|LAMB OF GOD has revealed plans to release a new live album, “Live In Richmond, VA”, on March 26th via Nuclear Blast.|
“Live In Richmond, VA” features the first of LAMB OF GOD‘s two ultra-successful live stream events from September 2020, in which the band performed their critically acclaimed, self-titled album Lamb Of God in full, plus an encore of four songs including “Ruin,” “Contractor,” “512,” and the debut live performance of “The Death Of Us,” a new song the band wrote and recorded in quarantine for the Bill & Ted Face The Music movie and soundtrack.
At the time, the live stream in small, 500-cap, local venue The Broadberry was described by Metal Hammer as “a storming return” and by Classic Rock as “ferociously magnificent.”
It will be available in the UK as a CD & DVD digipak, on black vinyl, on red splatter white vinyl (Nuclear Blast store exclusive), on black splatter flesh pink vinyl (Lamb Of God store exclusive), and digitally, where the live album is also bundled with the original studio release as a deluxe version.
The CD also includes two bonus tracks, “Ghost Shaped People” and “Hyperthermic / Accelerate.” The DVD includes a new director’s cut with bonus material.
Pre-orders are available now, along with new bonus track “Ghost Shaped People.”

|Guitarist Willie Adler comments, “This album is something I’m incredibly proud of. Throughout the process of writing, recording, and the subsequent filming of the live stream, I knew we were creating much more than a collection of songs. Much more than a simple streamed performance. This was focused on energy. Energy that, to me, is very tangible. And now, more than ever, in an era where human interaction is so limited, art…..be it music, visual, or otherwise, is a human connection point. And we need as much of that as possible! I hope everyone enjoys this as much as we enjoyed creating it. Thank you.”|
Originally released on June 19 last year, LAMB OF GOD’s first new album in five years was met with universal acclaim, not only among major rock journalists – which saw the band interviewed by UK broadsheet newspaper The Telegraph for the first time – but with all strata of metal fans around the world. As well as dominating the all-important US metal radio (9 weeks at #1 & a landslide of spins over the #2 spot), the album was included on many end-of-year Best Of lists, including the coveted #1 spot on Consequence of Sound’s Top 30 Metal + Hard Rock Albums of 2020.
They stated, “Along with bringing in the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, LAMB OF GOD has been one of music’s most important acts over the past 20 years. From their phenomenal instrumentation to the potency of their sociopolitical lyricism, LAMB OF GOD remain titans of the genre, continuing to craft remarkable works of thrilling and captivating adrenaline… also proves to be a profound work of heavy metal… perhaps the most important metal album of 2020. It’s not only the album of LAMB OF GOD’s career but the heavy album of the year.”
LAMB OF GOD eagerly await their return to the road ….

|“LAMB OF GOD deliver the album of their career with self-titled effort…This album isn’t just an awesome release from LAMB OF GOD, but a perfect record to unite metalheads as one.” – Consequence of Sound “There is a world-weary pessimism that permeates right to the bones of LAMB OF GOD’s breathtaking eighth LP.” – Kerrang! “The band has been vocal about the good place it’s in right now, and it shows in these songs.” – Metal Injection|
“Full of fury and rediscovered purpose, the Virginia metal titans have proven once again why they are in a league of their own.” – Rock Sound “LAMB OF GOD know, after all, that their true essence is a brutish machismo and that they are a vehicle for total catharsis.” – Rolling Stone “This is a record that’s the most authentic version of the band LAMB OF GOD want to be.” – NME “The Virginian metal stalwarts’ self-titled album – their first release with Adler’s full-time replacement Art Cruz – boasts all the neck-snapping technical riffage and burly roars we’ve come to love” – Revolver’s 25 Best Albums of 2020.
