Lamb Of God Officially Part Ways With Chris Adler

Lamb Of God have officially parted ways with Chris Adler. Art Cruz (Winds Of Plague, etc.) will now serve as the band’s permanent drummer.

The group commented:

“Dear Lamb of God fans,

We returned last week from a great European festival run and our final tour with Slayer in North America. We are excited to keep the momentum going and dive into the next record.

We’d like to officially welcome Art Cruz, who has been playing drums with us on tour for the last year, as the new drummer of Lamb of God. Art will be joining us in the studio as we begin pre-production and recording of a new album.

We’re very proud of everything this band has accomplished over the last two decades. We would like to thank Chris Adler for his contributions over the years and wish him the best in his future endeavors.

Thank you,

John, Mark, Randy & Willie”

Fan Who Tried To Swim Back To The Venue After Getting Kicked Out Of Slayer’s Toronto Show Gets Immortalized On A Beer Can

As you may recall, a fan tried to swim back to Toronto’s Budweiser Stage after being kicked out of Slayer, Lamb Of God, Anthrax, Behemoth, and Testament’s show at the venue last year. Now, the man has apparently been immortalized on a new commemorative beer can. You can see photos of that below. The can was created to celebrate the venue’s 25th anniversary.

Black Veil Brides & Lamb Of God Singers Pay Tribute To Late Disney Channel Star Cameron Boyce

Actor Cameron Boyce has sadly passed away at the age of 20. His death was the result of a seizure that was related to an “ongoing medical condition.” Boyce was known for his roles in the Disney Channel franchise “Descendants,” the TV show “Jessie,” and Adam Sandler’s “Grown Ups” movies. He will also appear in the “American Satan” spinoff series “Paradise City,” which stars Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) and Ben Bruce (Asking Alexandria). A number of people have taken to social media to pay tribute to the actor including Biersack and Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe. You can see what they had to say below:

“Shine on, Bright Star” Hollywood, CA. 1.5.2019 It is with a heavy heart that I must bid this young man, @thecameronboyce, a peaceful journey on his trip to the great beyond. I met Cameron working in Hollywood- we did some acting together for an upcoming production. Cameron was a Disney child actor, now growing into a young man- he was just 20 years old when he died last night of natural causes due to an ongoing medical condition. Despite being famous as a child star, he was as about as down to earth as a person could get, which greatly impressed me- there was absolutely zero sense of entitlement about him. We had a lot of laughs on set, not to mention good talks on the nature & perils of fame. Cameron was incredibly talented- he could dance, sing, & was a brilliant actor with a great sense of humor & a genuine curiosity about the world- just truly a joy to watch perform. I would watch him on set doing his thing & think “Man- he’s SO GOOD.” Incidentally, his paternal grandmother, Jo Ann (Allen) Boyce, is a Civil Rights icon, one of the first 12 African-Americans to attend an integrated high school in the south, in 1956- I believe that this sort of upbringing lead to his strength of character, & philanthropic nature. Although he & I came from very different worlds- the Disney scene & the heavy metal music world are pretty much polar opposites- we got along well & I was really looking forward to seeing & working with him again. I extend my most sincere condolences to Cameron’s family & friends. The world needs more socially aware & kind hearted young men, & we certainly lost a good one last night. I took this photo on set- you can see the kindness in his eyes. Safe journey, bro- see you on the other side. #ripcameronboyce #Leica #LeicaCamera #LeicaCameraUSA #LeicaM #LeicaM10P #LeicaM10Ptyp3656 #🔴📷 #Summilux #Summilux50mm #LeicaCraft #MyLeicaJourney #MKexplore #drandallblythe #RatsEyesPhotography #HoneTheAesthetic

Chris Adler Reportedly Set To Return To The Stage This Year, But Not With Lamb Of God

It looks like Chris Adler will be returning to the stage this year, but not with Lamb Of God. The drummer will be taking part in the “Hail! Rockstar Extravaganza,” alongside vocalist Steve “Zetro” Souza (Exodus), guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head), and bassist James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth, etc.). The dates for that have yet to officially be announced, but an October 19 date at the Rock House in Moscow, Russia has leaked out. Adler has not been touring with Lamb Of God due to injuries he suffered during a 2017 motorcycle accident. During his absence, Art Cruz (Winds Of Plague, Prong) has been filling in. When asked about Adler’s potential return, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe said he had “no comment.”
