Lamb Of God complete new album
Lamb Of God have apparently completed work on their next studio album and follow-up to 2015's VII: Sturm und Drang. During a new appearance on SiriusXM's "Trunk Nation," guitarist Mark Morton was asked if the new LP was done, to which he responded:
"I'm done with it, that's for sure. I'm pretty sure [everyone else in the band is] done with it too. I think it's been printed at this point. I think the last mixes and masters are printed."Speaking on the record, Morton offered:
"We've got new music coming soon. And I really, really couldn't be more excited about it. There's a whole fresh new energy in the band. It's our first recordings with Art [Cruz]. Art's been playing drums with us now for a couple of years, but these are our first songs that we've written and recorded with him there. And it's just a thrill to see these things come to life. And I couldn't be happier with how the record is turning out, and I'm excited for the world to hear that. There's gonna be a lot of touring around that, so we're gonna be super busy on the road."As for its expected release date, Morton said, "first half of the year, I think."
