LAMB OF GOD Preparing For May/June Dates

With the exoneration of front man Randy Blythe from all charges in the Czech Republic, LAMB OF GOD announced a tour of secondary markets May 16 through June 20. The tour continues in support of the album Resolution. Support on all dates will be Decapitated with Terror appearing through June 10 and The Acacia Strain appearing on the remaining shows.

The band will also be hosting the Metal on the Mountain retreat July 15 through 19 at Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, New York. The weeklong event, which is limited to 170 fans, will feature activities aimed at musicians and non musicians alike. The curriculum, created by the band, will include guitar and drum clinics with Mark Morton, Willie Adler, and Chris Adler as well as group instruction, songwriting sessions and competitions, nightly jam sessions with the band and fans, band Q & A, the premiere of the LAMB OF GOD feature film scheduled for a fall theatrical release, and a full band concert the final night of the retreat.

Long time band album designer Ken Adams will discuss the creation of LAMB OF GOD album and t-shirt designs and band tour manager and sound man Brian Griffin will instruct fans on the art of mixing a live metal show. Non-musical activities will include motorcycle excursions with bassist John Campbell, a seminar on primitive fire building by Randy Blythe, and a casino night. Also, all of the fans will enjoy all of the amenities available at the Full Moon Resort. For more information on the Metal on the Mountain retreat, go to metalonthemountain.com.

CHRIS ADLER Takes The Modern Drummer Cover

After facing a trying year, modern metal’s greatest band, LAMB OF GOD, is being honored by one of our generation’s greatest music publications. Arriving just a few short weeks after the band’s fourth Grammy nomination, February 1 will mark the release of Modern Drummer Magazine’s March 2013 issue—featuring none other than LAMB OF GOD drummer CHRIS ADLER on the front cover. This is Chris’ second cover appearance with Modern Drummer Magazine.

moderndrummercover

In the exclusive Modern Drummer Magazine interview, CHRIS ADLER takes readers through his recent experiences and explains how mental toughness has kept him positive in his professional and personal life. Check your local magazine stand or bookstore for a copy!

CHRIS ADLER is heading out to Prague within the coming days to support his band mate and brother in music, Randy Blythe, during his trial. When he returns, Chris will announce his involvement in an upcoming drumming project. He will also put the finishing touches on his third book, The Making of Ashes of the Wake, coming soon.

In other news, CHRIS ADLER recently announced his exclusive North American endorsement and distribution deal with VRUK Corporation, specifically in conjunction with the CHRIS ADLER Signature VRUK DrumMaster Heel Plate—a vital tool for drummers looking to increase endurance and speed that CHRIS ADLER himself is distributing exclusively throughout North America.

LAMB OF GOD Manager Responds To Blythe Indictment

As news breaks of Randy Blythe’s indictment on manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic, manager Larry Mazer responds with the following statement:

“After a three month investigation, the prosecutor in the Czech Republic has decided to move forward with an indictment of Randy Blythe on the charge of manslaughter with intent to cause bodily harm. Obviously, we intend to fight vigorously against these charges as we feel that in no way did Randy intend to cause bodily harm on the young fan who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the show.  As he has stated previously, Randy intends to go to Prague to defend himself at trial.

While it is a tragedy that a Lamb of God fan died following a performance by the group, in no way do I feel that Randy did anything improper that led to the young man’s injuries and subsequent death.  The price of a ticket to a show does not entitle audience members access to a band’s stage.  In the years since the murder on stage of Dimebag Darrell Abbott, performers of all genres have had to become more guarded while performing in response to the dangers presented by fans trying to become part of the performance.  We believe that Randy responded professionally to the numerous amount of fans rushing the stage that day, a number of them captured on videos that have been posted on the internet. We have testimony from the venue operator that acknowledges lax security and an improper barricade being used that evening. Numerous testimonies from fans also were contradictory as to the actions of the multiple fans that tried to access the stage.

At this point, all that the band, myself, and our lawyers can do is to present a defense and try to convince the panel of judges who will hear the case that Randy is innocent of all charges and that his name and reputation need to be cleared and that he be permitted to carry on with his life and career always mindful that a fan passed away after a Lamb of God performance.
