As GuitarWorld.com reported yesterday, Malaysia's Department of Islamic Development was calling upon local authorities to ban Lamb of God's September 28 performance in Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur. They labeled the band "satanic."
Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage have announced a joint fall North American tour that kicks off October 22 in Toronto. Joining them — at every show except Los Angeles — will be Testament and Huntress.
With the recent exoneration of frontman Randy Blythe of all charges in the Czech Republic, Lamb of God have announced a US tour from May 16 through June 20. The tour continues the support of the album Resolution and hits 30 markets not yet visited on the current album cycle. 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.
