Today’s news should make all Lamb Of God fans very happy, for the band have just announced a brand new album, as well as a massive North American tour.

The band’s new album, titled Omens, will be arriving on October 7th. This is the band’s ninth studio album. The first single off this record, titled “Nevermore,” will be released this upcoming Friday, June 10th. Pre-orders for this album are up now via this link here.

Speaking to the aggressive presentation of Omens, Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe shares the following about the album:

“The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world. It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed-off.”

Band guitarist Mark Morton also adds the following:

“The inner workings of the band have never been better. You can hear it in Omens. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”

To also celebrate this exciting new release, the band will be embarking on a massive North American tour – bringing with them a great variety of supporting acts. Accompanying the band throughout the entire run is that of Killswitch Engage; every other supporting act will differ depending on the date of the show.

Those supporting acts happen to be: Baroness, Fit For An Autopsy, Animals As Leaders, Spiritbox, Motionless in White, and Suicide Silence. Holy shit, talk about a lineup!

Speaking to this tour with Killswitch Engage, Mark Morton shares the following:

“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. 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.”

Below you will find the following: The Omens album cover art work, the track list for Omens, and the dates for The Omens Tour. Tickets for this tour go live this upcoming Friday.

We are beyond excited for this tour and the band’s new album. Again, you can pre-order Omens now via this link here. How excited are you for Omens and The Omens Tour?
