LAMB OF GOD Unable To Make Ecuador Concert

Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD regret to inform their fans in Ecuador that they will not be able to perform at tonight's (Friday, October 1) Quito Fest. The LAMB OF GOD bandmembers were at the airport last night when their flight — and all flights — to Ecuador were canceled due to the attempt to overthrow the Ecuadorian government. LAMB OF GOD hopes the unrest will come to a quick end and would like to assure its fans that it will be back.

LAMB OF GOD recently released the "Hourglass" collection, a career-retrospective set that is available in seven different configurations.

LAMB OF GOD received a second Grammy Award nomination in the "Best Metal Performance" category — for the track "Set to Fail" from its latest album, "Wrath", which came out last year on Epic Records.

The band was previously nominated in the "Best Metal Performance" category for the song "Redneck" from LAMB OF GOD's 2006 album "Sacrament".

"Wrath" landed at position No. 2 on The Billboard 200 chart back in February 2009 with first-week sales of over 67,000 copies.
