It has been revealed that Lamb Of God’s drummer extrordinaire Chris Adler will be laying down drums for techy mentanlists Protest The Hero’s new record.
Vocalist Rody Walker explained the situation: ‘[Moe Carlson, PTH drummer who has now left the band] approached me one day — he approached everyone individually — and said, ‘Just to let you know, I’m going back to school,’ and I was like, ‘Good for you. That’s awesome’. And then he said he didn’t have any intentions of touring ever again. That kind of sucked. It was a shock, obviously, but he’s been really good about the whole thing.
When our gruelling studio schedule just wouldn’t work with [Moe’s] gruelling school schedule, we realized we would need to find a session player for the new album. With Moe’s guidance and approval, we found us a nice match in Chris Adler! Having known Chris for a few years, and with he and Moe being drum buddies, it seemed like a perfect fit. We are happy to say that Chris has already come and gone from Canada and has left us with some beautiful drum tracks.’
The album will drop later this year.
