LAMB OF GOD, AS I LAY DYING, CHILDREN OF BODOM To Team Up For North American Tour

Fresh off of their West Coast run with METALLICA and upcoming visits to Finland, U.K., Ireland, Australia, Japan, and Indonesia, Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD have teamed up with No Fear Energy for the North American tour in support of their fifth studio album, "Wrath", which will be released in North America by Epic Records on February 24 (the CD will be issued in other territories through Roadrunner Records). The tour commences in Phoenix, Arizona on April 2 and covers 35 markets in the US and Canada, ending in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on May 15.

"No Fear Energy is excited to be working with LAMB OF GOD, Live Nation and the solid lineup of support bands for this upcoming tour," says No Fear's Vice President Of Marketing, Britt Galland. "The music on this tour fits perfectly into the no-holds-barred lifestyle of those who buy No Fear Energy drinks and gravitate toward the action-sports properties associated with the No Fear brand image. We're anticipating another popular metal tour, along with some unique product promotions and contests."

LAMB OF GOD has put together one of the strongest bills to come out of the metal community in recent times. AS I LAY DYING and CHILDREN OF BODOM are the main support acts on the tour, with the opening slot rotating between GOD FORBID and MUNICIPAL WASTE. LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler comments: "I cannot wait to begin the first North American run of the 'Wrath' world tour. The package we have lined up is guaranteed to leave sore necks and broken eardrums across the country. If you are into metal, there is something here for everyone, this is not a tour to miss. We are working up one hell of a show and can't wait to play the new material."
