Unearth recruits As I Lay Dying, Wovenwar drummer for tour
As drummer Nick Pierce continues to heal from back surgery, Unearth has now lined up Jordan Mancino (Wovenwar, As I Lay Dying) for their forthcoming summer tour dates. Here's the official word:
"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." Meanwhile, 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!"
