Lamb of God will be released May 8 on Epic Records. It will be the band’s first album in five years, and their first to feature new drummer Art Cruz (ex-Winds of Plague). In a press release, the group calls Lamb of God “A true collaboration between all members of the band” and “an amalgam of each individual’s writing style, perfectly blended to create a singular style.”
Lamb of God will embark upon a tour of Europe with Kreator and Power Trip starting in March. They’ll also be appearing at the Welcome to Rockville festival in Daytona, FL on May 9.
