Lamb of God and Sixthman, creators of unforgettable festivals on sand and at sea for more than two decades, also recently announced the first-ever Headbangers Boat, sailing October 31 – November 4, 2023 from Miami, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas aboard the Norwegian Pearl. Cabins go on sale on Friday, November 11 at 7pm GMT (2pm EST).

Lamb of God Headbangers Boat will feature live music from sun-up to sundown, across several stages and settings throughout the ship, including two unique shows from Lamb of God, featuring a complete performance of their 2004 landmark third album, Ashes of the Wake, in its entirety. The 5x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band will further honour heavy metal’s past, present, and future by curating a spectacular selection of special guests, including such hard rock icons as Mastodon, Hatebreed, GWAR, Shadows Fall, God Forbid, Fit For An Autopsy, and Lamb of God’s Mark Morton (Solo Band), with special guest hosts Jose Mangin and Riki Rachtman, Jamey Jasta’s The Jasta Show, and more to be announced.

In addition, the fully immersive schedule of events will see members of Lamb of God hosting an array of activities including a Q&A conversation and photography show with vocalist Randy Blythe, a drum-off with drummer Art Cruz, and casino tournament with bassist John Campbell. All guests will receive a signed Lamb of God commemorative item, with a special cabin photo with Lamb of God available exclusively to pre-sale buyers.

“Imagine the sheer horror on the faces of all the happy families aboard, let’s say, a Disney Cruise, when they look across the sea and see GWAR decapitating someone on the main deck of a big-ass boat filled with a few thousand crazed metalheads,” says Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe. “If there’s any better reason to go on the Headbangers Boat, I can’t think of one…well, that and all our other friends we’ve played shows on land with that will be joining us. It’s gonna be a party for sure – see y’all somewhere in the Atlantic!”

“A thrash metal cruise vacation to the Bahamas? Hell yea! Headbangers Boat!,” says Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton. “We’re stoked about this one y’all! Join us in a celebration of the heavy metal movement that these bands and these fans have been building for the last two decades. Lots of incredible bands with some more surprises announcing soon. LFG!”

Latest album Omens is out now via Nuclear Blast Records and is perhaps Lamb Of God’s angriest album yet. Produced by long-time collaborator Josh Wilbur (Korn, Megadeth), Omens is a vicious new testament for the Richmond, Virginia-based band, a furious entry in their beloved catalogue. “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world,” Blythe explains. “It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed-off.”  Most recently the band shared blistering single “Ditch” and its official video. Watch “Ditch” here.

The Omens album is available now at Lamb-Of-God.com and Record Store, boasting several exclusive items, including a signed coloured vinyl variant, shirt, hoodie, and signed CDs with an alternate colour cover. UK vinyl variants include standard black vinyl; a crystal clear, silver, and black marbled vinyl (exclusive to the UK); white and sky blue marbled vinyl; and a silver vinyl (band shop exclusive).

About LAMB OF GOD:

“For millions of headbangers, Lamb Of God are simply the most important contemporary metal band in the world,” Guitar World observed. Lamb Of God grew from basement shows and grimy DIY venues to arena headliners. Over the course of their career, the Richmond, Virginia-based band earned a reverence akin to musical forefathers (and road companions) Metallica, Slayer, and Megadeth. Timeless songs like “Laid to Rest,” “Redneck,” “Walk with Me in Hell,” and “Now You’ve Got Something to Die For” became anthems in the heavy metal songbook. They shoved heavy metal into the new millennium with New American Gospel (2000). As the Palaces Burn (2003) joined Rolling Stone’s Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time. Ashes of the Wake (2004) was the first Lamb Of Gold album certified gold by the RIAA, a feat once all but impossible for a contemporary extreme metal band. Sacrament (2006), Revolver’s Album of the Year, went gold as well. The raw and organic malice of Wrath (2009) began the band’s enduring relationship with Wilbur. Both the diverse Resolution (2012) and the explosive VII: Sturm und Drang (2015) debuted in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 (including a UK career best of #7 in the national album chart at that point for VII: Sturm und Drang) . The 2020 self-titled set, their first new material in five years, added instant classics “Memento Mori” and “Resurrection Man” to the repertoire, alongside eight more monster tracks. Revolver, Metal Hammer, and Loudwire included Lamb Of God on their year-end Best Albums lists. The momentum continues with Omens, the band’s most aggressive and ambitious album yet.
