LAMB OF GOD have announced a new album!
Titled Omens, the upcoming album from the American metal titans is the follow-up to 2020’s self-titled record and is scheduled to be released in October this year, via Nuclear Blast Records.
Produced by longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur [KORN, MEGADETH], the upcoming album intends to be a densely muscular affair, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike. “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world,” explains vocalist D. Randall Blythe. “It’s a very pissed-off record. It is extremely pissed-off.”
The band tracked live in the room together at Henson Recording Studios (formerly A&M Studios) in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from THE DOORS, PINK FLOYD, THE RAMONES, SOUNDGARDEN, among others. “The inner workings of the band have never been better,” explains guitarist Mark Morton. “You can hear it in Omens. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, you can view both the track list and artwork for the upcoming new album below:
- To The Grave
- Ill Designs
- Denial Mechanism
- September Song
Also, the band have confirmed a massive tour across North America for this September and October. Support comes from special guests KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, as well as BARONESS, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, SPIRITBOX, ANIMALS AS LEADERS, SUICIDE SILENCE and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY on select dates.
Speaking about the North American run, Mark Morton says, “two decades ago, LAMB OF GOD, along with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, were a part of a new wave of American heavy metal music. Our scene grew from a small, loosely connected network of underground shows in basements and warehouses, into a global phenomenon that helped define an entire generation of modern heavy metal. We are thrilled to announce The Omens Tour, which celebrates not only the perseverance and impact of that original movement, but also the creativity and originality of the bands that it influenced. Heavy metal is alive and well. The Omens Tour proudly showcases the depth and diversity of our scene. This is not a tour to miss.”
