Lamb of God Detail New Album 'Omen,' Plot Massive North American Tour

Metal favorites Lamb of God have announced the arrival of their next album, Omens, Oct. 7 via Epic Records.

The new album was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur, and it will follow Lamb of God’s 2020 self-titled effort. The album’s first single, “Nevermore,” will be released this Friday, June 10.

Lamb of God recorded Omens at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, a studio that’s also been used by the likes of the Doors, Pink Floyd, the Ramones, and Soundgarden. Lamb of God also cut the record live-to-tape, with guitarist Mark Morton saying in a statement, “The inner workings of the band have never been better. You can hear it in Omens. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”

Vocalist D. Randall Blythe added, “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world. It’s a very pissed-off record… It is extremely pissed-off.” 

Along with announcing Omens — which is available to pre-order — Lamb of God laid out a lengthy North American tour later this year. The trek will kick off Sept. 9 at Coney Island in Brooklyn with dates scheduled all the way through Oct. 20 at the Pavilion at Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas. Tickets for all shows will go on sale June 10 at 10 a.m. local time via Lamb of God’s website.
