We’re having to wait a tiny little bit longer to hear Lamb Of God’s upcoming record as their self-titled release has been pushed back to June 2020.
The record’s release date has been pushed back due to shipping issues with Coronavirus meaning that postal services are prioritising essential goods over anything else. As a result of this, physical records are understandably subject to delay where Lamb Of God have decided to push back the release date in order to ensure those who pre-ordered the record receive theirs on time.
In a statement made by the band, they have said:
“Regrettably, we have to announce that the release date for our upcoming self-titled album is being moved five weeks, to June 19. We’re in extraordinary times due to the current global reality and the delay of shipments of all-but essential goods needed in the fight against COVID-19. After talks with our labels, there is no other option than to delay the release so that fans who pre-ordered the album can receive the record they paid for.
“We appreciate your patience during these times – a global pandemic is not something people in the music industry usually take into account when scheduling album releases, but as you know, this thing has affected everyone across the board, and we are no exception,” they continue, adding that a brand-new song, New Colossal Hate, will be coming out this Thursday, April 23.
In addition, the band will release a fourth track from the record before its release.
“Thank you for your understanding,” they add. “Wash your damn hands, let us know what you think of the new tunes, and see you on the road sometime!”
