Rivers of Nihil on the departure of drummer Ron Nelson:

 ”After five years as RIVERS OF NIHIL, we have come to the mutual decision to part ways with our drummer and friend, Ron Nelson. Ron is the guy who started this band back in 2009 and most of us have been playing in bands with him since we were sixteen years old. He recorded two EPs and a full-length with us, toured all over the country, farted many times in our van, and has left an enormous space to be occupied. Without Ron, we absolutely would not be the band (or people) that we are today. Ron will be sorely missed by us and we wish him the best in his future endeavors! With the departure of such a monster of a player as Ron we knew that we had to carefully select our newest member; that guy is Alan Balamut. Alan has learned our live set in record time and with frightening accuracy. We are proud to have him as part of the RIVERS OF NIHIL family and look forward to the times ahead. Catch Alan and the rest of us on tour this March and April with Broken Hope, Oceano, Fallujah, and Kublai Kahn on The Best Of Brutality Tour!”
