Lamb Of God Announce New Album ‘Omens,’ U.S. Tour With Killswitch Engage


Lamb of God have announced their ninth studio album, titled Omens. The band also announced a U.S. headlining tour this fall in support of the album along with Killswitch Engage.

Omens, set to drop on October 7th, is a follow up to 2020’s self-titled album.

“The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world,” said Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe of the upcoming album. “It’s a very pissed-off record . It is extremely pissed-off.”

The album’s first single, “Nevermore,” will drop this Friday, June 10.

“The Omens Tour” will kicks off on September 9 in Brooklyn, New York, and runs through October 20 in Irving, Texas. Besides Killswitch Engage, the trek will feature several openers, including Baroness, Suicide Silence, Motionless in White, Fit for an Autopsy, Spiritbox, and Animals as Leaders.

Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 10 at 10 a.m. local time.

“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,” guitarist Mark Mortonsaid in a statement.
