LAMB OF GOD have officially confirmed the exit of founding drummer Chris Adler, who has been absent from their live shows for the past year. Current touring drummer Art Cruz has now joined the band as a full-time member.
Lamb Of God have issued the following statement:
“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.”
