In March, LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton has confirmed to SiriuxXM‘s “Trunk Nation” that he and his bandmates have been working on new material for their upcoming studio album.
“We’re writing,” he said. “We’ve got a bunch of new material coming together. Lots of new song ideas. We’ve been kind of in and out of studio doing pre-production, just songwriting. And there’s a lot of new material.”
He continued: “It feels good. It sounds like LAMB OF GOD. And we’ve got Randy [Blythe, LAMB OF GOD singer] on some stuff now, and it just sounds like fresh, new LAMB OF GOD. It’s exciting. And we’ve got some touring coming up with LAMB too — we’re doing three weeks back on the SLAYER tour in North America in May, and then we’re gonna take a little quick break and then head over to Europe and do some festivals over there. So [it will be] a busy year.”
Asked if LAMB OF GOD is planning on releasing its new album this year, Morton said: “It would be cool if it did, but right now, I’m just in such a creative mode, we all wanna make sure it’s something really exciting and something fresh and it is what it needs to be. So I’m less concerned with the timeline and more concerned [with] the material. But it is possible. I wouldn’t rule it out.”
