LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler has commented on the band's upcoming U.S. "Uholy Alliance Tour" with SLAYER, MASTODON, CHILDREN OF BODOM and THINE EYES BLEED.
LAMB OF GOD are currently at home in Richmond, Virginia recording their sophomore Epic CD with producer Machine (CLUTCH, KING CRIMSON) for an August release.
Commented Adler: "Since we took the time off to write our new record, several well known tour opportunities and offers did hit the table — many discussions occurred late last year, but at the time we were uncomfortable committing to the projected lineups. It's a tough line to walk weighing opportunity vs. what you consider the intention and integrity of the project. You have to know yourself and respect your audience or you will lose step very quickly. We are heavy metal band — we're not interested in trying to sell a record to everyone. We write 'ugly' music for 'ugly' people and we have no intentions of lightening things up for more appeal. If you know of us and don't like us now, you never will and we aren't missing you.
"When discussions began with SLAYER about a U.S. run together, we knew this needed to happen. We've done shows together in the U.K. and let me tell you, it is one of the most intense and brutal nights of music I have ever witnessed both on and off the stage. This will not be a normal heavy metal tour, this is roaming devastation. As a lifelong fan of heavy music, this is the show that I would want to see — this is the show that the fans deserve — this is the show that will raise the bar and this is the show that will not be forgotten."
LAMB OF GOD may introduce new material from their forthcoming album on the "Unholy Alliance Tour"
