Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Says He Won’t Be Thinking Of The Band “For A Good Long While”


Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe has spoken of his plan to unplug during the coming months, having now wrapped up the cycle for the groups 2012 outing, “Resolution“. Blythe‘s need to recharge is also entirely understandable given that during the cycle he was arrested, tried and ultimately acquitted for the death of a stagediving fan at a show they played in 2012.

Read on for Blythe‘s immediate plans:

“And so another album cycle comes to an end. This has been a very eventful, at times VERY STRESSFUL, album cycle, & it’s been about three years since we started on this one in our practice space- I need a break. Tomorrow is a 19 hour flight back to the USA, & then another one home to RVA, & except for two festival shows in 2014, I will not be thinking about lamb of god, touring, playing heavy metal, writing new lamb of god material- NONE OF THAT STUFF- AT ALL- for a good long while.

Time to do other things for a bit, & let my brain regroup, & be a somewhat normal human being. This has been a pretty wild ride though, & to end it in AFRICA of all places still amazes the crap outta me. So thanks Johannesburg for an awesome end to the Resolution tour cycle, & to all you other bands, hear this: the game has been stepped up, & the ante has risen.

You are not a REAL G until you come to South Africa & your fans throw one of THESE to you on stage- a warthog skull. Takes the cake for the strangest thing throw at me on stage ever, & I’ve had some weird shit thrown at me- I named him Jeff. Jeff, the South African warthog. Top that, y’all. Don’t front like your ballin’ if you ain’t rockin’ that wart hog shizzy.

I figured I’d finish up the cycle with a nice self-portrait. Me & Jeff are outty. Peace, & one love. – Randy

The aforementioned trial and a cross section of the bands fans will be chronicled in an upcoming documentary film on the band titled “As Palaces Burn“. It is due to open next month with more details available at
