Lamb of God premieres new song, "Routes," featuring Testament's Chuck Billy
Lamb of God has premiered a new song called “Routes,” which will appear on the band’s upcoming self-titled album.
The track, which you can download now via digital outlets, was inspired by frontman Randy Blythe‘s experience at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota during the NODAPL protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline. It features guest vocals from Testament frontman Chuck Billy, who is of Pomo Native American heritage.
“It was a great honor as a proud Pomo Native American to be asked by Lamb of God to do some guest vocals on this song,” Billy says.
“The NODAPL movement by the indigenous people of this country was a historic event,” he continues. “Being able to lend my voice to represent the Native American people, complementing Randy’s storytelling and lyrics, is something really special to me. I’m glad this movement was put in a musical message, and I am extremely happy to have been a part of it.”
Lamb of God the album, which also includes the previously released songs “Memento Mori,” “Checkmate” and “New Colossal Hate,” is due out June 19.
