Lamb of God Book First 2013 Show at Spain’s Resurrection Festival
Lamb of God's future remains murky while the remainder of Randy Blythe's manslaughter trial looms, but the band is making sure to think positively, and that includes booking their first show of 2013 in hopes that their frontman will eventually be cleared of charges. The band revealed in a tweet their participation in the 2013 Resurrection Festival in Spain this August.
The three-day music weekend runs Aug. 1-3 in Viviero, Spain. On top of the band's tweet, the festival created a new teaser clip showing off the participants in this year's event. Featured in the clip were mentions of Killswitch Engage, D.R.I., Comeback Kid, Millencolin and yes … Lamb of God. In addition, the bands from the first festival announcement were featured in a full bill at the end of the clip. Those acts include Slayer, Bad Religion, Black Flag and Trivium.
Blythe returned to the Czech Republic earlier this month to answer to charges of his alleged involvement in the death of a fan at a show in 2010. The frontman was accused of pushing the audience member off the stage, with the fall causing a fatal head injury that presented itself well after the show took place.
A delay in the trial was called so that additional witnesses could testify. Before returning home, Blythe visited the prison where he was held last year. He's expected back in court in Prague on March 4.
