According to, LAMB OF GOD and KEEP OF KALESSIN have been confirmed for Hovefestivalen, a brand new five-day festival set to take place June 25-29 on the island of Tromøy, just outside the city of Arendal, in Norway. Also scheduled to appear are SLAYER, MASTODON, HATEBREED, NEUROSIS, SHE SAID DESTROY and DIMENSION F3H.

Hovefestivalen reportedly has the potential to become Norway's biggest festival, with up to 20,000 music fans expected to attend this year's event.

LAMB OF GOD will perform live on NBC-TV's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" on Friday, February 9. (Note: Show starts at 12:35 a.m. Friday night — technically Saturday morning).

As previously reported, LAMB OF GOD has been nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Metal Performance" category for "Redneck", the first single from their acclaimed album "Sacrament".

"Sacrament", which was produced by Machine (CLUTCH, KING CRIMSON, PITCHSHIFTER, EIGHTEEN VISIONS, EVERY TIME I DIE), has sold 185,000 copies in the United States since its August 21, 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

LAMB OF GOD will embark on a headlining American tour in February-April 2007 with modern-day metal traditionalists TRIVIUM, Bay Area metal titans MACHINE HEAD and France's heaviest metal export GOJIRA.
