Lamb of God have announced that they are postponing their ‘State Of Unrest’ UK & European run, which was set to take place in November and December 2022.

The sold out UK headline leg was scheduled for December with thrash legends Kreator as special guests, and Thy Art Is Murder and Gatecreeper rounding out the bill. The revised UK dates will take place in March 2023, together with Kreator as special guests, but new support will be confirmed in coming weeks.

The band stated simply on their social media:

“We regrettably announce that due to unforeseen circumstances we have to postpone the ‘State of Unrest’ tour with Kreator to February / March 2023. Support for the new dates will be announced soon.”

Original tickets remain valid for the new dates although it has not been possible to reschedule the Glasgow, UK show and so refunds for that date will be available from point of purchase.

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.
