February 22, 2007

Richmond, Virginia metal act LAMB OF GOD has issued a statement through it Street Team refuting reports that it has committed to this summer's The Family Values Tour.

The official Virgin Recordse-card for KORN's upcoming "MTV Unplugged" album listed the purported lineup for this year's The Family Values Tour as headliners KORN alongside EVANESCENCE, LAMB OF GOD, and AIDEN. However, in a statement sent to BLABBERMOUTH.NET, LAMB OF GOD denied that it had signed on the dotted line for the mammoth summer package.

LAMB OF GOD's latest album, "Sacrament", has sold 191,000 copies in the United States since its August 21, 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD was produced by Machine (CLUTCH, KING CRIMSON, PITCHSHIFTER, EIGHTEEN VISIONS, EVERY TIME I DIE).
