Unearth added:

Mike’s contributions on our albums ‘The Oncoming Storm‘ and ‘III-In the Eyes of Fire‘ as well as his unmatched live performances cemented him as part of this band forever and we couldn’t be happier to revisit the stage, those songs and more, together this summer.”

Additionally, Unearth have confirmed the departure of drummer Nick Pierce from their roster. The outfit are currently finishing up their eighth studio album with producer Will Putney (Body Count, Every Time I Die) and it is set to feature Pierce‘s final recorded contributions as a member of the band.
