LAMB OF GOD unleash ‘Evidence’; inaugural ‘Headbangers Boat’ cruise sets sail Oct 31st
LAMB OF GOD UNLEASH EXPLOSIVE NEW SINGLE ‘EVIDENCE’
“HEADBANGERS BOAT” – THE INAUGURAL LAMB OF GOD CRUISE – SETS SAIL OCTOBER 31ST
Back with a crushing anthem, LAMB OF GOD unleash a brand-new single entitled ‘Evidence’. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated metal titans originally recorded the song during the sessions for their acclaimed 2022 opus and ninth full-length LP, Omens. They’ve uncovered it in honour of the latter’s one-year anniversary today.
Regarding the single, vocalist Randy Blythe shared, “One of the more baffling aspects of modern day life is the conscious rejection of empirical facts in favour of Internet echo chamber emotional security blankets. Truth is not subjective, no matter how uncomfortable that makes some people. Art is though, so enjoy the song, however you may choose to interpret it.”
Exploding as a signature LAMB OF GOD pit-starter, ‘Evidence’ barges in with a pummelling polyrhythmic groove fortified by airtight riffing. Against this backdrop, Blythe’s apocalyptic observations cut deep as he muses, “The road to hell is paved with bad concessions,” before repeating on the refrain, “The body politic has decomposed.” It culminates on one last burst of cathartic energy baptised in distortion and venomous screams.

Initially released last year on-demand for a limited one-month release alongside physical CD and vinyl merch bundles, this marks the wide-release of the inside look at the process of writing and recording the metal icons celebrated ninth album. The documentary will be available HERE starting at 8pm BST.

ABOUT LAMB OF GOD:
Nobody has waved the flag for 21st century American heavy metal higher or harder than LAMB OF GOD. The Richmond, Virginia-based band have quietly emerged as the genre’s foremost torchbearers with a feral intensity brewed at grimy basement shows and uncanny power amplified on some of the world’s biggest stages. Along the way, they have garnered five career GRAMMY® Award nominations, sold over 3 million albums worldwide, packed arenas around the world, and tallied over 1 billion streams and counting—a true rarity for a group this heavy. Following the world-burning New American Gospel in 2000, they delivered a classic in the form of 2003’s As the Palaces Burn, which Rolling Stone touted as one of “The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time.” They served up back-to-back gold-certified records with Ashes of the Wake  and Sacrament  — christened “Album of the Year” by Revolver. Wrath  catapulted to #2 on the Billboard 200 followed by consecutive Top 3 entries Resolution  and VII: Sturm und Drang . Metallica handpicked them as direct support on various tours, while they’ve welcomed everyone from Chino Moreno of Deftones to Chuck Billy of Testament to appear on tracks. Following 2020’s unanimously acclaimed Lamb of God, the 2022 blockbuster Omens arrived as their sixth consecutive Top 15 debut on the Billboard 200. On its heels, they canvased North America with Pantera and launched one of their own biggest headline tours. Still, they continue raise the flag for metal without apology or compromise — just unrivalled integrity.
