Randy Blythe has confirmed that Lamb of God are set to take a break.
â€œAnd so another album cycle comes to an end,â€ blogs the man via Instagram. â€œThis has been a very eventful, at times VERY STRESSFUL, album cycle, & itâ€™s been about three years since we started on this one in our practice space- I need a break. Tomorrow is a 19 hour flight back to the USA, & then another one home to RVA, & except for two festival shows in 2014, I will not be thinking about lamb of god, touring, playing heavy metal, writing new lamb of god material- NONE OF THAT STUFF- AT ALL- for a good long while.
â€œTime to do other things for a bit, & let my brain regroup, & be a somewhat normal human being. This has been a pretty wild ride though, & to end it in AFRICA of all places still amazes the crap outta me. So thanks Johannesburg for an awesome end to the Resolution tour cycle, & to all you other bands, hear this: the game has been stepped up, & the ante has risen. You are not a REAL G until you come to South Africa & your fans throw one of THESE to you on stage- a warthog skull. Takes the cake for the strangest thing throw at me on stage ever, & Iâ€™ve had some weird shit thrown at me- I named him Jeff. Jeff, the South African warthog. Top that, yâ€™all. Donâ€™t front like your ballinâ€™ if you ainâ€™t rockinâ€™ that wart hog shizzy.
â€œI figured Iâ€™d finish up the cycle with a nice self-portrait. Me & Jeff are outty. Peace, & one love. â€“ Randyâ€
