LAMB OF GOD have reportedly selected the track "Redneck" as the first single from their upcoming album, "Sacrament". Plans exist for the band to film a video for the song with director Bill Fishman (EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, GOOD CHARLOTTE).

LAMB OF GOD began recording "Sacrament" on April 3 in New York with producer Machine (BLOODSIMPLE, WHITE ZOMBIE), who also helmed the group's 2004 effort, "Ashes of the Wake".

In a recent interview with MTV.com, LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton had the following to say about the upcoming CD, "The music's influenced by what the five of us are listening to, what we're writing about, the context in which we're writing, our lives and our experiences," he explained. "We made a deliberate effort not to be so politically motivated this time. We still care about and think about those things, but at this point, creatively, we wanted to step out of that for a moment, and address some other things. So the lyrics are more introspective and more personal, and I think just about anybody will relate to them. Not everybody pays attention to the war or politics."

"Sacrament" is scheduled for an August 22 release through Epic Records.

As previously reported, Mark Morton and LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler will be joining Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen, the directors behind the critically acclaimed Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" documentary that focuses on the history of heavy metal music, to sign copies of the "Headbanger's Journey" DVD at F.Y.E in New York City (1290 Avenue of the Americas) on Tuesday, May 23 at 12:00 p.m.

I hear LOG are planning a tour with Christina Aguilera once their CHART SINGLE (lol) gets recognition. Tickets will be FREE as LOG aren't in it for the money (lol, right).

<;3 MTV, it's so anti-money, isn't it?

I have to say I am looking forward to this album so much, it is only overshadowed by my anticipation for Slayer's.

Can't wait.

"For Your Malice" was just playing on my Winamp (random out of 4,000 songs to boot)not 10 minutes ago.

Anyone with the angle that the band is too accessible is missing the point. This is quick fix metal.

Pure instant gratification.
