Lamb Of God's 'Resolution' tour is over now and Randy Blythe has revealed that he needs a break from music and that he "will not be thinking about Lamb Of God, touring, playing Heavy Metal [or] writing new Lamb Of God material" for a long time.

'Resolution' turned two years old on January 23rd and during that time, Randy spent nine months of his life fighting controversial manslaughter charges after a fan passed away, allegedly suffering a head injury during a Lamb Of God show that would prove fatal.

Randy had the blame pinned on him and spendt over a month in a Czech prison before his bail was accepted. He was eventually found not guilty and now, after completing the 'Resolution' tour cycle with a gig in Johannesburg, South Africa, Randy took to his Instagram and announced his desire for some downtime.

Randy's statement reads: "And so another album cycle comes to an end. This has been a very eventful, at times VERY STRESSFUL, album cycle, & it's been about three years since we started on this one in our practice space - I need a break.

"Tomorrow is a 19 hour flight back to the USA, & then another one home to RVA, & except for two festival shows in 2014, I will not be thinking about lamb of god, touring, playing heavy metal, writing new lamb of god material- NONE OF THAT STUFF- AT ALL- for a good long while.

"Time to do other things for a bit, & let my brain regroup, & be a somewhat normal human being. This has been a pretty wild ride though, & to end it in AFRICA of all places still amazes the crap outta me. So thanks Johannesburg for an awesome end to the Resolution tour cycle, & to all you other bands, hear this: the game has been stepped up, & the ante has risen. You are not a REAL G until you come to South Africa & your fans throw one of THESE to you on stage- a warthog skull.

"Takes the cake for the strangest thing throw at me on stage ever, & I've had some weird shit thrown at me- I named him Jeff. Jeff, the South African warthog. Top that, y'all. Don't front like your ballin' if you ain't rockin' that wart hog shizzy. I figured I'd finish up the cycle with a nice self-portrait [above]. Me & Jeff are outty. Peace, & one love."
