LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler checks in with the following update:
"Hey all! Things have been going really well on this trip for us. The band is playing well and much of the hard work we have put in is being rewarded with great slots on the festivals we are doing and huge side shows in between. I feel very lucky to be a part of where we are right now and am enjoying it quite a bit.
I've now heard the PROTEST THE HERO record and it's fantastic! I love listening to it and hope you all do as well. I've been asked many times on this tour that since I played drums on the record if I will be touring with them or would consider playing on other projects. I'm fairly sure my schedule won't allow for me to properly join their band and tour. As much as I love the music, I love being with my family too! LOL. We shall see as it's not even something we have discussed.
As for other projects, it's hard to answer that. I was a fan of PTH and jumped at the chance to step out of my box a little bit, push myself and explore my capabilities. It turned into quite a daunting task, but I'm much better off for it. I think I'd have to evaluate every opportunity in the same way.
Obviously my main focus is LOG, it's still my heart and soul and I'm loving being able to get out and share it with you. We've got a few big announcements coming soon regarding tours that will end the Resolution cycle and a little surprise before the end of the year.
Stay tuned – and stay metal! "
Fresh from their top slot at the Bloodstock Festival, Lamb Of God have announced their return to the UK in 2014 for a nine-date headline tour. This will be the band's longest visit to the UK since they released Resolution in January 2012. Special guests will be revealed in due course.

Long-time friends Lamb Of God and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE have joined forces for what will undoubtedly be one of the essential "can't miss" tours of the fall of 2013. The tour launches October 22nd in Toronto and canvases much of the US and Canada. The two bands are a dominant live pairing, and will combine for 28 North American shows in total. Support for all shows except Los Angeles will be provided by thrash legends TESTAMENT, with HUNTRESS opening all shows.
Both Lamb Of God and Killswitch Engage have been wanting to hit the road together for quite some time now and are both excited to finally get the chance. They have also made sure to keep the ticket prices as low as possible so that all of their fans can come out and have a good time with them on this tour.
