LAMB OF GOD Bassist Forced To Leave Tour; FEAR FACTORY's MATT DEVRIES Steps In

Bassist John Campbell of Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD has been forced to leave the band's current North American tour due to a family emergency. His temporary replacement is Matt DeVries (FEAR FACTORY, ex-CHIMAIRA).

DeVries made his live debut with LAMB OF GOD Tuesday night (November 12) in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He will play three more shows with LAMB OF GOD in Canada before heading out on tour with FEAR FACTORY as the support act for MEGADETH.

Says DeVries: "[I am] stoked and honored to be out on such an incredible tour with some great friends."

Remaining LAMB OF GOD shows featuring Matt DeVries on bass:

Nov. 14 - Edmonton, AB @ Shaw Conference Centre
Nov. 15 - Calgary, AB @ Big Four
Nov. 16 - Saskatoon, SK @ Saskatoon Prairieland Park

LAMB OF GOD canceled this past Monday night's (November 11) concert at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington due to Campbell's family emergency.

The band's North American co-headlining tour with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE kicked off on October 22 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is scheduled to conclude on November 26 in Silver Spring, Maryland.

LAMB OF GOD has just released a special 10th-anniversary edition of its "As The Palaces Burn" album.
