LAMB OF GOD: New Album Due In JulyFriday, 15th May 2015
Grammy-nominated, chart-topping Richmond, Virginia-based metallers LAMB OF GOD will release their highly anticipated seventh full-length album, VII: Sturm Und Drang, this July via Nuclear Blast, with whom the band signed a record deal for all territories outside of North America.
The album was once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, California.
Today, after weeks of hinting at fans about the imminent release, the band is unleashing a brand new track, “Still Echoes”, via LambOfGodVII.com.
“Still Echoes” will be available via all digital retailers and streaming services beginning Monday, May 18.
LAMB OF GOD frontman Randy Blythe states: “The time has come to give the fans their first taste of the new LAMB OF GOD album.
“This is a very, very dark, yet sonically highly varied, record.As it’s always good to come out of the gate hard with a fast and aggressive one, we chose this track, ‘Still Echoes’, to kick it off. Enjoy/destroy.”
During a May 2010 LAMB OF GOD show in the Czech Republic, 19-year-old concertgoer Daniel Nosek sustained a head injury that allegedly led to the fan’s death. Blythe was charged with manslaughter in the case, but was eventually acquitted.
