Support on all dates will be Decapitated with Terror appearing through June 10 and The Acacia Strainappearing on the remaining shows.
The ordeal is finally over for Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe. A panel of judges in the Czech Republic ruled today (Tuesday, March 5) that concert promoters — not Blythe — were mainly responsible for the 2010 death of a teenage Lamb of God fan, adding that Blythe's actions didn't constitute a crime. The state attorney, who had sought a conviction for manslaughter and asked for the minimum sentence of five years, has appealed the decision.
Czech news site Novinky.cz is reporting that the State Attorney’s Office in Prague, Czech Republic, has officially indicted Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe on the manslaughter charge led to his imprisonment in the Czech Republic earlier this year.
American heavy metal giants Lamb Of God have been through a lot during the past couple of months, and it's been well documented. Thankfully, things have been sorted for the time being, and the band is gearing up for an extensive U.S. headline tour with support from In Flames, Hatebreed and Sylosis, starting October 30 in Phoenix, Arizona, followed by a Halloween-night show in Los Angeles and set to go well into December.
Lamb of God were set to kick off a headlining tour back in early August which would have seen them on the road with Gojira and Dethklok, but after singer Randy Blythe spent over a month in prison in the Czech Republic, the band understandably had to cancel the planned dates.
Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe is now safe at home in the United States after spending nearly five weeks in a Czech prison. Blythe was arrested on charges related to an incident that took place in 2010, in which a fan was allegedly pushed from the stage by Blythe, resulting in injuries that ultimately proved fatal.
At long last, Lamb of God frontman has been released on bail after spending nearly five weeks in a prison in the Czech Republic. The singer is currently on his way back to the U.S., where he will rejoin his band on stage before the end of the month.
