As I Lay Dying Recruit Former Unearth Drummer Nick Pierce For Immediate Touring


As I Lay Dying have announced that they have recruited ex-Underath drummer Nick Pierce for their immediate touring. His addition follows yesterday’s (June 09th) announcement that drummer Jordan Mancino would be sitting out the band’s immediate touring due to ‘internal issues’ within the outfit.

Bassist/vocalist Josh Gilbert announced his exit from the band earlier this year and will be replaced by Miss May I‘s Ryan Neff at the band’s immediate shows, while Unearth guitarist Ken Susi will be filling in on the slot vacated by Nick Hipa in 2020.

As I Lay Dying commented today, June 10th:

“We are pleased to announce that Nick Pierce, formerly of Unearth, will be playing drums for AILD on the “Two Decades of Destruction Tour” starting tonight in Las Vegas with @whitechapelband @shadowofintentofficial @ovsulfur ⁣
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 even had time to jump in the studio with Nick and track drums for a new song we are putting out soon so keep an eye out 🤘🏽⁣
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!⁣”
