LAMB OF GOD, MACHINE HEAD, TRIVIUM, GOJIRA: North American Tour Dates Announced

As BLABBERMOUTH.NET first reported on November 22, 2006, LAMB OF GOD has now officially confirmed that it will embark on a headlining American tour in 2007 with Bay Area metal titans MACHINE HEAD, modern-day metal traditionalists TRIVIUM and France's heaviest metal export GOJIRA.

Having spent the summer of 2006 on the Unholy Alliance Tour with metal pioneers SLAYER and joining MEGADETH for the Gigantour tour in September, LOG will kick off this tour in Dallas on February 16 as they bring their pummeling live show across the U.S. and Canada.

Commented LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler: "When you are a kid, you dream of playing your music in an arena. Once you've done it, you realize how much you miss the power and energy of a kick-ass club show. We've been fortunate to be playing some big places as of late, but when we started talking about a spring 2007 'Sacrament' tour, we agreed (and had heard it repeatedly over the past 2 years from the fans!!!) that it would be incredibly intense for everyone to bring the machine that is LAMB OF GOD back into the clubs. There is no comparing the connection and shared energy of a club show. The blood, sweat, and beer flying — that's a proper metal show! This is intense music for intense people — we're sick of the seats, the ushers and the lame security guards telling people to calm down!

"We probably should have left it at that, but in true LAMB OF GOD form we pushed it further. With a little help from our friends, we put an arena show bill together and told our booking agent to put it into the clubs and theaters — and oh yeah, not just any clubs — let's make sure to hit a lot of cities that normally get overlooked. Let's bring the best show we can to the people that have been left waiting for far too long. This is going to be completely out of hand and we can't fucking wait! You have been warned!!!"
