Bassist John Campbell of Lamb of God recently touched on the subject of Internet, saying that the band is glad to have emerged on the music scene prior to world wide web massive expansion.

During a Team Rock radio chat, Campbell was initially asked about the impact other bands make on Lamb of God and then shifted to the Internet topic.

"I think we're really fortunate that we've come up before the Internet got completely filled with information," he said. "I think we're in a unique position that we've crept under and there's a scene we can play off of. But really it's us just looking inward, it's not so much about looking around to see what's going on to affect what we're doing."

The bassist also discussed online arguments, briefly saying "Come on man, there's no point in that!"

Lamb of God recently announced a UK tour set to take place in January 2014. You can check out the full concert itinerary below.

The latest studio record in LoG opus, "Resolution," was released in January 2012 via Epic Records, landing at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart with around 52,000 units shipped in the US during the first week.

    I think the internet was fine until all the social media stuff came about. That's when things starting getting really stupid.
    Last I checked the first Lamb of God album was released in 2000 when the internet was already filled with information.
    "I think we're really fortunate that we've come up before the Internet" They were RAISED in a time before the internet, PS. Burn The Priest was formed in 1990 and their first demo was released in 1995 so you are wrong good sir.
    These guys just don't like all the hate pointed towards them after they started sucking, that's why they have a problem with people arguing over music. To question is fundamental to human existance, to say that people shouldn't argue is like saying you should just believe everything you hear. These guys are just sore that their day in the sun is loooong over.
    being a smart ass comes naturally too, but most people try to avoid doing that
    Lamb of God are still a relevant amazing band. I hate ****ers who disrespect a band just because they get some commercial success. LOG should be super respected for bringing extreme music to the masses and finding people who are prepared to spend there hard earned cash on brilliant music. These guys have done serious hard core sleeping in the van touring all over America and Europe travelling hundreds of miles to play to 50 metal heads back in the day. Don't make them out to be some kind of sell out their music is still extreme and still very recognisably LOG. Many. Other bands could do with creating an identity for there music instead of making the same old death metal sounds and trying to pass It of as extreme.
