In a shocking announcement, Lamb if God have announced that drummer Chris Adler is no longer in the band. Adler has been offstage for around a year due to a motorcycle accident he was in about two years ago. Art Cruz (Winds of Plague, Prong) is now the full time drummer for the band. Art has been filling in for Lamb of God in Adler’s absence
The band’s full announcement reads as follows:
“Dear Lamb of God fans,
We returned last week from a great European festival run and our final tour with Slayer in North America. We are excited to keep the momentum going and dive into the next record.
We’d like to officially welcome Art Cruz, who has been playing drums with us on tour for the last year, as the new drummer of Lamb of God. Art will be joining us in the studio as we begin pre-production and recording of a new album.
We’re very proud of everything this band has accomplished over the last two decades. We would like to thank Chris Adler for his contributions over the years and wish him the best in his future endeavors.
John, Mark, Randy & Willie”
