Lamb Of God Tour With Dethklok Cancelled

Lamb of God announced that upcoming co-headline tour with Dethklok and Gojira, scheduled to begin August 1st, in Seattle has been cancelled. The cause is the uncertainty surrounding the release of frontman Randy Blythe, who is still in the Czech Republic following his arrest on manslaughter charges for his alleged involvement with a fans death in 2010. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

The band's issued a statement: "Lamb of God wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no Lamb of God."

Adult Swim also commented: "In light of circumstances beyond our control, the upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour has been canceled. Refunds will be available to customers who already purchased tickets through their point of purchase. We thank Dethklok fans for their continued support and look forward to releasing information about the band's upcoming third album and a planned fall tour in the coming weeks."

The three-time Grammy Award-nominated band from Richmond, VA and the world’s most brutal animated death band from Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse animated series will shred their way through cities throughout in the U.S. and Canada ending September 15 in San Francisco, CA.

The upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour marks the return of Lamb of God to North American stages where they will support latest album "Resolution," which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart when it was released earlier this year.

As in tours past, Brendon Small, the co-creator and composer behind Dethklok, will bring the animated band to life on stage each night alongside an all-star band including the legendary Gene Hoglan, Bryan Beller and Mike Keneally. Building on the success of "Dethklok: The Dethalbum" and "Dethklok: The Dethalbum II" from Williams Street Records, Small is currently in the studio working on the band’s third album release scheduled for later this year. Additionally, new episodes from the fourth season of Metalocalypse currently air on Adult Swim Sundays at 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT). More...

Roadrunner Bands Talk Supportive Moms

This Sunday is Mother's Day, and Roadrunner Records though it would be nice to let some of the label artists represent for their moms, who supported their kids' musical ambitions early on. Roadrunner asked two simple questions - "Does your mom like/support your band?" and "What's your mom's favorite song by your band?"

Max Cavalera, Sepultura/Nailbomb/Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy: "Yes, my mom was our first big supporter. She let everybody camp in our house. Our house was always full of metal kids. Her favorite song is 'Innerself' [from Sepultura's Beneath the Remains]. I think she likes the lyrics, because it was about when I was living in Brazil and she remembers that period of our life."

Tyler Connolly, Theory of a Deadman: "My mother is a big supporter of our band, of course, and always wants to make sure we wear our seat belts on our tour bus. I don't think she has a favorite song, but always wonders where I got my terrible potty mouth from. We usually roll through her home town once a year and she's the best at wrangling sluts for me. I love my mom."

Phil Demmel, Machine Head: "My mom, being a musician, was supportive of my interest in music from the word go. Her and my father cultivated my 'hobby' doing everything from matching me dollar for dollar on my first guitar, videotaping my earliest gigs at the seediest Bay Area bars/clubs, to standing on stage with me in front of 60,000 people in her native Portugal when we opened for Metallica. She loves our acoustic material. Our songs 'Descend the Shades of NIght' and 'Darkness Within' are favorites." More...

Gojira Reveals New Album Details

Gojira has announced "L'Enfant Sauvage" as the title of the band's Roadrunner Records debut and fifth studio album. The title translates to "The Wild Child," features 11 tracks, and will be released June 25th in store and digitally. Recorded at Spin Studios in New York, the album is produced by Josh Wilbur (Lamb Of God).

"When you become a musician, you don't have a boss telling you what to do so you have to be very responsible," singer/guitarist/songwriter Joe Duplantier says, shedding a little light on the title and its meaning. "With freedom comes responsibility so I'm asking myself, 'What is freedom? What does it mean to me?' L'Enfant Sauvage reflects on that. There's no answer though. There's just life and questions."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Explosia
2. L’Enfant Sauvage
3. The Axe
4. Liquid Fire
5. The Wild Healer
6. Planned Obsolescence
7. Mouth Of Kala

Gojira Drummer Comments On Upcoming Album

In a recent discussion with Alternative Music Hub Gojira drummer Mario Duplantier had the following to say about the band's forthcoming new studio album.

"We have a title but we can’t reveal it yet. The title will be surprising. We need to decide on the songs. At the moment we have 14 or 15 songs recorded but personally I would love to have all the songs on the album. I think we are keeping two songs as bonus tracks or something special. The album is simpler; there is more space and atmosphere which makes it massive. I think we created something big, catchy, kept the violence but we are more subtle this time."

The album is currently planned for a late 2012 release through the band's new label home Roadrunner Records.
