Nevermore bass player and one of the founding members Jim Sheppard will soon be undergoing a minor procedure for Chron’s Disease, a condition he’s managed for over 15 years. Precluding him from performing with the band during the first part of their upcoming tour with In Flames, Sheppard is expected to rejoin the band in Spokane, WA May 18. Filling in for Sheppard will be long-time friend James McDonough (ex-Megadeth).

Nevermore, who just wrapped up a series of dates with Arch Enemy, will be performing at several European summer festivals including Rock Hard, Sweden Rock and Wacken Open Air before supporting Disturbed across Europe this fall. After their touring activity the band will be taking time off to write the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed album This Godless Endeavor.
