Back with a crushing anthem, LAMB OF GOD unleash a brand-new single entitled ‚Evidence‘. The GRAMMY® Award-nominated metal titans originally recorded the song during the sessions for their acclaimed 2022 opus and ninth full-length LP, Omens. They’ve uncovered it in honor of the latter’s one-year anniversary today.

Regarding the single, vocalist Randy Blythe shared, “One of the more baffling aspects of modern day life is the conscious rejection of empirical facts in favor of Internet echo chamber emotional security blankets. Truth is not subjective, no matter how uncomfortable that makes some people. Art is though, so enjoy the song, however you may choose to interpret it.”
Exploding as a signature LAMB OF GOD pit-starter, ‚Evidence‘ barges in with a pummeling polyrhythmic groove fortified by airtight riffing. Against this backdrop, Blythe’s apocalyptic observations cut deep as he muses, “The road to hell is paved with bad concessions,” before repeating on the refrain, “The body politic has decomposed.” It culminates on one last burst of cathartic energy baptized in distortion and venomous screams.
Alongside the new single, tomorrow LAMB OF GOD will share their Making Of: Omens documentary wide for the first on the actual one-year anniversary mark of the album. Initially released last year on-demand for a limited one-month release alongside physical CD and Vinyl merch bundles, this marks the wide-release of the inside look at the process of writing and recording the metal icons celebrated ninth album.
LAMB OF GOD just concluded a busy summer. They supported Pantera on the legendary band’s first headline tour since 2001, performing to sold out amphitheaters and sheds on a nightly basis. In between, they concurrently packed venues on their own headline jaunt across North America.
2022’s Omens notably marked the band’s sixth consecutive Top 15 debut on the Billboard 200 in addition to capturing #1 on the Top Hard Rock Albums Chart, #3 on the Top Album Sales Chart, #3 on the Top Rock Albums Chart, and #5 on the Top Vinyl Albums Chart. Not to mention, it has amassed an unprecedented 60 million streams and counting.
