Lamb of God Album Details Announced

Lamb of God will release their fifth studio album, Wrath, on February 24th, 2009. The record will be released in North America by Epic and will be the first release with their new label Roadrunner outside of North America. Wrath is produced by Josh Wilbur and was recorded in studios in New York, Virginia, and New Hampshire.

Lamb of God finished the touring cycle on the Grammy nominated album Sacrament at the end of 2007. The two-year trek was documented in the now certified Gold DVD Walk with Me in Hell and culminated with the band headlining arenas across the U.S. last December.

The band has taken the entirety of 2008 off the road to focus on the writing process for Wrath.

“This album is going to surprise a lot of people,” says drummer Chris Adler. “Typically bands that get to where we are in our career begin to slack off, smell the roses and regurgitate. We chose a different path. No one wants to hear another band member hyping a new record. Wrath needs no hype. We have topped ourselves, and on February 24th, you will feel it.”

As always, Lamb of God will embark on an extensive tour that will cover the globe. As previously announced, the band will be supporting Metallica on the December leg of their tour. The first leg of the Wrath world tour will start in Finland on February 6th and will encompass dates in the U.K., Australia, and Japan.
