Richmond, Virginia metal act LAMB OF GOD are set to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their album “As The Palaces Burn’
To celebrate the milestone anniversary of LAMB OF GOD‘s third album, which came out in May 2003, the band will perform a special commemorative set during its headlining appearance at this year’s edition of Milwaukee Metal Fest on May 28 at The Rave/Eagles club.
In a recent talk with Heavy New York, LAMB OF GOD bassist John Campbell was asked if there are any plans for LAMB OF GOD to commemorate the anniversary for “As The Palaces Burn” . He responded: “As far as the anniversary of that, these are just mile markers that, more often than, the marketing department and the record labels wanna celebrate. It’s crazy for me to look back: holy shit; that was how long ago? Fuck! So, yes, we’ll certainly take a moment to applaud that as the date comes around. If we play a show, maybe we’ll do something special.”
LAMB OF GOD‘s latest album, “Omens”, was released in October.
Before Ozzfest. Before Mayhem Festival. Before all of them — there was Milwaukee Metal Fest.
HATEBREED frontman and podcaster Jamey Jasta purchased the rights last year and today announces the lineup for Milwaukee Metal Fest 2023.
The rebooted event will take place on Memorial Day Weekend — May 26-28 — at The Rave/Eagles club. Get tickets at TheRave.com.
The lineup includes LAMB OF GOD, ANTHRAX, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, and many more. The full lineup is below.
“The infamous Milwaukee Metal Fest created so many memories, hosted legendary bands, and gave up and comers something to aspire to. Memorial Day Weekend 2023 (May 26, 27, and 28) — it returns with a stacked line up and a new lease on life,” says Jasta. “I cannot wait to see all the bands and hang with everyone in Milwaukee. I’m so grateful for [booking agent] Tim Borror and the Sound Talent Crew; and Leslie, Joe, and everyone at The Rave/Eagles for helping us put this event together. Milwaukee Metal Fest is back! See you in Wisconsin this May!”
Says Borror: “Milwaukee Metal Fest was such a huge part of the metal culture back in the day, and it really helped a lot of bands. It was always at The Rave and the combo is iconic. Working with Jamey, the great people at The Rave, and all the bands to bring it back in 2023 is fucking incredible. This is going to be a great event, don’t miss it!”
