Lamb Of God expects to use more clean vocals in the future

Lamb of God Lamb Of God fans disappointed with the incorporation of "clean vocals" on the band's latest release, 2016's The Duke EP, will not be pleased to learn that frontman Randy Blythe's use of cleans just might be here to stay. In a new interview with The Salt Lake Tribune, Lamb Of God bassist John Campbell discussed the title track of the aforementioned EP, which was Blythe's first use of clean vocals with LoG.
"They played ['The Duke'] back for me and said, 'Hey, I just wanna tell you something — Randy's singing on this.' And my heart dropped — I've heard him singing on the bus, just goofing off, and it's not good! But obviously, that's just him joking around. So my heart sank, I was a little nervous, and then the track came on and I was completely blown away. He completely nailed it and effectively used that in his palette for doing vocals."
Campbell was then asked if Blythe will do more singing in the future, to which he responded:
"There is no telling, but I would imagine, yes, probably. I think some people still have a hard time with [it]. But we're always trying to evolve and come up with new ways to present heavy music. Not that it gets boring, but, you know, we don't want to go out there and play the same songs every night, or play the same set and have every song be exactly the same. It's nice to have some different emotions, some different dynamics to the set."
Don't expect to hear new music from Lamb Of God any time soon, however, as writing for their next release has yet to begin, and the band will be taking a substantial break following their current tour cycle.
