"I am really burned out on the touring lifestyle. It takes a special kind of person to be on the road 3/4 of the year, performing night after night. You have to live it and love it 100% or it will break you down. Unfortunately, the schedule got the best of me. I got to the point where I wasn't having fun performing anymore, and that is extremely hard to deal with."Herrick decided to quit and focus on his study. He was replaced by Richard Evensand, known as drummer in Soilwork.
"Being involved in this project really was a wake-up call for me as to what I need to be doing. Between the RR United project and the two years away from everything, my passion for music and drumming has really been reignited."In 2012 former Chimaira drummer Andols Herrick guested on one track on United Arab Emirates-based metallers Benevolent's debut album.
