As reported by Blabbermouth, Lamb of God frontman Randy Blythe says it will be "time to take a break for real" following their summer touring plans. The musician cites his weariness from a persistent recording and touring schedule that's been going strong since his acquittal of manslaughter charges in 2013.

"I got out of prison and immediately went on tour, because I had five lawyers and they were just hemorrhaging money like crazy. I went from jail to home to, ten days later, being at Knotfest to home for a month or two, then out on tour with Lamb Of God, then back to the Czech Republic to go to trial, found not guilty, then come home, then finish up the rest of our tour and finally end in South Africa."

The band released their eighth album, VII: Sturm und Drang, in 2015, followed by The Duke EP last year.

Blythe says he'll use the downtime to focus on his photography, writing and spending time with his family.

"It's at a point now where it's, like, at the end of this tour cycle, it's gonna be, like, boom, it's time to take a break for real and concentrate more on writing and being at home with the family."
