Lamb Of God To Livestream Resurrection Fest, With Live Chat From Mark Morton
Lamb Of God are streaming their set from last year’s Resurrection Festival today.
The stream will take place on the Knotfest website at 7pm UK/ 12pm PST / 3pm EST and will be the Richmond titans’ full set from the Spanish metal weekender in 2019.
“Our European tour with Kreator was scheduled to start tomorrow. While we can’t make it over for the tour, we’ve partnered with Knotfest to premiere our full set from Resurrection Fest 2019,” say the band.
“Mark Morton will be hanging out in the chatroom during the performance watching along and answering questions.”
Lamb Of God will release their new self-titled album on May 8 via Nuclear Blast. Last week, they released a video for opening track Memento Mori, the follow-up to lead single Checkmate.
“I wrote the narrative music video treatment a few months ago to illustrate how warped and myopic our mental states can become when we fail to remain engaged with that reality – if all you pay attention to is catastrophe, then soon you will begin to see monsters everywhere you look,” explained frontman Randy Blythe.
“The actual monsters we used in the video are Sinisteria, a local Richmond, Virginia haunted house/dark performance troupe I met on the street at our annual Krampus Nacht parade. Richmond has a strong tradition of loud music and weird costumed monsters working hand in hand to make salient points – we are the birthplace of GWAR, after all – and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results.

“Music has always been there for me, raising my spirits during hard times, and it is my hope that this song’s positive message will do the same for fans of our music right now and beyond. The release date for the tune was set a good while ago, but the timing seems eerily prescient to me now. So enjoy the song and video, and then remember to step away from the screens for a bit - real life is waiting for you.
“We only get one shot, so don’t waste this day. Everyone be well, keep a cool head, take care of yourselves, and take care of each other.”
