LAMB OF GOD have announced the release of their new album, “Omens“, on October 7 via Epic Records. The first single from the record, titled “Nevermore”, will arrive on Friday, June 10.

Densely muscular, soaked in unnerving spite, with a pessimistic eye toward inner struggles and global affairs alike, “Omens” is a furious entry in the LAMB OF GOD catalog, perhaps the band’s angriest album yet.

“The world is crazy and keeps changing. ‘Omens‘ is a reaction to the state of the world,” explains vocalist D. Randall Blythe. “It’s a very pissed-off record.” He pauses for emphasis. “It is extremely pissed off.”

Omens” is also LAMB OF GOD‘s most diverse affair. The band tracked with longtime collaborator Josh Wilbur (KORN, MEGADETH) live in the room together at Henson Recording Studios (formerly A&M Studios) in Los Angeles, California, a location that birthed classics from THE DOORS, PINK FLOYD, RAMONES and SOUNDGARDEN, among others.

“The inner workings of the band have never been better,” explains guitarist Mark Morton. “You can hear it in ‘Omens‘. You can see it in our performances, and if you’re around us for five minutes, you can feel it.”

The “Omens” album pre-order is live now at Lamb-Of-God.com, boasting several exclusive items, including a signed colored vinyl variant, shirt, hoodie, and signed CDs with an alternate color cover. All physical CD and vinyl releases will include a free access code to watch the livestream viewing of “The Making Of Omens” documentary, which will premiere the week of album release.

LAMB OF GOD’s “Omens” track listing:

01. Nevermore
02. Vanishing
03. To The Grave
04. Ditch
05. Omens
06. Gomorrah
07. Ill Designs
08. Grayscale
09. Denial Mechanism
10. September Song

LAMB OF GOD will support the new album with a massive Live Nation-produced U.S. headlining tour featuring special guests KILLSWITCH ENGAGE on all dates. Different legs will also see support from BARONESS, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, SPIRITBOX, ANIMALS AS LEADERS as well as SUICIDE SILENCE and FIT FOR AN AUTOPSY. The tour kicks off September 9 in Brooklyn and runs through October 20. Tickets go on sale starting Friday, June 10 at 10 a.m. local time on lamb-of-god.com.

Mark Morton said: “Two decades ago, LAMB OF GOD, along with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, were a part of a new wave of American heavy metal music. Our scene grew from a small, loosely connected network of underground shows in basements and warehouses, into a global phenomenon that helped define an entire generation of modern heavy metal. We are thrilled to announce the ‘Omens‘ tour, which celebrates not only the perseverance and impact of that original movement, but also the creativity and originality of the bands that it influenced. Heavy metal is alive and well. The ‘Omens’ tour proudly showcases the depth and diversity of our scene. This is not a tour to miss.”
