Jordan Mancino is an American drummer who was born in Escondido, California. Mancino has played with several notable acts, as the official or as a live member, including As I Lay Dying,[1] Killswitch Engage,[5] and Wovenwar.[3] Mancino, alongside the rest of AILD, have stated that the band may consist of Christians but their music is not just for Christians.[6]


Jordan Mancino started his musical career with the band Edge of Mortality which played shows with Born Blind and Cast in Stone, one member went on to join Bleeding Through.[7] He later met his longtime friend Tim Lambesis. The duo were in several acts together including Point of Recognition.[8] The two friends left that band and then formed As I Lay Dying.[8] The two formed the band and released six albums,[9] as well as a compilation of cover songs.[10] In 2009, Mancino joined the supergroup Souls of We.[11]

When Lambesis plotted to kill his wife, Mancino, along with AILD's guitarists Phil Sgrosso and Nick Hipa and bassist Josh Gilbert formed a new band called Wovenwar with Shane Blay, Oh, Sleeper's guitarist and vocalist.[12] Mancino recently stated that there is no ill will towards Lambesis.[13] Wovenwar has released two albums, Wovenwar (2014) and Honor Is Dead (2016). In 2016, Mancino filled in for Unearth drummer Nick Pierce for a brief time.[4][14] Mancino has released several play-through videos, including "Anodyne Sea".[15] In 2017, it was reported that Lambesis resurrected AILD with all new members. It was also stated that none of the original members, including Mancino, would return to the lineup.[16][17] However in June 2018, it was confirmed the lineup of Mancino, Hipa, Sgrosso, Gilbert and Lambesis have reunited.[18]
