In This Moment have added 3 By Design drummer Kent Diimmel to their lineup.

He’s been brought in to replace Tom Hane, who left the band in March as he was struggling to “be truly happy creatively.”

In This Moment posted a picture of Diimmel on Facebook with the caption: “Do you think he’s pretty?”

It’s not clear if he’s been brought in for their current tour with Hellyeah or if he’s now a permanent member of the Los Angeles band.

In addition, the group have announced that they and Hellyeah have joined forces to raise funds for the ZEBRA Coalition following this month’s gay nightclub shooting in Orlando where 49 people were killed.

The non-profit organisation was set up to “foster hope, dignity and self-respect in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and all youth (LGBT+) and to provide them an opportunity to grow up in a safe, healthy and supportive environment.”

In This Moment say: “We are doing a small run of posters to be sold at our show on Thursday, June 30, at Hardrock Live in Orlando. Each poster will be autographed by all members of Hellyeah and In This Moment. All proceeds will go to the ZEBRA Coalition.”

Earlier this month, the band’s guitarist Chris Howorth revealed that his undiagnosed arthritis led to a six-year opiate addiction.
