New The Word Alive Drummer
2012-03-23 by Ryan Kroner | 46 Comments

After the recent loss of their keyboardist and their original drummer, Dustin Salinas, The Word Alive have recruited Luke Holland to fill his spot. However, this announcement only comes after the studio sessions for their upcoming album, Life Cycles, for which they had Arizona native Matt Horn on drums.

Luke Holland is a technical beast. He should be a welcome addition. I'll be on the lookout for these guys!

His videos are pretty solid. The one he did for The Word Alive is pretty sick. A little too show off-ey with the stick flips though.

Don't judge this kid guys, he's a monster. He was endorsed by several companies before he was even in a band, and his first endorsement was when he was like 15 or 16.

I don't care, Luke Holland fucking rocks harder than any drummer on YouTube, and he deserves this x300.

Lol yeah i thought he looked young. I mean I do too but good to know he actually is young. Agreed he is too good for this band. He dropped some one handed double strokes in that vid. Pretty sweet.

There's nothing worse than playing stuff that's too easy and has no passion

After watching some of his videos I have to agree that he deserves better than this band. To be able to play some of the shit he does, and make it look so easy... it's impressive to say the least. The kid has a ridiculous amount of potential. He should be in a band that actually lets him push himself.

Kid's a good drummer for sure but I think he did about 26 stick-flips and those always seem pretty douchey.
