Joe Rickard Of In Flames Joins The Pearl Drums Artist Roster
Pearl Drums is extremely proud to welcome a stellar new member to their famed Artist Roster, drummer Joe Rickard
Joe was voted one of the Up & Coming Drummers and one of the Rising Stars of the past few years!... And was just announced being the new timekeeper for Swedish metal titans IN FLAMES!!
From February to April of 2016, In Flames recorded their newest album, “Battles” with legendary producer Howard Benson, who introduced them to one of his trusted and extremely talented studio drummers… Joe Rickard.
Joe had formerly been a member of Grammy nominated RED, toured with numerous bands such as Islander and RED, and has played drums on many successful albums for artists such as RED, Vamps, Starset, Brian “Head” Welch and In Flames’ upcoming new album “Battles”.
Performing and recording with RED gave Joe the opportunity to play some of his dream shows like The Conan OʼBrien Show and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Most importantly, it gave him a creative freedom that went far beyond being "just the drummer.”
Joe currently lives in Los Angeles and is in and out of the studio doing sessions for major producers. You might have seen him out on the road also though, playing for many different artists. Joe: “I love being able to play for so many different artists. From hip hop, singer/songwriter, pop, rock, and of course metal. It’s really keeping me on my toes going from gig to gig. Always pushing myself to get better. I love drums, it’s what I enjoy the most. I am so grateful to be doing what I love to do and working with amazing people and I am extremely honoured that Pearl is welcoming me to the Pearl family. It''s definitely an exciting time in my life and I can''t wait to get all of this started!”
