LAMB OF GOD‘s new album, “Resolution”, will be released in North America on January 24, 2012 via Epic Records (one day earlier internationally through Roadrunner Records). The CD was recorded at various studios in Virginia and New York with producer Josh Wilbur, who worked on the band’s last effort, 2009’s “Wrath”.
“Resolution” will feature 14 songs and will come in a digipack with artwork by longtime art director Ken Adams.
The “Resolution” cover artwork can be seen below. Also available is a video trailer for the album.
Singer Randy Blythe previously described “Resolution” as “WAAAAY better than ‘Wrath’ overall.”
During its 2012 world tour, LAMB OF GOD, in connection with Epic Records and 914 Films, will shoot a feature film documenting fans and their personal stories of how they use the band’s music to cope with their everyday lives.
“Wrath” sold around 68,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 2 (behind TAYLOR SWIFT‘s “Fearless”) on The Billboard 200 chart.
LAMB OF GOD performed at the sixth edition of D-TOX Rockfest on June 17 in Montebello, Quebec, Canada. This marked the group’s first and only 2011 appearance.
