LAMB OF GOD: New Song “Erase This” StreamingFriday, 10th July 2015
Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD are streaming “Erase This,” a song from their upcoming VII: Sturm Und Drang album, which will be released on July 24 via Epic in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Entertainment in all territories outside of North America.
LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton told Rolling Stone magazine: “Lyrically, ‘Erase This’ deals with negative people and how they can drag you down without you even necessarily realizing it. It’s about people you may even be close to, but who are stuck in their own self-pity and woe-is-me, kind of victim status. That kind of energy can spread like a virus. Most of us as humans have been on both the giving and receiving end of that kind of attitude, but the older I get, the more I try to focus on not allowing that type of vibe to enter my mindset. Musically, it’s pretty trademark LAMB OF GOD riffing. It’s got that ’12 over 4′ [time signature] groove that we’ve used before in songs like ‘Laid To Rest’ and a cool talk box in the bridge. I think it’s a pretty badass track. It’s one of my favorites on the album.”
VII: Sturm Und Drang is 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, CA and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, CA. LAMB OF GOD’s last album, the 2012 Grammy-nominated Resolution, debuted at #3 on the US Billboard Top 200, #1 on the US Top Hard Rock and Rock Album charts, #2 on the Canadian albums chart, and #3 on the Australian albums chart.
