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."

In Flames will replace Lamb Of God at The Heavy MTL / Heavy TO. I think Gojira and Dethklok will still be there even if the tour is cancel.

I wish they would have just dropped LoG from the schedule. I would have gone to see Dethklok and Gojira alone.

Gojira should just say fvck it;do a run of headling smaller club dates here in the US! Anyone who thinks this tour could play the small arenas with just Gojira and Dethklok are fooling themselves. The sight of 2500 hundred people in an arena that holds 8000-10,000 would look pretty empty,huh?

LOG puts on a great show, but Dethklok and Gojira would still be a phenomenal line up. Agreed that neither band is nearly as well known as LOG and the arena/amphitheater route would likely not fly, but Gojira playing a US club circuit would be a sick, once in a lifetime opportunity! BTW, how can anyone afford to attend the Mayhem Cruise? I guess with the end of the world and all no one cares. Oh yeah, also wishing pain and suffering for TK.....
