Lamb of God announce new album and massive North American trek with Killswitch Engage and a rotating roster of heavy music elite

Posted by Ramon Gonzales in News on June 6, 2022

The ‘Omens’ Tour coincides with the October album release and includes supporting slots from Baroness, Motionless In White, Spiritbox, Animals As Leaders, Suicide Silence and Fit For An Autopsy.

Groove metal titans Lamb of God have announced the mammoth full-up their universally celebrated self-titled studio album with the confirmation of their ninth full length offensive, Omens. Still steamrolling the current landscape of heavy music with anthems from their 2020 studio release, the band has returned with another 10-track onslaught intent on further asserting why Lamb of God continues to perform at their pinnacle.

Omens // Lamb of God

Set for an October 7th arrival date, the album Omens will coincide with the band’s biggest headlining trek to date with a sprawling 26-date North American engagement in The Omens Tour. Teaming with fellow genre stalwarts Killswitch Engage, the tandem will mark a full circle moment for American metal music more than twenty years in the making.

Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton explains the importance of the tour’s powerful pairing. “Two decades ago, Lamb of God, along with Killswitch Engage, were a part of a new wave of American heavy metal music. Our scene grew from a small, loosely connected network of underground shows in basements and warehouses, into a global phenomenon that helped define an entire generation of modern heavy metal.”

Morton continued, “We are thrilled to announce The Omens Tour, which celebrates not only the perseverance and impact of that original movement, but also the creativity and originality of the bands that it influenced. Heavy metal is alive and well. The Omens Tour proudly showcases the depth and diversity of our scene. This is not a tour to miss.” 

In addition to the Omens Tour’s impactful one-two, the stretch of dates celebrates the robust health of heavy music with rotating roster of genre elite helming the run’s supporting spots. Various dates of the tour will feature performances from Baroness, Motionless In White, Spiritbox, Animals As Leaders, Suicide Silence and Fit For An Autopsy.

Loaded with scathing social commentary and backed by the band’s compositional enormity, Omens is already being characterized as Lamb of God’s most confrontational album of their illustrious career. Set to unveil the album’s first preview on Friday June 10th with “Nevermore” vocalist D. Randall Blythe offered a simple explanation as to what fans can expect from the latest document.  “The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world. It’s a very pissed-off record.” (pauses for effect)“It is extremely pissed-off.”
