Lamb Of God's Randy Blythe To Sing For Eyehategod On U.S. Tour

Lamb Of God

(Metal Hammer) Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe will front Eyehategod on their upcoming US tour. He'll fill in for Mike Williams who's taken a step back from the band to deal with unspecified health issues.

The 11 dates are due to get underway in October, with Blythe's appearances coming on the back of Eyehategod's two August shows which featured Phil Anselmo on lead vocals.

Blythe says in a statement: "Anyone who knows me well knows I am a massive Eyehategod fan. I've seen them play more times than I can remember. I wear their merch - I even have a freaking Eyehategod tattoo that I got in New Orleans. They are one of my favourite bands of all time.

"So it's a bit difficult for me to say, 'I'm super-happy that I've been asked to fill in for Mike Williams.' In fact, I can't honestly say that at all because no one would rather see Mike do this tour more than myself.

"Mike is the voice of Eyehategod and I respect him as a friend, musician, and writer way too much to ever think otherwise. What I can say is that I am beyond honoured to be serving a brief tour of duty on vocals with Eyehategod for this upcoming run." Read more here.
