It’s a shame that some bands got their tours and shows canceled in 2020 due to COVID-19; for Lamb of God, it’s a fucking tragedy. The Richmond band’s live show is an experience unlike any other, and given that they released their self-titled album this year, one was ready for some primo carnage. Now, the band are giving fans the next best thing: two livestreamed events, with both their new album and their 2004 album Ashes of the Wake, played in full.
The first stream is scheduled for Friday, September 18, and will feature Lamb of God perform songs from their latest self-titled album, released June 19 via Epic Records, live for the very first time. The second stream on Friday, September 25, will see the band will perform their massive 2004 anti-George W. Bush album Ashes of the Wake in its entirety for the first time ever. Both sets will feature encores, including fan favorites as well as songs that haven’t been performed in years.
The streams are scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. EDT/2 p.m. PDT on their respective days. Livestream tickets will be $15 per show or, for a limited time, $20 for both shows and are on-sale now via the band’s live site.
A pre-show is scheduled to begin at 4 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. PDT before each stream, hosted by Jose Mangin, featuring exclusive interviews with members of the band and opening sets from Bleed From Within (September 18) and Whitechapel (September 25). Bleed from Within will be airing a brand new full production 30 minute set and Whitechapel will air their memorable 2014 hometown performance from Knoxville, TN.
More information on these events can be found at the band’s live site.
