As Randy Blythe's manslaughter case had been put to rest, it seems that the Lamb of God are finally able to focus on making some music.
During a recent chat on Full Metal Jackie radio show, bassist John Campbell announced the group's plans to release the new album by the end of 2014, saying that the five-piece already sat down to talk about their future studio ventures.
"We have begun discussing what the new record is going to be and we are planning on touring through the end of the year until the beginning of next year," Campbell said (via Loudwire). "The plans are to record a record sometime next year and have it out by the end of that year."
In the first part of the interview, the bassist discussed the events that occurred during the past year and the trial singer went through, pointing out the importance of never forgetting that a human life was lost that night in Prague.
"It's important that in all of this it's not lost that a fan lost his life. We lost somebody through all this and that's a tragedy," the bassist said. "It definitely makes you wonder where exactly you're headed, what options you have in front of you. I would say just the not knowing whether or not we were going to continue on with the band was an interesting situation to deal with."
The latest Lamb of God record, "Resolution," dropped in January 2012 as the group's seventh studio effort. With 52,000 units shipped in the US within the first week, it debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.
