Lamb of God and Dethklok have canceled their upcoming tour due to Randy Blythe’s current incarceration in the Czech Republic

Some sad news for metal fans today. Due to the current incarceration of Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the metallers’ co-headlining tour with Dethklok that was set to launch off Aug. 1 in Seattle is being cancelled. According to the band’s management, the group regrets the decision, but the fact Blythe is still being incarcerated makes it too difficult to carry on with the tour.  After Blythe is officially released, the band intends to rebook a tour in the fall and also take part in the upcoming Mayhem Cruise in December.

“Lamb of God wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour,” Lamb of God said in an official statement. “Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no Lamb of God.”

Dethklok and Adult Swim also issued a statement regarding the upcoming tour:

“In light of circumstances beyond our control, the upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour has been canceled. Refunds will be available to customers who already purchased tickets through their point of purchase. We thank Dethklok fans for their continued support and look forward to releasing information about the band’s upcoming third album and a planned fall tour in the coming weeks.”
