Well… In news that will devastate anyone who is a fan. Lamb of God has officially parted ways with Chris Adler. The man has been absent from the band since he sustained injuries in a motorcycle accident in 2018.
It appears Art Cruz who has been playing with the band on tour will be joining the band officially.
The band released this statement via social media.
‘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
We’ll let you know if Chris Adler makes a statement. But wow. I’m utterly shocked by this news.
