Crossfire favourites Lamb Of God are releasing their new album, entitled Sacrament, on October 16th in the UK although it;s out in the US this month (August). It’s produced by Machine and will contain 11 tracks.
The first single from the album, Redneck, is available for streaming along with snippets of other tracks at www.sacrament2006.com. They are also going to tour the UK.
Mark Morton, guitarist for the band said:
“The music’s influenced by what the five of us are listening to, what we’re writing about, the context in which we’re writing, our lives and our experiences. We made a deliberate effort not to be so politically motivated this time. We still care about and think about those things, but at this point, creatively, we wanted to step out of that for a moment, and address some other things. So the lyrics are more introspective and more personal, and I think just about anybody will relate to them. Not everybody pays attention to the war or politics.”
