Hatebreed’s Jamey Jasta Releases Official “Free Randy Blythe” T-Shirt

Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta has released an officially sanctioned “Free Randy Blythe” shirt for his imprisoned close friend, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe. All proceeds from the shirt, which you can purchase at Martyrstore.net, will go to Blythe‘s legal defense fund.

On top of that, Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton recently made another public plea for fans to help donate with the costs for Blythe‘s legal defense fund. Speaking through a series of tweets Morton offered:

“i WILL tell u this…if u REALLY want to help Randy, contribute to his defense fund. Lawyers are working 24/7 to help him & theyre EXPENSIVE. no petition, no trend on Twitter, no bootleg t-shirt nor rant on some blog will help him….he needs MONEY to keep his lawyers ON IT. i know thats not exciting or sexy or cool…..but thats the fucking truth.”

“i will surely be blasted by internet trollers for talking about money for Randy…but I DONT CARE. he needs his LAWYERS & they’re EXPENSIVE.”

As previously reported, Blythe has remained in custody in Prague, Czech Republic for over a month on suspicion of manslaughter. The potential charges stem from the fatal injuries suffered by a 19 year old fan who attended a 2010 show the group played in Prague.

The fan repeatedly took to the stage and had numerous interactions with Blythe (and security guards,) most of which were captured on film. Thus far the prosecution in the case has repeatedly blocked Blythe‘s attempts at bail.

A final decision as to whether Blythe will be released on bail or be held indefinitely is expected to be made next week.

Naam Premiere “The Starchild” Music Video

Naam have premiered their new music video for their sprawling 9 minute track “The Starchild” below via Noisey. The clip was shot with director Zev Deans with the song appearing on the groups latest EP, “The Ballad Of The Starchild“.

Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland recently spoke with Revolvermag.com regarding the bands next album (the so-called “Stampede Of The Disco Elephants“;) and the impending new full-length release from his Black Light Burns project.

Speaking on the new Bizkit release, he revealed that the outfit have fourteen songs in various stages of completion. When asked about the direction, he stated:

“We’re going two different directions right now. One direction is very heavy like our last album Gold Cobra, but with me pushing the riffs further than they were before. But we’re also working on hip-hop club tracks that have guitar and Fred on them. We’re coming from two very different places on this and right now they’re starting to cross over into each other, which is exciting. We don’t want to make Gold Cobra II.”

Producer DetaiL has been overseeing the sessions for the album, which currently doesn’t have a release date attached to it. However, the group do intend to launch a major U.S. tour in support of it this October with Borland‘s Black Light Burns opening.

Some readers may recall that they were approaching Norma Jean as a potential support act for the trek. More on the album, Black Light Burns and Limp Bizkit‘s M.I.A. single with labelmate Lil Wayne can be found at the above-mentioned link.
