Lamb Of God and scary dudes Dimmu Borgir will be co-headlining the brief Defenders Of The Faith II tour over in the UK. It’s not until February 2009, so you have some time to book your flight, yanks. The bands will be joined by Five Finger Death Punch, with more acts promised to be announced soon. It’s noted Lamb Of God will close all the shows.

Lamb Of God commenced recording on the followup to 2006’s Sacrament (Epic) back in August, so one imagines they may be done by now. Dimmu Borgir released In Sorte Diaboli on Nuclear Blast last year. Five Finger Death Punch issued The Way Of The Fist on Firm Music in 2007.
