NEWS: Lamb Of God and Kreator join forces for “State Of Unrest”!
They say that to expect the unexpected shows a thoroughly modern intellect but the last thing we expected was a new single that finds members of German Thrash Metal legends Kreator joining forces with members of Lamb Of God ahead of the bands co-headlining “State Of Unrest” European tour trek that goes by the same name…
The press statement reads: “Ahead of their imminent and long awaited State of Unrest tour together, metal titans Lamb Of God and Kreator have a special surprise for fans, releasing the blistering joint single ‘State of Unrest’ on February 10th, 2023.
When the initial State of Unrest tour was postponed in March 2020 due to the global pandemic, Mark Morton (Lamb Of God) and Mille Petrozza (Kreator) connected and began working on a song together. After the music was completed, they enlisted Riley Gale (Power Trip) to sing the vocal. Power Trip was intended to be the original opening band of the State of Unrest tour. Tragically, Riley Gale passed away in August 2020 before he was able to record his vocal on the song.
After the further postponement of the State of Unrest tour, Lamb Of God and Kreator came together to finish and record the song with D. Randall Blythe (Lamb Of God) and Mille Petrozza on vocals. Proceeds from the single will be donated to Dallas Hope Charities in Riley Gale’s name, an organisation he was involved with and cared deeply about
The State of Unrest tour begins February 15th in Munich, Germany and closes in the UK at London’s OVO Wembley Arena on March 21st”
