Drummer Chris Adler of US metallers Lamb of God recently posted an update on the current state of music affairs, revealing that the group is looking to make a few big announcements in the near future.

"The band is playing well and much of the hard work we have put in is being rewarded with great slots on the festivals we are doing and huge side shows in between," the drummer stated via Facebook. "We've got a few big announcements coming soon regarding tours that will end the 'Resolution' cycle and a little surprise before the end of the year. Stay tuned and stay metal!"

In the rest of his post, Adler focused on the upcoming Protest the Hero record "Volition" he made a guest appearance on, calling it nothing short of amazing. The stickman also noted that chances of him joining the band on tour are pretty slim.

"I've now heard the Protest The Hero record and it's fantastic! I love listening to it and hope you all do as well," he said. "I've been asked many times on this tour that since I played drums on the record if I will be touring with them or would consider playing on other projects. I'm fairly sure my schedule won't allow for me to properly join their band and tour."

Adler continued, "As for other projects, it's hard to answer that. I was a fan of PTH and jumped at the chance to step out of my box a little bit, push myself and explore my capabilities. It turned into quite a daunting task, but I'm much better off for it."

Lamb of God have recently announced a UK tour set to take place in January 2014. Their latest studio effort, "Resolution," was released in January 2012 via Epic Records, claiming No. 3 spot on the Billboard 200 chart with around 52,000 units shopped in the US during the first week.

    Surprise by the end of the year? LOG Christmas album 2013! Songs such as: Ghost(of Christmas past)Walking and Now you've got someone to buy for. Ok I'll stop
    Excited for both to hear his inclusion in PTH and to see what the announcements are for LOG. Chris Adler can't do any wrong.
    I wonder what the PTH album will sound like, considering all of their albums sound different.
    i'll never forget when my stupid columbian friend was in my car one day and told everyone how he was looking through my cds and saw some "leg of lamb" cd.....we all laughed our asses off and said "you mean lamb of god?" hahahaha
    I'm guessing it's an EP if it's gonna happen by the end of the year.
    I read the title and instantly thought to myself "Randy Blyth is going to go on a killing spree"
    I read your comment and instantly thought to myself "I hope you're first in line"
