Lamb Of God
After a successful premier run on Warped Tour 2007, Killswitch Engage recently released As Daylight Dies Special Edition, a CD/DVD combo featuring the MySpace video favorite and current Active Rock hit “Holy Diver.” The special edition also features previous unreleased studio tracks and full music videos for “My Curse,” “The Arms of Sorrow” and of course “Holy Diver.” Poised to conquer, this tour will bring the band full circle — honoring the metal fans that have been with them from the start and have helped them gain such notable success.
Lamb of God will be wrapping up the Sacrament album cycle with this tour. After 18 months of touring with Slayer, Megadeth, Ozzfest, Heaven and Hell, and headlining runs in the US, Japan, Australia, UK and Europe, Lamb of God will take 2008 off to prepare for a new CD. Fans will get a new dose of Lamb of God in 2008 with a full length DVD, set for release in the spring. The DVD will document the entire Sacrament experience, beginning with rehearsals for the albums recording straight through this headline run.
Roadrunner artist, DevilDriver, will be offering direct support for the tour in support of their latest release, The Last Kind Words, which has been received with high critical and fan acclaim. Offering a melting pot of metallic influences, DevilDriver deliver a binding mix of jarring drums, grinding guitars, and unmistakably brutal vocals by front man Dez Fafara. Also joining the tour will be Swedish melodic metal masters, Soilwork, who will be releasing their new album Sworn to a Great Divide on October 19th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Take a break from the holiday melee to witness the sheer metal madness of Lamb of God and Killswitch Engage united. “Yes the rumors are true, Killswitch and Lamb of God are back together again” Killswitch vocalist Howard Jones affirms. “We had our honeymoon four years ago and now it’s time to renew our metal vows. This is your official invitation - the only one you will ever need.” Chris Adler from Lamb of God adds “Touring the Sacrament album has been some of the most exciting times we have ever experienced. It has taken us around the world several times over, playing the biggest shows of our career with some of the best bands in the business and in front of the greatest fans in the world. We are tighter, stronger and smarter than we have ever been and before we put the machine that is Lamb of God to bed for a little while and call an end to the touring cycle, we want to bring it to the next level. So together with our true friends in Killswitch, DevilDriver and Soilwork we plan to bring you something that won’t be forgotten. Thanks to everyone who has supported us and we are looking forward to one more brutal evening with all of you!!!”
