We got this news a little while ago which lines out the recent developments in the band Nile. Read on.
The Press Release:
Tour With OVERKILL Kicks-Off February 14th! NILE will be embarking on their next tour in support of their latest release What Should Not Be Unearthed on Feb 14, 2017. The tour will be with the legendary OVERKILL and will visit 24 cities across America. The band and would also like to announce that Dallas Toler-Wade has decided to leave the band to focus on his own plans and recordings.
This tour also marks the debut of Nile’s newest member, guitarist / vocalist BRIAN KINGSLAND. After this tour the band will is tentatively scheduled to return to Europe this Summer for a series of METAL Festivals followed by a WSNBU-Latin America tour. NILE is already working on songs for their next album which will be recorded in late 2017 for an early 2018 release. More info will be released in the coming months.
NILE founding member KARL SANDERS comments:
“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. The mood in the Nile rehearsal room for the last 3 months has been focused and relaxed; with 4 positive, energized, hard working people all on the same Metal page. We simply can’t wait to share what we have been working on with Metal Fans on the upcoming Overkill Tour. Between the addition of Brian, and Bassist / Vocalist Brad Parris now in his 2^nd year in the band , this line-up is going to crush skulls. Seriously, the last time I felt this strongly about a Nile Line-up – was when George Kollias joined the band.”
Drummer George Kollias comments:
“I want to thank Dallas for everything he did for Nile all these years, it’s been some amazing years and I wish him the best with his new project! Also, I want to say a big “welcome to Nile” to Brian Kingsland! Brian is an amazing guitar player/vocalist and he has brought a very fresh vibe to the band, we are so looking forward to get out there and deliver the best metal you ever heard from us! Seeyou all on the road!!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Wow, I had to say that I never expected this news report and it sure is a shocking development to me. I’ve been watching Nile progress as a Metal band since I began doing this website so it’s going to be pretty different for me seeing someone else up there instead of Dallas. My first go round was with “Annihilation Of The Wicked” and while I cannot consider myself a “super fan” I’ll for certain hit the shows and review the music and do contests if the venues I am working with ask me to. They say in life that the only constant is change so I am really interested in hearing what kind of music DTW comes up with in his new solo project. What do you readers think of this development? Let me know in the comments section below. Also if you need a reminder about the dates with Overkill, that whole itinerary was discussed on THIS LINK.
