve met up with 3 doctors for separate opinions. The final decision ended up being a microdiscectomy where the surgeon extracts the bulged fragments of disc in my lower back. Success rates for this operation are in the high 80% range, the way the doctors explained it to me made it sound like it wouldn’t be a problem and I would be recovered in 1-2 weeks. Nonetheless, I’m very optimistic things will go well and I’ll be back to enjoying life and starting a healthy recovery soon. Surgery is scheduled for May 10th so wish me luck!
