Rivers of Nihil announce new drummer

Pennsylvania death metalheads Rivers of Nihil have parted ways with Alan Balamut.

In Alan’s place Rivers of Nihil have brought Dylan Potts on board.

You can check out a statement from Alan, a drum play-through of “Perpetual Growth Machine” by Dylan and Rivers of Nihil tour dates here.

From Alan:

“Hey everyone. I’m sure many of you already know and some may not but I have decided to part ways with Rivers of Nihil a few months ago in good terms. The reason is simply that I need to financially situate myself (NYC isn’t easy) and my urge to finish school in Music Production. I found Dylan Potts just before my departure and I believe he fits in and performs with the band in phenomenal ways. The whole ride was an amazing and unforgettable experience and I have nothing but respect for each member, former member, our manager, all the people I’ve met and Metal Blade Records. In the meantime I’ll be doing session work and other music productions, and I’ll be more open for touring after I finish school in 2016– and if Rivers ever need any assistance, I’ll be right there for them. I wish the band all the success for next year and beyond!”
