Long standing guitarist / vocalist, Dallas Toler-Wade, has parted company with Nile, ahead of their North American tour with Overkill.
A wish to “focus on his own plans and recordings” has been given as the reason for Toler-Wade’s departure after 20 years with Nile. In his place comes Brian Kingsland from technical BM crew Enthean.
Nile founder and frontman Karl Sanders commented: “I would like to personally thank Dallas Toler-Wade for his many years with the band, and sincerely wish him well with his music. All of us in Nile are truly happy and thankful to be working with Brian. Not only is he a seriously talented extreme metal guitar shredder, but he has a great brutal metal voice, with a very versatile range.Brian is also a genuine, down-to-earth hard-working and motivated guy who has helped reignite and re-establish a sense of team work back into Nile. With the addition of Brian on guitar and vocals, the band right now seems to me a lot more like the early years of Nile – the classic Nile era when we were all functioning as a cohesive unit, in viciously brutal triple vocal attack mode.”
Nile’s North American tour with Overkill kicks off today, February 14.
