Virginia's heavy metal champions Lamb of God are preparing to unleash a brand new bone-crushing onslaught. The group's album "Resolution" is scheduled for a Jan. 24 release. The band will kick off a new tour in their hometown of Richmond on Jan. 22.
That show will take place at The National. Advance tickets are $20.
There is a Peninsula connection with Lamb of God, by the way. Guitarist Mark Morton, from Williamsburg, is part of the group.
Here's a press release about the band's activities.
