Unearth announces new drummer

Official press release: Fans that have seen Unearth live on their recent trips to Alaska, Japan and on their U.S. and Canadian tour with Chimaira, may have noticed a new face on stage. The guy behind the kit has been none other than up-and-coming drummer, Nick Pierce. Nick Pierce is a self taught drummer who's been playing since age 10. He grew up playing for local bands in the Seattle/Tacoma area (Culling the Weak, Eterna Nocturna, Embalmed) as well as Los Angeles-based band The Faceless. Nick first sat in behind the kit for Unearth in May of 2011 during their two show trip to Alaska. Unearth discovered Pierce on YouTube where he had been covering Unearth songs, among many other bands, on a series of videos on his YouTube channel. Vocalist Trevor Phipps adds: "Nick is a beast of a drummer and a great guy to hang with. I look forward to jamming with him around the world for years to come." Guitarist Buz McGrath compliments Pierce and says he has a "Great attitude, energy and the knowledge that we can throw the most insane riffs at him and he can create and adequately perform next level beats for said riffs makes it a little easier to sleep at night." Nick Pierce shares his excitement about joining Unearth: "I've been a fan of Unearth for many years and I'm excited to shred with a great group of guys and support our fans."

They should re-release The Stings of Conscience and the Endless EP and break up.

cgrind3000 1/20/2012 10:21:21 AM

anonymous 1/20/2012 10:36:32 AM

patsforpatrick 1/20/2012 10:42:34 AM

didn't know this shit band still existed.

anonymous 1/21/2012 12:40:48 AM

Great drummer, checked his videos on you tube, very good. Too bad he is going to waste his talent on an "easy" band like Unearth. Drummers like these should be spicing up technical metalbands.

Pony 1/21/2012 5:03:00 AM

These guys havent thrown a sick riff at anyone in the better part of a decade. Drummers dont shred brah.

altheeagle 1/21/2012 8:25:10 AM

spice up your life, bro! What is this? fcking food network...

anonymous 1/23/2012 9:51:40 AM

All Shall Perish's drummer is Adam Pierce.
