Rivers Of Nihil Part Ways With Founding Vocalist Jake Dieffenbach

Technical death metal outfit Rivers Of Nihil have announced of their co-founding lead vocalist Jake Dieffenbach. A statement issued by the band today, October 20th can be read below:

“We would like to inform our fans and colleagues alike that we’ve parted ways with Jake Dieffenbach. Jake was a founding member of Rivers Of Nihil, and our friend and brother beyond the scope of the band. While this decision wasn’t easy, it was necessary. We ask our friends and fans to allow Jake the space to handle his affairs with dignity and privacy.

The creative core of Rivers Of Nihil is still intact. Brody and Biggs will continue to be the main architects of the music and lyrics, as they have been from the start. Jared has been with us for 5 years and 2 albums already, and we’ve known Andy for so long it feels like he’s been in the band forever.

To that end, rather than bringing in anyone new, Biggs will be taking over lead vocals on the upcoming EU/UK ‘Faces Of Death’ tour, the recently-announced Northeast U.S. dates with Killswitch Engage, and beyond — as he did on the second half of our recent North American tour with The Contortionist — in addition to continuing his duties on bass.

Beyond touring, we have some exciting releases planned for the near future as well. Stay tuned for those announcements soon.”
