New Avenged Sevenfold Drummer Named: Arin Ilejay Indulged by Brian Willett | Published on January 20, 2011 New Avenged Sevenfold Drummer Named: Arin Ilejay After the untimely passing of original Avenged Sevenfold drummer Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater stepped into the massive void. However, Portnoy’s stint with the band was not a permanent one, and Avenged Sevenfold has been eagerly searching for a new drummer. It seems the search has come to an end, as the band announced Arin Ilejay would be the new Avenged Sevenfold drummer. “We’ve rehearsed with Arin and have been impressed with his technical skills, attitude and work ethic,” explained Avenged Sevenfold in a statement. “We’re very excited to tour with Arin and hope all of you will give him the warm welcome to the family we have.” According to Avenged Sevenfold, they were looking for someone who had a style similar to Jimmy’s. Although The Rev can never be replaced, the band felt that Ilejay would come closest to continuing Jimmy’s legacy. “We recently asked several friends who knew Jimmy and his style, and also knew our music and each of our personalities to suggest drummers to tour with us starting this year,” Avenged Sevenfold explained. “Our long time studio drum tech, Mike Fasano, recommended Arin Ilejay.” Avenged Sevenfold will be giving Ilejay a trial by fire on the Nightmare After Christmas tour, which kicks off January 20; find full Avenged Sevenfold tour dates below and pick up Avenged Sevenfold tickets right here.
