With great pride and excitement I announce the addition of Ilan Rubin to the lineup beginning next year. I had the chance to see Ilan playing his ass off at Reading and Leeds a couple summers ago and he blew me away. We recently invited him out to rehearse with us and he blew US away - the perfect guy to pick up the sticks after Josh leaves us at the end of the year.Stay tuned for some 2009 tour announcements soon.

awesome! although i'm sad to see freese go (was lucky enough to see him on this current tour), trent always knows what he's doing when it comes to picking musicians to interpret his songs. congrats to ilan and best of luck to him! he has some big shoes to fill.

I just read his wikipedia article. If all that is true, this kid has already lived like everyone on here's dream.

lessons from Travis Barker, playing Woodstock and Warped Tour, filling in for drums with NOFX, being in a band with dudes from Fenix TX, being in the lostprophets and NIN...and having a cool solo project. and he's fucking 20. what a badass.

You have to admit that his drumming does look very impressive. And his background, man, that's just unbelievable. It's shame to see Josh Freese go, but his replacement looks promising.
