Lamb of God Cancel Tour With Dethklok + Gojira Due to Randy Blythe’s Incarceration

Lamb of God

As Randy Blythe remains in a Czech prison and his release remains in question, Lamb of God have been forced to cancel their summer 2012 tour with Dethklok and Gojira.

Lamb of God’s headlining tour with French metallers Gojira and Metalocalypse cartoon phenomenons Dethklok was set to begin on Aug. 1 in Seattle, but with Randy Blythe’s bail being contested for the second time, Lamb of God cannot guarantee Blythe’s freedom by the tour’s kickoff. The band has also been forced to cancel their sets at Canada’s Heavy MTL and Heavy T.O. festivals, with their spot now being filled by Swedish metal band In Flames.

Earlier today, the following press release was issued by Lamb of God’s representatives:

Due to the continued incarceration of Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

Lamb of God wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour.  Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no Lamb of God.

Dethklok, meanwhile, issued their own statement, saying that they would be announcing a fall tour in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, Lamb of God are continuing to accept donations for Randy Blythe’s legal fund.
