Grammy Award-winning, uncompromising Virginia natives Lamb of God have announced their long-awaited return to the UK for their own headline tour in April 2020. Not content with laying waste to 80,000 fans at Download Festival earlier this year, the band are coming back in April with a killer line-up featuring labelmates, German thrash legends Kreator and Texan thrash squad Power Trip opening proceedings each night.

The State Of Unrest shows will be Lamb Of God’s first headline tour of the UK since January 2014 with inimitable frontman D. Randall Blythe commenting, “It’s always a blast when you tour with someone for the first time, so we’re looking forward to hitting the road with Kreator, as well as getting some more hang time with our maniac pals in Power Trip. See ya in April!”

The band have been hard at work on their eighth studio album, recently announcing that drummer Art Cruz, who has been touring with the band since 2018, would remain with the group and join them in the studio for pre-production and recording. The new record, set for release via Nuclear Blast/Epic, will be the follow-up to the wrenching, critically acclaimed, 2015 album VII: Sturm Und Drang.

To get you in the mood for the dates, here’s their epic video for “512” taken from 2015’s critically-acclaimed VII: Sturm Und Drang album:

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
