Lamb of God Cancel Tour
Release of Randy Blythe from prison still uncertain

Nearly one month after the arrest and incarceration of singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic for manslaughter stemming from an onstage incident in 2010, Lamb of God has found out the hard way just how complicated it is to post bail and be released from prison in the Eastern European country. So the news today of the cancellation of Lamb of God's big summer North American tour comes as no real surprise. Here's the official statement from the band:
Due to the continued incarceration of Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band’s co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy’s release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy’s release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.
Lamb of God wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no Lamb of God.
