Lamb Of God have today announced that the release of their upcoming self titled album will be pushed back to 19 June, although a new single ‘New Colossal Hate’ will be out this Thursday.
A statement read: “Regrettably, we have to announce that the release date for our upcoming self-titled album is being moved five weeks, to 19 June. We’re in extraordinary times due to the current global reality and the delay of shipments of all-but essential goods needed in the fight against COVID-19. After talks with our labels, there is no other option than to delay the release so that fans who pre-ordered the album can receive the record they paid for.
“We appreciate your patience during these times – a global pandemic is not something people in the music industry usually take into account when scheduling album releases, but as you know, this thing has affected everyone across the board, and we are no exception.
“We will, however, be releasing a new song, ‘New Colossal Hate’, this Thursday, 23 April and plan to release a fourth song from the album before the full album is released in June.
“Thank you for your understanding.
“Wash your damn hands, let us know what you think of the new tunes, and see you on the road sometime!” – LAMB OF GOD
