Testament, Municipal Waste, Lacuna Coil, Etc. Added To Lamb Of God’s Headbangers Boat Cruise

More bands have been added to Lamb Of God’s upcoming “Headbangers Boat” cruise. That event will take place aboard the Norwegian Pearl as it sails from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas on October 31 – November 4, 2023. The updated lineup features: Lamb Of God (two sets including full performance of “Ashes Of The Wake”), Mastodon, Testament, Hatebreed, GWAR, Municipal Waste, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Lacuna Coil, Gatecreeper, Fit For An Autopsy, Vio-lence, Malevolence, Bleed From Within, Dying Wish, and Mark Morton’s solo band.

God Forbid And Bleeding Through Announce January Shows

God Forbid and Bleeding Through have announced a couple of shows together. They will be performing at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on January 6 and at the Palladium in Worcester, MA on January 7. God Forbid commented:

“When it comes to good news when it rains it pours. Despite doing an incredible reunion show at Blue Ridge Rockfest a couple months back, we knew it wouldn’t be a proper reunion without performing a show in our home area of New Jersey. Those are the fans that have been the loudest and most passionate since the beginning, so it warms our hearts to be able to give back. The Massachusetts metal scene is one of the first places to embrace what God Forbid does so it’s fitting to make an appearance in New England where the metal is in their blood. And to have the legendary Bleeding Through as a part of this makes these performances that much more special. This has been a decade in the making. Make sure you are there to witness history.”

Lamb Of God Recruit Mastodon, Hatebreed, GWAR, Etc. For First-Ever “Headbangers Boat” Cruise

Lamb Of God have revealed the details for their first-ever “Headbangers Boat” cruise. The event will take place aboard the Norwegian Pearl as it sails from Miami, FL to Nassau, Bahamas on October 31 – November 4, 2023. The following artists will perform: Lamb Of God (two sets including full performance of “Ashes Of The Wake”), Mastodon, Hatebreed, GWAR, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Fit For An Autopsy, and Mark Morton’s solo band. Jose Mangin, Riki Rachtman, and Jamey Jasta will host.

Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe commented:

“Imagine the sheer horror on the faces of all the happy families aboard, let’s say, another cruise when they look across the sea and see GWAR decapitating someone on the main deck of a big-ass boat filled with a few thousand crazed metalheads. If there’s any better reason to go on the Headbangers Boat, I can’t think of one…well, that and all our other friends we’ve played shows on land with that will be joining us. It’s gonna be a party for sure – see y’all somewhere in the Atlantic!”

Guitarist Mark Morton added:

“A thrash metal cruise vacation to the Bahamas? Hell yea! Headbangers Boat! We’re stoked about this one y’all! Join us in a celebration of the heavy metal movement that these bands and these fans have been building for the last two decades. Lots of incredible bands with some more surprises announcing soon. LFG!”

God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle commented:

“The cat is out of the bag. People have been asking relentlessly about would be playing 2nd guitar for the @godforbidofficial reunion. We’ve been keeping it under wraps but I am proud to announce our good friend @nickhipa ex-As I Lay Dying, as that guitar player. Nick is a ripping player and just great human being. This is going to be so badass. I can’t wait to jam this set in a couple months at @blueridgerockfest”

Hipa added:

“Stoked to be taking the stage with my friends in @godforbidofficial for their Blue Ridge Rock Festival performance this September! They are a talented group of great dudes with a robust catalogue of crushing riffs… I am honored and excited to be included in this special event!”

God Forbid To Release New Limited Edition Vinyl Pressing Of “Gone Forever”

God Forbid will be releasing a limited edition splatter vinyl pressing of “Gone Forever” on June 10. Fans can pre-order the record HERE.

Vocalist Byron Davis said the following about the reissue:

“I think it’s amazing that an album that changed our lives created so long ago gets a fresh new look for today’s world.”

Guitarist Doc Coyle added:

“Although ‘Gone Forever‘ has previously been released on vinyl, the original run was limited and hard-to-find. I am pleased to have God Forbid‘s breakthrough album released properly at a time when vinyl is being embraced by collectors and in conjunction with God Forbid‘s reunion show announcement. This one is for the real GF fans.”
