Today’s the day that everyone gets their hand on Omens, the new studio offering from Lamb of God, and boy does it kick some serious ass. But if you were among the few fans that weren’t swayed by “Omens” and “Grayscale,” then maybe the latest single off the album will change your mind.
“Ditch” is one hell of a statement, if you ask me. From the get go, it’s a ripper of a track with some scathing lyrics about how the situation someone finds themselves in right now is their own making. You know – finding yourself “lying face down in a ditch that you’ve dug yourself.”
Frontman Randy Blythe has gone on to say that the album was exactly about all the warning signs of doom that we ignore.
“The world is crazy and keeps changing. Omens is a reaction to the state of the world. It’s a very pissed-off record. It is extremely pissed-off.”
In addition to today’s single and video release, the band will be streaming their live set from the Aftershock Festival on the DWP Twitch channel at 9 p.m. PT/12 a.m. ET. So if you’re a night owl, that might be the perfect time to throw down on some live Lamb of God.
The band has also put out a documentary about the making of the album, which you can find on demand through the rest of this month on their website. On-demand tickets are available now, but anyone that buys a physical copy of Omens gets a free access code.
Omens is out today and available on all streaming platforms.
