Randy Blythe's Manslaughter Trial Bankrupted Lamb of God

Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler says that the band is now bankrupt following the heavy expenses of frontman's Randy Blythe's manslaughter trial.

Adler made the revelation to The Virginian-Pilot and also said that the group initially thought that the charges weren't serious. "We said, 'It's all going to be over tomorrow, right? So we'll be able to tour next week,'" Adler said. "That was our mindset. We were just waiting for the green light to get back out on the road."

However, Blythe faced a long and expensive road to clear his name in the manslaughter trial and the band was forced to cancel a tour to promote their "Resolution" album.

"Not only were we not able to generate any income, but we ended up having to pay more than half a million dollars in legal fees," said Adler. "It bankrupted the entire band, no money left for any kind of payroll or anything.

"When Randy was acquitted, everything was on the line at that point. Either it was completely over, or we had a chance to get back out there and pay these bills and get ourselves back on our feet."

That wasn't all they faced. Read the full report for more details here.
