Chris Adler speaks out on his absence from Lamb of God tour

Posted by on September 17, 2018

Over the summer, Slayer held their second leg of their North American Farewell tour featuring Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Testament and Napalm Death. Before the trek kicked off, Lamb Of God released a lengthy statement explaining that drummer Chris Adler would not be sitting behind the kit. Adler has recently taken to his Instagram account to explain his absence, which was due to recovering from a motorcycle accident he was in earlier this year. 

Read his statement below:

“Thank you all for the overwhelming amount of well wishes in response to my current absence from the Lamb of God shows. I’m humbled to know how many and how much you care.

I had a motorcycle accident late last year that shattered my collarbone and right shoulder and also chipped bones in my hip. While surgery corrected the broken bones and I was able to play earlier this year, I experienced some issues related to the injuries that needed to be addressed with a rigorous schedule of physical and occupational therapy which, is what I have been doing regularly since July. I am making great progress in addition to playing/practicing every day. 

Playing drums is what I do and refuse to do it poorly. I will be back behind the kit ASAP. Thanks again for the love! See you soon, Chris.”

Here’s hoping that Adler has a healthy speedy recovery.
