Lamb Of God Finish New Album


Lamb Of God guitarist Mark Morton has revealed that the band’s ninth full-length album has been completed and will meet a release during the first half of this year. The album will be the group’s first with drummer Art Cruz (Winds Of Plague) behind the kit, following the complicated departure of Chris Adler.

Appearing on SiriusXM‘s ‘Trunk Nation‘, Morton said of the album:

“We’ve got new music coming soon. And I really, really couldn’t be more excited about it. There’s a whole fresh new energy in the band. It’s our first recordings with Art. Art‘s been playing drums with us now for a couple of years, but these are our first songs that we’ve written and recorded with him there.

And it’s just a thrill to see these things come to life. And I couldn’t be happier with how the record is turning out, and I’m excited for the world to hear that. There’s gonna be a lot of touring around that, so we’re gonna be super busy on the road.”

As for a potential release date, he offered:

“There’s not. There’s a time frame. I don’t actually know a date — they haven’t announced yet. But I would think — first half of the year, I think.”

He later went on to say that final mixes and masters for the outing had been printed at this point, offering “I think it’s been printed at this point. I think the last mixes and masters are printed.”
