Lamb Of God singer Randy Blythe and guitarist Mark Morton were interviewed on the Swiss TV show “Living Room” on Joiz TV prior to the band’s June 11 performance at the Greenfield festival in Interlaken, Switzerland. You can now watch the chat below.
Speaking about the title of Lamb Of God‘s new album, “VII: Sturm Und Drang“, Morton said: “When Randy and I were putting the lyrics together for this album, we were discussing what the themes were. And we were trying to find a phrase that best encompassed the common threads that ran through the lyrics of all the songs. And it just happened to be that ‘Sturm Und Drang’ represented that inner conflict and the pressure and the turmoil and the chaos and how one responds to those things. If it had been a French phrase, we would have probably named it that. But it just happened to be German.”
“VII: Sturm Und Drang” will be released on July 24 via via Epic in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Entertainment, with whom the band signed a record deal for all territories outside of North America. The CD was once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, California.
The album’s first single, “Still Echoes“, was made available on May 18 via all digital retailers and streaming services.
Lamb Of God has announced the variety of bundle options available for the pre-order of “VII: Sturm Und Drang“. They range from the “everything bundle” (including the deluxe CD or LP, a 7″ vinyl single of bonus tracks, a signed album art lithography, a t-shirt, hoodie, cassette and sticker set and retails for $175) to the standard digital download (which retails for $11.98).
