LAMB OF GOD Give Special 'Sacrament' To Fans On This Summer's UNHOLY ALLIANCE TOUR

LAMB OF GOD and Revolver magazine have announced a series of special backstage fan-only listening events of LOG's highly anticipated album "Sacrament", due out August 22 on Epic. When this summer's Unholy Alliance Tour with SLAYER kicks off on June 15 at The Tweeter Center in Camden, NJ, a limited number of fans wearing a LAMB OF GOD t-shirt and carrying the official Revolver tour program will be picked out of line and taken back stage to meet the band and listen to new tracks from "Sacrament".

Produced by Machine (CLUTCH, KING CRIMSON, PITCHSHIFTER, 18 VISIONS, EVERY TIME I DIE) "Sacrament"'s first single, "Redneck", will hit radio this summer. Plans exist for the band to film a video for the song with director Bill Fishman (EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, GOOD CHARLOTTE).

LAMB OF GOD began recording "Sacrament" on April 3 in New York with producer Machine (BLOODSIMPLE, WHITE ZOMBIE), who also helmed the group's 2004 effort, "Ashes of the Wake".

In a recent interview with MTV.com, LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton had the following to say about the upcoming CD, "The music's influenced by what the five of us are listening to, what we're writing about, the context in which we're writing, our lives and our experiences," he explained. "We made a deliberate effort not to be so politically motivated this time. We still care about and think about those things, but at this point, creatively, we wanted to step out of that for a moment, and address some other things. So the lyrics are more introspective and more personal, and I think just about anybody will relate to them. Not everybody pays attention to the war or politics."
