"After nearly eight years of working together Rivers of Nihil has decided to part ways with guitarist Jonathan Topore.

"With that being said, we would like to announce that our very old friend Andy Thomas from Black Crown Initiate (and Where Owls Know My Name guest vocal/music video/tambourine fame) will be stepping in for our upcoming headlining tour with Fallujah, Alluvial, and Warforged.

"As a fellow Reading, PA area native Andy has been passively and actively involved with Rivers of Nihil since our inception and there is no other person that we trust more than him to take on this position.

"We look forward to seeing all of you on tour."
