103.3 THE EDGE AND RAPIDS THEATRE PRESENTS: LAMB OF GOD WITH SPECIAL GUESTS IN FLAMES, HELLYEAH, ANDSYLOSIS:
RAPIDS THEATRE MONDAY NOVEMBER 26TH 2012
Originally known by the less-than-subtle moniker Burn the Priest, Richmond, Virginia-based Lamb of God decided to change their name shortly after the release of a self-titled debut in 1998. Featuring vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Will Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler, the newly rechristened Lamb of God were launched in the year 2000 with their acclaimed New American Gospel album. The group then embarked on a lengthy touring spree, spending much of the next two years preaching its "pure American death metal" at major heavy metal festivals and small clubs alike. Work on a follow-up effort with producer and Strapping Young Lad mastermind Devin Townsend took place in between these many road jaunts, so that Lamb of God's sophomore LP, As the Palaces Burn, was released in summer 2003. Ashes of the Wake quickly followed it in 2004. Produced by Machine, it featured the most fully realized material of the band's career. Ashes was both a chart and critical hit and set up a year's worth of successful touring for Lamb of God. Epic also reissued Burn the Priest, the 1998 debut from the original band. The Killadelphia DVD appeared in 2005, documenting a particularly fierce stretch of shows in Philly, and the same program's audio edition dropped toward the end of the same year. Sacrament was released in 2006, followed by Wrath in 2009. A massive three-disc retrospective entitled Hourglass: The Anthology was issued by Epic in 2010, covering their independent releases as well as their major-label years, and including a third disc of rarities. The set was released in two configurations: it was available for purchase in either three single-disc volumes or as a full box set. The band spent 2010 touring before eventually settling down in 2011 to record new material with producer Josh Wilbur. The result was their seventh album, 2012's Resolution. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi

After a successful reunion with singer Randy Blythe at the two Knotfest shows in mid-August, LAMB OF GOD is pleased to announce a 38-date fall U.S tour starting October 30th in Phoenix, Arizona. Joining LAMB OF GOD as direct support for the entire tour is In Flames. Hatebreed will be joining the package from October 30th until November 19th at which point HELLYEAH will replace them for the remainder of the shows. British band Sylosis will open all dates.
