I’ve been fortunate to shoot Lamb Of God shows with both Chris Adler and Art Cruz. Both are killer drummers and add their own flair to anything they touch. Lamb Of God announced today that Art Cruz will be officially taking over the job of drummer for them. They sent well wishes to Chris for his years of music and contributions to the band. No doubt Art will do this justice. Welcome!!! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them and all the best to Chris.

Statement from Lamb Of God:

“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.

Thank you,

John, Mark, Randy & Willie”
