Nuclear Blast Entertainment are delighted to announce the signing of world-renowned metal band LAMB OF GOD (ex-North America) and confirm the release of their seventh full-length album in July 2015.
Markus Staiger, Nuclear Blast owner and founder, enthuses, “What an honour to work with Lamb Of God. I’ve always been a big fan of their music and we now get to work with them on their new crushing album!”
Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler continues, “Finally joining forces with Nuclear Blast outside of North America is something Lamb of God is excited to see happen. We first met back in 1997 – almost signed then, but have been flirting ever since! It’s now time for a new chapter for us in connecting with our friends and fans overseas, which is long overdue! See you all very soon – with a nasty new album!”
After a much publicised, tumultuous couple of years, the Grammy-nominated Richmond, VA band are stronger than ever and raring to go with their seventh album, fittingly titled, “VII: Sturm und Drang”. The record is once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur, with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe, and Kyle McAulay and was recorded in California at NRG Recording Studios and Suburban Soul Studios. Instagram users should check out the series of black & white studio photos being shared on the band’s page at: instagram.com/lambofgod. The album’s cover art is by K3n Adams ( http://www.k3n.com).

The band recently launched http://www.lambofgodvii.com and so far have gradually unveiled video interviews with fans around the world, including India, Israel, USA, and Venezuela. The fifth reveal, which has been counting down to today, premieres a stream of brand new track, ‘Still Echoes’. The song will be available via all digital retailers and streaming services starting Monday, May 18th.
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe states, “The time has come to give the fans their first taste of the new Lamb of God album. This is a very, very dark, yet sonically highly varied, record. As it’s always good to come out of the gate hard with a fast and aggressive one; we chose this track ‘Still Echoes’ to kick it off. Enjoy/destroy.”
Lamb of God perform at the UK’s Download Festival on June 14th and will spend the summer touring the US with Slipknot. A photography exhibition of some of frontman Randy Blythe‘s images is at the Sacred Gallery in New York City until June 30th. In addition, you can pick up Blythe’s first, autobiographical book ‘Dark Days: A Memoir’ from July 14th, published by Random House. Lamb of God‘s seventh album “VII: Sturm und Drang” will be available worldwide in July.
