Lamb of God 'Probably' Not Working on New Music Until Mid-2014
Following Randy Blythe's recent hiatus announcement, Lamb of God bassist John Campbell gave an update on the band's new material, noting it's unlikely that the group will work on any fresh tracks until later this year.

Chatting with Metal Review, John revealed that the band's definitely been "tossing around some new ideas," but won't be taking matters to the next level yet.

"Well, when we get together to start discussing the record, start working on the actual music, but probably won't be until the middle of this year," the bassist said. "I keep forgetting we have a new year."

Asked about the approach the group will be taking, Campbell added, "We try to push ourselves on every record to kind of step outside what we've done before, whilst still maintaining what it is that we do. We're a heavy metal band. We're not going to change that now. We're going to put out music that we feel really good about!"

In his recent Instagram announcement, Blythe described the latest album cycle as "at times very stressful," admitting he needs to take a break. "I will not be thinking about Lamb of God, touring, playing heavy metal, writing new Lamb of God material - none of that stuff - at all - for a good long while," he said.
