Lamb Of God have postponed the release of their eighth album. The much-anticipated release is now slated for June 19. Fans still have reason to be psyched, though. The next taste from the self-titled release, "New Colossal Hate," will be out this Thursday.

“Regrettably, we have to announce that the release date for our upcoming self-titled album is being moved five weeks, to June 19th," Lamb Of God said in a statement. "We're in extraordinary times due to the current global reality and the delay of shipments of all-but- essential goods needed in the fight against COVID-19. After talks with our labels, there is no other option than to delay the release so that fans who pre-ordered the album can receive the record they paid for."

"We appreciate your patience during these times. A global pandemic is not something people in the music industry usually take into account when scheduling album releases, but as you know, this thing has affected everyone across the board, and we are no exception. We will, however, be releasing a new song, "New Colossal Hate", this Thursday, April 23rd and plan to release a fourth song from the album before the full album is released in June. Thank you for your understanding.

"Wash your damn hands, let us know what you think of the new tunes, and see you on the road sometime!”

Lamb Of God is the hotly anticipated follow-up to 2015's VII: Sturm und Drang. We've waited five years, what's a couple more weeks? The band have released two singles leading up to the release date thus far, "Checkmate" and the brooding "Memento Mori." And it's the first album to feature new drummer Art Cruz. Fans may pre-order the new album here.
