UPDATE: Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Arrested For Manslaughter

UPDATE: Lamb of God’s press team has stated that no formal charges against Randy Blythe have been made and that the case is still in the investigation stages. Management also wants to clarify the “altercation” that occurred in 2010. According to them, a fan jumped the barricade at the concert three times in an attempt to rush at Randy. On the third occasion security was unable to reach this fan in time. Randy pushed the fan back into the audience where, supposedly, he fell and hit his head. The investigation is apparently set to conclude this weekend and a formal statement will be issued on Monday.

According to the Czech news site Novinky, Lamb of God singer Randy Blythe has been arrested for manslaughter in the Czech Republic. The band was supposed to perform a show in Prague with All Shall Perish and Skeletonwitch but Blythe was detained by police immediately upon arrival, forcing the show’s cancellation. The details are still uncertain but it seems that Blythe got involved in an on-stage altercation with a fan back in 2010. The fan later died from his injuries.

A spokesperson for Lamb of God has stated that they believe Blythe is wrongly accused and they expect full exoneration. They also say that their lawyers are working on this.

Lamb of God will (hopefully) be touring alongside Dethklok and Gojira this summer. All details can be found here. You can also check out my review for their latest album, Resolution, here.
