If Randy Blythe is not released from prison this week, will the LAMB OF GOD, DETHKLOK & GOJIRA Tour Still Happen?

One of the hottest tours of the year, featuring two of the biggest names in Metal, LAMB OF GOD and DETHKLOK, are scheduled to join forces for a 34-show North American tour kicking off on August 1 in Seattle, Washington. The three-time Grammy® Award-nominated band from Richmond, VA and the world’s most brutal animated death band from Adult Swim’s "Metalocalypse" animated series are scheduled to shred with special guests GOJIRA through cities in the U.S. and Canada ending September 15 in San Francisco, CA.

This massive upcoming summer tour, which marks the return of LAMB OF GOD to North American stages where they will support their latest album 'Resolution', is currently in jeopardy due to Randy Blythe's arrest. Blythe is currently locked up in a Czech prison accused of manslaughter. HERE is the latest information about Blythe's legal case!

While no news of a tour cancellation has surfaced     (So far, one stop on the trek has been nixed — the show set for August 15 in St. Charles, Missouri), there is now way that LAMB OF GOD would do the tour without their singer Randy Blythe! But who could replace Blythe? Let us know in the comments section below.

I really dont see anyone being able to replace Randy especially in a weeks notice let alone have the stage presence and impact as he would. Well maybe Dez Fafara now im thinking about it he has the range and can do it.
