Now that frontman Randy Blythe has put his Czech Republic legal problems behind him, Lamb Of God gets down to some serious touring biz as the band books a road trip hitting several secondary markets, and announces its “Metal On The Mountain” retreat.
The band’s Czech legal dilemma had its roots in a 2010 performance at Prague’s Abaton club. When the band returned to Prague for a concert the following year, Blythe was accused of having pushed a 19-year-old man from the Abaton stage who later died from a head injury. Earlier this month, Prague’s Municipal Court cleared Blythe of all charges.
Now it’s time to tour, tour and tour, with Lamb Of God targeting several secondary markets, those cities tour buses often pass while traveling from major market A to major market B.
