See Lamb of God’s Mark Morton Break Down New Album’s Cover Art

Virginian metal powerhouse Lamb of God are gearing up to release their highly anticipated new self-titled album on May 8th via Epic Records, and today (April 3rd) they’ve offered up a video featuring guitarist and songwriter Mark Morton discussing the cover art of said record, which features a moody image of broken pocket watches. The LP — which includes the already released singles “Checkmate” and ” Memento Mori” — will be the long-running band’s first with new full-time drummer Art Cruz (Winds of Plague, Prong), who officially replaced Chris Adler last year after the founding member’s surprise split with the group.

Lamb of God’s big spring European tour with Kreator and Power Trip was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but as of now, the quintet still plan to tour North America later this year with Megadeth, Trivium and In Flames. You can see the full routing for that massive multi-legged jaunt below.
