Heres what he had to say:

““…In the next year, I’m going to be working on a new book once this tour cycle is over, and it is going to involve a lot of travel. I don’t know how much politics will be involved with it because it’s probably going to be more ecologically centered – not strictly political, if you know what I mean. It’s going to involve a lot of surfing, I know that.

It’s kind of tied together to me because the ocean is basically the source of life for us on the planet, and if we screw it all up, then everything is going to die. I think there is a lot of shortsightedness about that. And before I went to Standing Rock, my concerns for water quality, that’s evident to me constantly as someone who surfs.

I’ve seen varying water quality in different places around the world. It’s something that’s really concerning to me. So there will definitely be an ecological aspect to the book, but sometimes that also involves politics, too. Depending on the policies of wherever you are, whatever country it may be.”

Head to Rolling Stone to read the whole interview in which Blythe also discussed the upcoming Slayer, Lamb Of God, and Behemoth tour, and the current political climate in the U.S.

Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Discusses His Trip To Standing Rock In New Rolling Stone Article

Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God) recently went to North Dakota to help protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is a serious threat to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation’s water supply. Upon returning, Blythe wrote a lengthy article about the experience for Rolling Stone. Head HERE to check that out.

Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Is Heading To North Dakota To Protest The Dakota Access Pipeline

Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God) has revealed that is heading to North Dakota to help protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is a serious threat to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation’s water supply. You can read what Blythe had to say about that in his below Instagram post:

I am a surfer, and a true son of the South Eastern Coast of the United States. This means I spend a lot of time in the relatively warm waters of Virginia & North Carolina; in fact I spend as much time in those waters as possible given my job as a touring musician- whenever I can I ride waves, I fish, & I swim in the ocean. I have not been able to surf for a few months now because of touring with 2 different bands, & I am dying to go catch a wave. So now when I am finally off tour, why am I going far inland to freezing North Dakota (of all places), where people are getting tear gassed & arrested, instead of to the much warmer beach to chill? I am going because as a surfer, I know that all of our planet's water is connected, and that you cannot poison a river without it eventually leading to the sea. I am going because there are people trying to stop a river from being poisoned, & they need firewood, coffee, wool blankets, winter sleeping bags, & strong hands that know how to swing an ax- I have those things, so I am driving them there. I am going & bringing my Ojibwe bro David so that he can hoist his tribal flag & represent his people, & I can represent the South Eastern punk rock wave riders. I am going because I have been planning this for weeks, my heart tells me it is the right thing to do, & my spirit is restless & will not sit still inside of me until I do something besides talk about how horrible it is we are destroying our planet. So people of Standing Rock, @rollingcloud1 & I are on our way from Minnesota- we come in peace, but make no mistake- we are coming in full effect, & we are coming to stand with you. #nodapl #waterislife #hokahey
