Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe Reveals Futuristic Novel Plans

(TeamRock Radio) Randy Blythe is working on a novel that is set "50 to 100 years in the future." The Lamb Of God frontman will get to work on the fictional tale later this year, once the band's touring commitments are over and after he's put the finishing touches to a photobook he's also working on.

Blythe tells Metal Hammer's Chris Chantler: "I'm working on an outline for a book, but that's about as much as I can do while I'm on the road. Writing a book makes writing a record look like going to kindergarten. It's a much more tense, concerted, extended, creative effort - it requires a lot of focus that this environment does not provide.

"It's set 50 to 100 years in the future. I'm wracking my brain right now, because you have to figure out all sorts of little things we don't think about, because of the incredibly rapid advancement of technology.

"I've been thinking about the plot, and at first I thought, 'Oh the ending's just got to be awful.' But then I thought, 'That's self­-indulgent.' I've been thinking about how I can make the end of the book optimistic, and it's hard. And I haven't decided how it's going to end, but more than likely there's got to be an optimistic end. Otherwise, I'll just be f***ing depressed. And real life is depressing enough." Read more here.
