AS I LAY DYING Recruits Former UNEARTH Drummer For Tour & New Music

In place of drummer Jordan Mancino.

Nick Pierce

As I Lay Dying drummer Jordan Mancino announced yesterday he would not be joining the band for their tour with Whitechapel and Shadow Of Intent that starts tonight. Mancino said his choice was the result of "a number of ongoing internal issues with As I Lay Dying that need to be worked out," and that he would not be joining the band until the issues were resolved. As I Lay Dying has now announced they've recruited former Unearth drummer Nick Pierce for the trek, and even mentioned they've recorded a new song with him.

"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 [Whitechapel and Shadow Of Intent]," said the band in a statement. "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!⁣"

Catch As I Lay Dying with Pierce behind the kit starting tonight in Las Vegas. The band's live lineup also includes Miss May I bassist and vocalist Ryan Neff and current Unearth guitarist Ken Susi.
