LAMB OF GOD Tease Fans With New Album "Coming Soon" News
May 4, 2015, 4 years ago
Lamb Of God have just teased fans with an email stating that "Lamb Of God VII" is "coming soon." Check out the "black" landing page here. The band's anxiously awaited new studio album follows 2012's Resolution, which debuted on the Canadian Soundscan charts at #2 and the US Billboard charts at #3.
Lamb Of God's newly launched Instagram page has visual proof that the band has definitely started work on their next studio album.
In 2010, a 19-year-old super-fan rushed the stage during a Lamb of God concert in Prague. To protect himself, singer Randy Blythe pushed the fan away. Unbeknownst to Blythe, the young man hit his head on the floor when he fell and later died from the injury. Blythe was promptly incarcerated on charges carrying a prison term of five to ten years.
Thirty-seven days later, he was released on bail to await trial. Although legal experts told him not to return to the Czech Republic to face the charges, Blythe explained that he “could not run away from this problem while the grieving family of a dead young man searched hopelessly for answers that [he] might help provide.”
After a five-day trial, he was acquitted on March 5th, 2013.
In Dark Days, Blythe tells the story of his incarceration and the wild life that led up to it. As he explains, “Most substance abuse books end with the author getting sober. My book starts there.”
Dark Days will be released on July 14th via Da Capo Press. Random House will release the book in the UK and associated territories.
Randy Blythe has announced his upcoming photography exhibition, D Randall Blythe: Show Me What You’re Made Of, taking place from May 2nd – June 30th at Sacred Gallery NYC. The opening reception will take place on May 2nd from 8-11pm.
