LAMB OF GOD have debuted a new live quarantine session video for the track “Routes,” featuring a guest appearance by Testament vocalist Chuck Billy. “Routes” is taken from last year’s self-titled release, which will see a deluxe version reissue this Friday, March 26, via Nuclear Blast. 

It’s always an honour to be asked to perform with LAMB OF GOD, especially on this song,” says Billy, who also lent his voice to the original album version of the song. “It has such a deep meaning for me personally with my native American heritage. I’m happy Randy included me to get the message out about what is going on with Native Americans in the USA.

Late last week, LAMB OF GOD premiered the official video for “Memento Mori (Live),” part of their upcoming Live In Richmond, VA release. The song is also available to stream on all DSPs here. The video, filmed in the band’s native Richmond, Virginia, for a September 2020 livestream, is viewable now on YouTube and the band’s website at http://lamb-of-god.com

Live In Richmond, VA features the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful live stream events from September, in which the band performed their critically acclaimed, self-titled album Lamb Of God in full, plus an encore of four songs including “Ruin,” “Contractor,” “512,” and the debut live performance of “The Death Of Us,” a new song the band wrote and recorded in quarantine for the Bill & Ted Face The Music movie and soundtrack.

At the time, the live stream in small, 500-cap, local venue The Broadberry was described by Metal Hammer as “a storming return” and by Classic Rock as “ferociously magnificent.

It will be available in the UK as a CD & DVD digipak, on black vinyl, on red splatter white vinyl (Nuclear Blast store exclusive), on black splatter flesh pink vinyl (Lamb Of God store exclusive), and digitally, where the live album is also bundled with the original studio release as a deluxe version.

The CD also includes two bonus tracks, “Ghost Shaped People” and “Hyperthermic / Accelerate.” The DVD includes a new director’s cut with bonus material. 

Pre-orders are available now.

This album, and in particular, this deluxe edition is something I’m incredibly proud of,” guitarist Willie Adler previously said. “Throughout the process of writing, recording, and the subsequent filming of the live stream, I knew we were creating much more than a collection of songs.

Much more than a simple streamed performance. This was focused energy. Energy that, to me, is very tangible. And now, more than ever, in an era where human interaction is so limited, art…..be it music, visual, or otherwise, is a human connection point. And we need as much of that as possible! I hope everyone enjoys this deluxe edition as much as we enjoyed creating it. Thank you.

Originally released on June 19 last year, LAMB OF GOD’s first new album in five years was met with universal acclaim, not only among major rock journalists – which saw the band interviewed by UK broadsheet newspaper The Telegraph for the first time – but with all strata of metal fans around the world. 

As well as dominating the all-important US metal radio (9 weeks at #1 & a landslide of spins over the #2 spot), the album was included on many end-of-year Best Of lists, including the coveted #1 spot on Consequence of Sound’s Top 30 Metal + Hard Rock Albums of 2020.

They stated, “Along with bringing in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, LAMB OF GOD have been one of music’s most important acts over the past 20 years. From their phenomenal instrumentation to the potency of their sociopolitical lyricism, LAMB OF GOD remain titans of the genre, continuing to craft remarkable works of thrilling and captivating adrenaline… also proves to be a profound work of heavy metal… perhaps the most important metal album of 2020. It’s not only the album of LAMB OF GOD’s career, but the heavy album of the year.
