LAMB OF GOD's New Album Is Political, But It's Not About Donald Trump

Posted by on February 14, 2020 at 11:39 am

Lamb of God will release their new self-titled album on May 8 and it's pretty political, according to vocalist Randall Blythe. Though probably not in the way you think it might be.

Blythe recently spoke to Kerrang! and revealed that the new album is not about Donald Trump. Instead, he said the album is more a broad look at world politics and just how bad things are getting. He adds that writing a political album about specific moments in time would probably get outdated quick in 2020.

“I can’t write about the Trump administration because it changes so quick. And if you look at the UK with Brexit, everything changes so fast it would be a fruitless exercise to try to pin a theme on one specific political topic. I wanted to look at the broader, wide-angle view of our global society, and figure out what has allowed this environment to occur.”

Lamb of God is drummer Art Cruz's debut with the band in a studio setting after having filled in for now-ex-drummer Chris Adler live since 2018. Lamb of God will feature appearances by Testament vocalist Chuck Billy on the song "Routes" and Hatebreed vocalist Jamey Jasta on "Poison Dream." The album was produced by Josh Wilbur (KornMegadethGojira, Trivium) and pre-orders are available here.

Lamb of God will be doing some seriously extensive touring this year with Megadeth, In Flames, and Trivium. Grab your tickets here with the password METAL.
