Lamb of God

Lamb Of God are undoubtedly one of the most consistent bands in metal, with each album being an evolution for the band. They’ve never released a bad album, and Resolution, which is a little over a year old, was one of the best records of 2012. But with the recent legal troubles of frontman Randy Blythe over an incident in which a fan passed away due to injuries sustained at a show, the future of the band looked uncertain. Luckily, Randy was found not guilty and acquitted of all charges against him. So what does the band do to celebrate? Pick up where they left off by scheduling 30 new tour dates! The support will be Decapitated and Terror OR just The Acacia Strain depending on which date ends up closest to your hometown, so it’s a pretty good lineup. Also, they have announced something really cool for their fans called the Metal On The Mountain Retreat, which is like a getaway of sorts where the band and fans can interact with all kinds of activities and so forth. You can read the full statement from the band below, and look for a date near you!

With the recent exoneration of front man Randy Blythe from all charges in the Czech Republic, LAMB OF GOD announces today a tour of secondary markets May 16th through June 20th. The tour continues the support of the album Resolution and hits 30 markets not yet visited on the current album cycle. Support on all dates will be Decapitated with Terror appearing through June 10th and The Acacia Strain appearing on the remaining shows.

In addition, the band announces today the Metal on the Mountain retreat July 15th through 19th to be held at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York. The weeklong retreat, which is limited to 170 fans, will feature activities aimed at musicians and non musicians alike. The curriculum, created by the band, will include guitar and drum clinics with Mark Morton, Willie Adler, and Chris Adler as well as group instruction, songwriting sessions and competitions, nightly jam sessions with the band and fans, band Q & A, the premiere of the LAMB OF GOD feature film scheduled for a fall theatrical release, and a full band concert the final night of the retreat. Long time band album designer Ken Adams will discuss the creation of LAMB OF GOD album and t-shirt designs and band tour manager and sound man Brian Griffin will instruct fans on the art of mixing a live metal show. Non-musical activities will include motorcycle excursions with bassist John Campbell, a seminar on primitive fire building by Randy Blythe, and a casino night. Also, all of the fans will enjoy all of the amenities available at the Full Moon Resort. For more information on the Metal on the Mountain retreat, go to
