Lamb Of God are streaming their February 14, 2020 show at the House Of Vans in Chicago, IL in full on YouTube. You can check that out below
In 2012, Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe was arrested in the Czech Republic and charged with manslaughter after a fan died from head injuries he sustained at one of the band’s shows. Blythe was ultimately acquitted, but he said he would never return to the country out of respect for the victim’s family. However, during a recent Reddit AMA, the frontman said he would be willing to play another show in the Czech Republic if it was okay with the man’s family
Blythe said the following:
“I would love to play in the Czech Republic again — I have nothing against the Czech people, and I was not mistreated there. Eventually I think we might play there again, but it will 100 percent have to be with the cooperation of the family of the young man who died, and I would want to give the money from the show to a charity they choose.
If we played there, it would be a huge news story, and I do not wish to cause the young man’s family anymore pain — they did no wrong, and were not cruel to me at all; in fact they showed me great kindness. But they have suffered enough, so it is out of respect to them we have not returned. I hope the Czech fans understand.”
Lamb Of God recently got together remotely to perform a three-song set from quarantine. The session, which featured “Checkmate,” “New Colossal Hate,” and “Laid To Rest,“ can be seen below. In other news guitarist Willie Adler will also be taking part in a live Q&A on Facebook at 4pm PDT/7pm EDT.
Lamb Of God have premiered a new video for their new song “Gears.“ This track is from the band’s new self-titled album, which was released today (June 19).
In other news, guitarist Mark Morton will be celebrating the record’s release with a Twitter listening party tonight (June 19) at Newbury Comics. The event will start at 4pm PDT / 7pm EDT and you can participate with the hashtag #LambOfGodXNewbury. Morton said the following:
“The day has finally arrived! We are absolutely thrilled to be releasing our new, self-titled album today. We’re all so proud of this collection of songs and feel like they rival some of our best work. As a band, we have a reawakened energy and a renewed creative spark that is evident in these songs and pulses through the entire album. Everyone involved in this project is beyond anxious for the world to hear it. We hope you enjoy it and we thank you for your support!”
Megadeth, Lamb Of God, Trivium, and In Flames will be taking part in a streaming event on June 12. The event will start at 2pm PDT / 5pm EDT on metaltouroftheyear.com and it will feature Megadeth’s 2016 show at St Vitus in Brooklyn, Lamb Of God’s 2020 show at the House Of Vans in Chicago, Trivium’s 2019 set at DreamHack Dallas, and In Flames’ 2019 set at Borgholm Brinner. Fans will also be able to check out new interviews with each band and purchase limited edition merch. A portion of the proceeds will go towards Live Nation’s Crew Nation.
Lamb Of God have premiered a new song titled “Routes.” This track features Chuck Billy (Testament) and it will appear on the band’s new self-titled album, which is set to be released on June 19.
“Routes” was inspired by Randy Blythe’s time with the Native Americans at the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota during the Dakota Access Pipeline protest. The frontman said the following about that:
“I went to Standing Rock because I had heard reports of violence committed on the peaceful protestors there by both state law enforcement and private security contractors, and this violence was not reported in mainstream media for the most part. I went to bring supplies and support these people, who were trying to protect their water, and thereby protect everyone, as everything in the natural world is protected. I was there a week, made some great friends, and learned a lot. It was a very profound experience in my life, and I knew one day I would write a song about it.”
He also said the following about recruiting Billy, who is of Pomo Native American heritage:
“My experience, although my own, was tempered and shaped by the hundreds of years of brutal oppression of Native peoples in our country. So, it was imperative for me to have a Native voice represented on the song, and Chuck Billy was happy to be that voice. At the end, there is a call and response section — Chuck calls and I respond. This is intentional. Musically, it is symbolic of my experience there. A native voice leads, bringing forth positive energy and calling to the people to unite, and I reply, providing support. That was my physical experience, and it is reflected in the song.”
“It was a great honor as a proud Pomo Native American to be asked by Lamb Of God to do some guest vocals on this song. The #NoDAPL movement by the indigenous people of this country was a historic event. Being able to lend my voice to represent the Native American people, complementing Randy’s storytelling and lyrics, is something really special to me. I’m glad this movement was put in a musical message, and I am extremely happy to have been a part of it.”
Lamb Of God, Kreator, and Power Trip have offered an update on their postponed European/UK tour. The bands said the trek will be rescheduled in 2021.
The following statement was issued:
“Lamb of God, Kreator and Power Trip have been working with agents and promoters to reschedule the State of Unrest Tour, previously scheduled for March/April 2020 in Europe and the UK. In the face of an uncertain immediate future, the most realistic option for rescheduling the tour will be in 2021.
Our plan is to share an updated routing for the tour as soon as possible. Please hold on to your tickets for previous dates as they will be valid for the rescheduled shows in 2021. You can also contact your point of purchase for more info on rescheduled dates or refunds.
We wish everyone health, safety and happiness and we very much look forward to returning to the stage in Europe next year.
