LAMB OF GOD To Start Work On New Album In February

Jonathan Barkan of recently conducted an interview with drummer Chris Adler of Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD. A couple of excerpts from the chat follow below. You just recently finished the [Rockstar Energy Drink] Mayhem Festival where you were one of the headlining acts. How was the tour as a whole?

Chris: It was great! We didn't know what to expect coming in. In fact, when we first signed up for it, we were slightly hesitant, just because with the bands that were on it; we didn't know if our fans would really appreciate us doing a tour with some of those bands. Not to say that I don't like those bands, they're fine! But our audiences are not necessarily the same. But what we learned was that the tickets were cheap, some of our good friends were on the second stage, so we didn't think anybody would really complain about the deal, when it came down. And also what we figured out, kinda early on, was that even though we wouldn't normally play with KORN or ROB ZOMBIE, that a lot of the people who like those bands, the people that are coming to see them, may never have seen a band as heavy as LAMB OF GOD and we may be able to turn on some of those people to something a little more on the dark side. And I think it worked! I think the tour went great! We played the small shows, which was like 16,000 people, so we had a great opportunity to spread the word if you will. You've got tour dates lined up in South America as well as dates with METALLICA again later this year. What other tour plans have you got in the works?

Chris: Well, we've been out since December of 2008 and the longest we've been home is three weeks since then. So, we're going to end in December of 2010, which would make it a full two-year touring cycle, which a lot of bands don't get to do these days really. We're very lucky that people want us to come around that much. So that's it! Mayhem was our last U.S. run. We're going to take the month of January off, see if we can reconnect with our family, see what that life looks like [laughs]. Then maybe we'll get together and start writing a new album! So there are tentative plans to approach a new album in the beginning of next year?

Chris: Yeah! Actually one of our guitar players, Mark [Morton], has like seven or eight demos he has put together on his own. Willie [Adler], the other guitar player, has three or four as well. February, we'll put our heads together and see if we can mash those into something special.
