Lamb Of God have announced that they will be releasing their new album, "Omens," on October 7th and launching a headline tour featuring support from Killswitch Engage.
The new album was produced by longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (Korn, Megadeth), and the band will be releasing their first single from the effort, "Nevermore", this Friday, June 10th.
The Omens Tour will include different support on the legs from Baroness, Motionless In White, Spiritbox, Animals As Leaders, Suicide Silence and Fit For An Autopsy.
Mark Morton had this to say, "Two decades ago, Lamb of God, along with Killswitch Engage, were a part of a new wave of American heavy metal music. Our scene grew from a small, loosely connected network of underground shows in basements and warehouses, into a global phenomenon that helped define an entire generation of modern heavy metal.
"We are thrilled to announce The Omens Tour, which celebrates not only the perseverance and impact of that original movement, but also the creativity and originality of the bands that it influenced. Heavy metal is alive and well.
"The Omens Tour proudly showcases the depth and diversity of our scene. This is not a tour to miss." See the dates below:
