Brad Parris Leaves Nile
Nile has announced that bassist/vocalist Brad Parris is parting ways with the group. The death metal band shared the news via social media, stating that the split is amicable.
”It’s time for us to share with our fans and the metal community that Brad Parris is leaving Nile this year,” they write. “This is something that we have known about and have been working together with Brad through the transition. Brad has been an exemplary band member of Nile since 2015, conducting himself at all times with professionalism and integrity. He is parting under the absolute best of terms to focus on other projects and family concerns. Our friendship and brotherhood remain as strong as ever, and we wish him only the best as he continues his musical journey in life.”
Parris toured extensively with the band and is featured on their 2019 album Vile Nilotic Rites. A replacement bassist has not been named. A note in their post about the situation mentioned accepting auditions via email but has since been removed.
“Nile’s touring and recording commitments remain in effect,” they add. “It is natural for a band that’s been going strong for 25+ years to have changes and we promise our fans to stay as true and brutal as ever!”
Nile is scheduled to tour Europe throughout November in support of Vile Nilotic Rites. We’ll keep you updated with details as they become available.
