THE AP­PAR­ENT AB­SENCE OF ADLER

Lamb of God drum­mer sits out US tour

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

He has been an im­mov­able ob­ject be­hind the Lamb of God drum kit ever since the band’s for­ma­tion in 1994, but Chris Adler has had to bow out of a batch of the US ti­tan’s tour dates. Art Cruz is step­ping in to re­place Adler on the Slayer-sup­port­ing run.

Ex­act de­tails on the rea­son be­hind Adler’s ab­sence, and when ex­actly he may re­turn, re­main sparse at present.

In a state­ment posted on Face­book, Lamb of God said: “Due to un­fore­seen cir­cum­stances, we re­gret to in­form you that Chris Adler will not be per­form­ing on our up­com­ing North Amer­i­can tour with Slayer. In his ab­sence, we would like to wel­come Art Cruz [Prong, Wings of Plague], who will be filling in at the rec­om­men­da­tion of Chris. We ex­pect to see Chris re­turn­ing in the very near fu­ture. We will see you all on the road soon.”

As planned, Cruz was be­hind the Lamb of God kit and made his de­but at their show in New Hamp­shire on 26 July. The tour, which also fea­tures Slayer, Tes­ta­ment and Na­palm Death, is set to run un­til 26 Au­gust, when the jaunt rounds up with a show in San Jose, Cal­i­for­nia.
