“The sense of connection and family that was shared on the Headbangers Boat has been overwhelming.” says Lamb of God Guitarist, Mark Morton. “We were all reminded of the power that music has to bring joy, inspiration and healing. We are beyond grateful to have had the chance to bring so many people from the heavy metal community together to share and celebrate this music we all love. And it doesn’t end here! We are thrilled to announce Headbangers Boat 2…”
Lamb of God’s Headbangers Boat 2024 will see special guests Dethklok’s first performance at sea, and their first announced show following their first tour in over a decade, the successful “The BABYKLOK Tour” with co-headliners BABYMETAL. Other live metal performance rarities offered by Lamb of God’s Headbangers Boat 2024 will include additional support acts Chimaira (who reunited this year for their first two shows in over 5 years) and Poison The Well (who in January are celebrating the 20th anniversary of their album You Come Before You with a string of shows).
Beyond the onboard experience, Headbangers will have the chance to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime day of adventure in Puerto Plata (officially known as San Felipe de Puerto Plata), the ninth largest city in the Dominican Republic and the capital of the province of Puerto Plata. Cruisers can enjoy spectacular city views atop the 2,600-foot-high Pico Isabel de Torres mountain, explore the 16th century Fortaleza San Felipe, or visit the Amber Museum, a museum filled with a unique collection of valuable Dominican amber capturing millions of years of fossils of plant and insect life. Please note: shore excursions will not be available until 4-6 weeks prior to sailing. Cruisers will be able to book an excursion upon receipt of their official booking number.
The opulent Norwegian Gem will provide everything needed to make Headbangers Boat the most electrifying cruise vacation ever, with fully stocked bars at (almost) every corner, tasty dining options, the Pool Deck (with multiple hot tubs), Gem Club Casino, Mandara Spa, Body Waves Fitness Centre, Sports Court, and much more.

ABOUT LAMB OF GOD:
Hailed as the heroes of new American Heavy Metal by legions of fans around the world, Lamb Of God grew from basement shows and grimy DIY venues to arena headliners, beloved with the same devotion as such spiritual forefathers and touring comrades as Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth. Over the course of their career, the Richmond, Virginia-based band have created an unmistakable signature sound, injecting an extreme contemporary aesthetic to shove metal into the new millennium. Lamb of God have made history with such timeless works as 2003’s As the Palaces Burn (named by Rolling Stone as one of the “Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time”), 2004’s RIAA gold certified Ashes of the Wake, 2009’s landmark Wrath, 2012’s diverse Resolution, and 2015’s explosive VII: Sturm und Drang, the latter three of which debuted in the top 5 on the overall Billboard 200. Among their many accolades, the band have received five GRAMMY® Award nominations for “Best Metal Performance” and “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance,” as well as multiple Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards including “Best Live Band,” “Best International Band,” and “Best Album.” The band’s most aggressive and ambitious album yet, 2022’s Omens finds Lamb of God as uncompromising as ever before, now as always redefining American metal with each and every move.
