Dave McClain checked in from the band's website.

Hey Ya'll!!

Happy New Year to everybody!! Looking forward to getting back on the road and unleashing the new album on everyone! Everything is finally coming together. Artwork and CD booklet getting finalized, mastering is complete and preparations for the Lamb Of God tour are underway!!

I started practicing today by myself and getting in "show shape". I practice a lot on my own but today I started playing like I would if we were doing a show, just basically hitting a lot harder and running through a lot of songs back to back. A good day of practicing, I already feel like I'm in "mid tour" form. So, about three songs into playing, I feel some blisters start to form. I was going to put some tape around them just to keep them from popping and ripping open but I kept playing on and two songs later I actually got to see two chunks fly off my hand!!! Yes!! I hardly ever get to see them fly off. My lucky day I guess!

Anyway, back to the tour.

I've never seen Gojira before but heard some of the their stuff and heard that they're a killer live band.

Of course we already know the Trivium guys really well and have crossed paths a few times. Hmmmm, I see booze in our future!!

I can safely say that Lamb Of God are one of my favorite metal bands. Killer riffs, great musicians and after doing some shows with them and coming out to a few on our own and hanging out with them, I can also say that they're cool people as well. Really looking forward to watching Chris play every night. I see more booze in our future!

That's about it. See ya on the road!!


Dave

They should swap Trivium for another band and this would be one hell of a tour. If they were coming to Chicago I'd go anyway, although I'd rather see MH headline this.
