In the wake of his release from prison in Prague, Randy Blythe and Lamb of God have announced that they will be playing Knotfest, the two-date metal and hard rock festival headlined and organized by Slipknot. Playing both dates (Aug. 17 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and Aug. 18 in Somerset, Wis.), these will be Lamb of God’s first live performances since Blythe’s imprisonment.

Knotfest organizers are understandably excited for the news, saying, “We are honored to present Lamb of God and thrilled to learn that Randy will be onstage for what is sure to be an amazing moment at Knotfest.”

Although Lamb of God recently canceled their tour with Dethklok and Gojira, there are already plans for a fall tour. While dates and cities have not yet been released, the band is planning to hit the road as soon as Oct. 26. According to the band’s publicist, Blythe will be making a public statement about his experience in the Czech prison within the next week.

Blythe was arrested in late June in the Czech Republic on manslaughter charges that date back to an incident in 2010 where a fan apparently died of injuries sustained after allegedly being thrown off the stage at a Lamb of God show.
