Randy Blythe: directing the masses

Lamb Of God kicked off their UK tour at the Southampton Guildhall last night (Sunday Jan 12). 

Here’s what Randy and the boys played (don’t look below unless you want a very strong indication of what they’ll be dropping when they come your way later this week):

Ghost Walking
Walk with Me in Hell
Set to Fail
Now You’ve Got Something to Die For
The Undertow
In Your Words
Laid to Rest
Black Label

Lamb Of God recently confirmed that guitarist Mark Morton would be sitting out the band’s full European tour due to “family issues”.

“[Paul Waggoner], who plays guitar in the amazing Between The Buried And Me, will be fulfilling stage-left guitar duty this tour,” Randy Blythe commented via Instagram. “Regrettably, Mark Morton has to stay at home this run due to a family emergency. Lamb Of God has had a pretty rough time with this lately, as both John [Campbell, bass] and one of our crew members (who might as well be band members) had to unexpectedly leave our last tour for the same exact reason.

“Mark is doing just fine, he’s OK, but when these things arise, we have no choice but to cancel tour or get a fill-in. Life happens, as regrettably a lot of my friends have found out recently. 2014 has started out pretty stressfully for a lot of people I know, but you soldier on and get through it.

“As I stated when John had to split last tour, family absolutely comes first with the members of this band, so when one of us needs to stay at home to be with his family, that’s what happens — no questions asked, we just say, ‘OK, bro, stay home and handle your business,’ and we don’t answer questions by ANYONE about personal family business, so don’t bother asking me why Mark isn’t here — just know that he is OK and needs to be with his family right now.”
