Lamb Of God have shared their brutal new single, Grayscale, lifted from the quintet's forthcoming album Omens, which is scheduled to arrive on October 7 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Grayscale serves as the third single from the new collection, and follows the previously-released tracks Nevermore and Omens.
The song itself is cemented by vigorous heavy riffs, violent percussion, and frontman Randy Blythe's hallmark coarse screams, underscored by beautifully poetic lyrics such as 'There’s a war going on inside my head / Shadows sewn of golden thread' and 'I paid a thief to steal away my one escape / I bought a broken mirror just to try and see my face.'
Speaking of the new release, guitarist Willie Adler comments, "Grayscale has just a smack you in the face, bit of hardcore feel to it. We had basically finished writing the record and I wrote this song thinking it won't necessarily be a Lamb song.
"I sent it to Josh Wilbur, our producer, to check out and he responded with 'Perfect, this is the last song we need for the record!'"
The Virginian metal juggernauts will be heading off on their US headline tour tomorrow (September 9), kicking off with a show in Brooklyn Coney Island, NY. Throughout the duration of the run they'll be joined by Killswitch Engage. On select dates, they'll receive support from Baroness, Motionless In White, Spiritbox, Animals As Leaders, Suicide Silence and Fit For An Autopsy.
In December, the band will be hitting the road for the UK leg of their State Of Unrest tour, alongside Kreator, Thy Art Is Murder and Gatecreeper as special guests. They'll commence the trek with a performance at Brixton Academy in London on December 13.
