Lamb Of God have revealed a brand new single and video, "Checkmate," which comes from the band's first release in five years and the first to feature new drummer Art Cruz. The self-titled Lamb Of God is due out May 8 via Epic Records. You can check it out below.

"'Checkmate' brings together all the components of the Lamb Of God sound that we've been developing over the last two decades, but with the ambition and ferocity that comes with the start of a new chapter for our band," says guitarist Mark Morton. "Re-energized and reignited, this is Lamb Of God 2020. We've never been more excited."

"Putting only our name on it is a statement," Blythe says. "This is Lamb Of God. Here and now."
