Lamb of God Announce New Album 'Omens,' Plot North American Tour with Killswitch Engage

Baroness, Suicide Silence, Motionless in White, Fit for an Autopsy, Spiritbox and Animals as Leaders will join on select dates

Lamb of God have announced plans for a new album titled Omens — arriving October 7 via Epic Records — and a sprawling North American tour in support of the album kicking off in September.

Tracked live at Henson Recording Studios in Los Angeles, Omens finds the band joining forces once again with producer Josh Wilbur. The 10-track record is described by vocalist D. Randall Blythe as "a reaction to the state of the world," and "a very pissed-off record."

The ensuing tour will see support from a massive roster of contemporaries, with Killswitch Engage joining (almost) the entirety of the trek alongside Baroness, Suicide Silence, Motionless in White, Fit for an Autopsy, Spiritbox and Animals as Leaders on select dates. The trek plots a lone Canadian stop in Vancouver on October 9.

"Two decades ago, Lamb of God, along with Killswitch Engage, were a part of a new wave of American heavy metal music," guitarist Mark Morton said of the band's tourmates. "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.

He added: "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."

Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, June 10, at 10 a.m. local time here after a run of various presales.
