Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe Says New Material ‘Sounds Pretty Monstrous So Far’
We always love hearing from Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe, and in a new interview with Noisey, he spoke about what he's been up to lately. Blythe also gave an update on the new music Lamb of God is currently writing, which he describes as "pretty monstrous."
Back in November, Lamb of God tweeted the cryptic message: "Something is happening … lamb-of-god.com". The people at Mesa Engineering went on to state that "Lamb of God is in the midst of writing material for their new album!"
In Randy Blythe's new Noisey interview, the vocalist confirms that Lamb of God is writing. “Lamb of God is playing a bunch of big gigs this year, and sooner or later we’ll write an album," Blythe begins. "What the guys have been writing sounds pretty monstrous thus far."
Blythe continues to speak on Lamb of God's plans. "In the immediate we’re going to Soundwave in Australia in February, which will be warm and awesome," he says. "It’ll be our third Soundwave. Going to Indonesia after that for a few days, hopefully I’ll get some time to surf. We’ll be doing some bigger gigs in the summer too. We had to take some time off because the tour cycle took about three years, like writing recording touring, and then I got arrested."
He adds, "The whole legal thing took over a year of my life, during which we toured in the States and afterwards we finished up the touring cycle. It was a rough, rough year so thank god it’s behind me. So we got done touring South Africa in January and I started working on my book, which should come out sometime in 2015, it’s being edited now. It’s a book called 'Dark Days,' which is basically about what happened over in the Czech Republic. My editor sent me back the manuscript, so I have to approve edit that by January. So that should be out sometime in the summer maybe, not sure how long it’s gonna take."
Head over to Noisey to check out the full interview and stay tuned as Lamb of God reveal more on their upcoming album.
