Unearth Recruit Wovenwar/Ex-As I Lay Dying Drummer Jordan Mancino For Summer Tour


Unearth drummer Nick Pierce recovery from the surgery he had this past May is taking longer than expected. Pierce went under the knife to have bulged fragments of a disc in his back extracted and at the time and originally hoped to recover in a few weeks time. Now comes word that the band hare recruited Wovenwar/ex-As I Lay Dying drummer Jordan Mancino for their summer touring, here’s their statement on the matter:

“With Nick Pierce recovering from back surgery and still unable to tour, we’ve called on our long time friend and true musician/performer Jordan Mancino to tackle drum duties for all of our upcoming dates through August.

Jordan is a force behind the kit and we are grateful he’s available to help us continue the #watchingtheworldtour in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and much of Europe while Nick continues his road back to touring.

Mancino adds, “I am stoked to have this honor filling in for my brother, Nick, while he recovers and heals from his surgery. It’s a daunting task to fill Nick‘s shoes and to play with the metal legacy that is UNEARTH. I will do my best to support all that is the mosh that Unearth will bring this next month and a half.”

Pierce had this to say about his temporary replacement. “My man Jordan Mancino of Wovenwar will be ripping the kit until I return later this year. Jordan is an incredibly tight drummer and hits hard as hell, I can’t wait to see what he does for Unearth!”
