Lamb Of God - Tour With Dethklok And Gojira Cancelled


Lamb Of God's North American tour with Dethklok and Gojira was scheduled to start on August 1st, but now comes the confirmation that it has been cancelled because Randy Blythe is still in jail and is uncertain when he will be released.

Lamb Of God has issued the following statement: "Due to the continued incarceration of Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band's co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1 in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy's release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy's release, it is the band's intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December."

"Lamb Of God wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no Lamb of God."

According to the latest reports, the prosecutor has challenged Randy Blythe's newly paid bail of $400,000, meaning that on Friday (July 27th), the prosecutor will submit to the judge a reason for the bail denial. At that point, the judge has five days to rule, and another five days for it to be written or published to the court.

[Also thanks to CHEF METAL HEAD for the last bit]

This is embarrassing. Relase him already.

If he was in a more reputable line of work the states would have already stepped in to retrieve him.

NO!!! Darn... Well, I suppose it was too good to be true anyway. Plus, I figured something like this would happen what with Randy's ordeal, but I was hoping they'd at least not cancel the tour since it was technically a co-headlining tour. Shucks.

So lame!!! I was really hoping it would still go on as well and maybe Gojira would co headline. Now all i have to look forward to is Iron Maiden. ERG! I really wanted to see Gojira! SO not fair.
Oh and I wonder how I get my money back.

That's very true. I am honestly surprised about the way they are handling the situation.

How is that even the case? US citizens have to obey the laws of the country they're in, just like everyone else.

Yea i agree, its a sticky situation when things like this happen and I think no matter who it is(unless its a gov official), the US wouldnt step in considering they do have a legit reason to detain him.

But how the fuck did he get near half a million dollars for that bail?!??! I knew LambofGod were popular but are they really that wealthy?

Randy's FUCKED AND FAR FROM HOME CHARLIE BROWN!

But really though, he's fucked and will probably spend 5-10 in a fucking Czech prison, becoming even more fucked. Pun intended.

Not a big LoG fan, and was mostly looking forward to see Gojira and Dethklok, but that whole thing sucks with Randy STILL being in jail.

Dude. Fans shouldn't be sending him money. They need to send him a 5 step program on how to properly grasp soap bars and how to hold down cell blocks.

For real. If I were already in the prison that Randy would be sent to, he'd be a prime target to get shanked. Money says he joins a gang to keep himself from being murdered hahaha
