Lamb of God Announce Summer North American Tour with Dethklok, Gojira

Lamb of God Announce Summer North American Tour with Dethklok, Gojira
Longtime thrashers and recent Exclaim! cover stars Lamb of God released their seventh full-length Resolution, their "most musically ambitious to date," this past winter, but the Richmond, VA metal vets will tear up the new tunes in the sweatiest of conditions on their upcoming North American summer tour.

The eight-week adventure kicks off in Seattle August 1, but the band will head up north the next night to start a string of shows in Canada that will take them from Vancouver out to their appearances at both Heavy TO and Heavy MTL. The act will dip back into the U.S. for the remaining dates, which you can see in the tour itinerary down below.

Lamb of God will also bring some headbanging buddies along with them in the form of animated band Dethklok and French progressive metal combo Gojira.

As Blabbermouth reports, Dethklok leader Brendan Small is in the middle of writing and recording a third studio album for his animated outfit, represented onscreen as the dysfunctional rockers from Adult Swim's Metalocalypse and onstage with music vets like Strapping Young Lad drummer Gene Hoglan. The as-yet-untitled LP should arrive later this year.
