Lamb Of God’s Chris Adler On Manslaughter Case: “We Believe That We Are Innocent Of It And Justice Will Sort Itself Out”
Speaking on Blythe‘s pending trial:
“They haven’t really played their hand out in the case and what they have on us. Obviously this tragedy happened, but how they’re going to go about prosecuting is a mystery to us. Not knowing how their justice system works and being repeatedly surprised by events from when we landed there, who knows what will happen? But we believe that we are innocent of it and justice will sort itself out.”
He also mentioned that the incident has changed the bands perspective:
“Overall, for me anyway, it really helped recapture what drives me to do this to begin with. After 10,000 shows and records that sell really well, you start to lose touch… So when you’re threatened with it being over in a blink of an eye, you realize how fragile and special it is. I’ve been really motivated to play harder and faster than I ever have, so I guess there’s a silver lining there.”
According Adler, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler have been working on new material, while Blythe has been writing lyrics. No plans are in place to track any new material in the immediate future however.
