Mark Morton commented:

“This year, Lamb Of God will celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release of our third studio album, ‘Ashes Of The Wake.’ As I recall that moment in time, it was a pivotal point for our band. We were transitioning from the relative comfort of an underground scene that we felt confident and natural in, to a much higher profile with higher stakes and more critical eyes upon us.

It was our first release on a major label and our first to be aggressively marketed through mainstream channels. I remember feeling a mixture of pressure and confidence, along with a pervasive uncertainly as to whether our brand of bottled insanity would translate to a larger audience. Ultimately, I think our biggest strength in that situation was that we never let pressure, expectation or the potential for failure effect our creative process.

We stepped up our collective focus and concentration to rise to the occasion, but we stuck together and stayed true to our identity, artistically and otherwise. That tunnel vision approach to our creative process is part of our DNA as a band. I believe it’s a large part of what keeps us honest and motivated to this day.

For ‘Ashes Of The Wake‘ to be remembered and celebrated 15 years later is a true honor. I think I can speak for all of us when I say that it is incredibly special to know that these songs have touched people’s lives in a positive way and that they are still relevant so many years later. Thanks to all of our fans for an incredible ride so far… and cheers to the years to come!”

Sacred Reich & Iron Reagan To Release New Split 7″

Sacred Reich and Iron Reagan have announced that they will be releasing a new split 7″ on April 19. The effort is limited to 1000 copies and it will come with Sacred Reich‘s new song “Don’t Do It Donnie” and Iron Reagan‘s exclusive track “They Scream.” Sacred Reich‘s Phil Rind commented:

“We are stoked to do a split with Iron Reagan. When we began as a band in 1986 we were influenced lyrically by punk bands and the Reagan era. This is a great way to get back to our roots. The song is a heavy and cheeky middle finger to the politics of today. You’d think we’d have learned by now. There is a reason our first record is called ‘Ignorance‘.”
