Lamb Of God has unleashed the video for the next single ‘Memento Mori’ . Check it out below:
This is the opening track from their upcoming self-titled album, due out May 8th via Epic Records.
The video was created from the narrative of frontman Randy Blythe and is extremely topical. Blythe had this to say:
“There is a vast amount of indisputably real and depressingly negative occurrences happening across the globe …Currently, at the forefront of everyone’s mind is the global COVID-19 pandemic. This is a very real concern, and proper precautions need to be taken by EVERYONE in order to protect those most at risk – the elderly, infirm, and immunocompromised. It is indeed a scary time, but in this hyper-connected age with its 24/7 never-ending news cycle of atrocity, outrage and lurid click-bait headlines (not to mention ill-informed lunatics running amok and spreading misinformation and panic on social media), it is all too easy to lose sight of the fact that life is still carrying on, and good things do in fact still happen.”
The new album also features guest appearances by Jemmy Jasta (Hatebreed) and Chuck Billy (Testament).
