LAMB OF GOD Bassist Leaves Tour, Replaced By FEAR FACTORY’s Matt Devries

Thursday, 14th November 2013

A family emergency forced LAMB OF GOD bassist John Campbell to leave the band’s current North American tour. FEAR FACTORY’s Matt Devries (ex-CHIMAIRA) has stepped in as Campbell’s temporary replacement and will play three more shows with the Richmond, VA metallers.

DeVries comments: “Stoked and honored to be out on such an incredible tour with some great friends.”

DeVries made his live debut with LAMB OF GOD Tuesday night (November 12) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and will be heading out on tour with FEAR FACTORY afterwards as the supporting band for MEGADETH.

LAMB OF GOD cancelled Monday night’s (November 11) concert in Kent, Washington due to Campbell’s family emergency. The band’s North American co-headlining tour with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE kicked off on October 22 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is scheduled to conclude on November 26 in Silver Spring, Maryland.

As previously reported, LAMB OF GOD has recently released a special 10th-anniversary edition of its As The Palaces Burn album.
