In total, LAMB OF GOD has sold more than 2.5 million albums worldwide and garnered over 400 million streams. The metal giants signed with Epic in 2004 and released Ashes Of The Wake shortly thereafter. The album debuted at #27 on the Billboard 200, sold over 35,000 copies in its first week in the USA and was eventually certified Gold. Sacrament saw release two years later, followed by Wrath in 2009. Wrath sold over 68,000 copies in its first week and debuted at #3 in the US, smashing into the UK official album chart at #25 (and at #1 in the rock & metal chart). The album’s lead single, “Ghost Walking,” garnered yet another Grammy nomination for LAMB OF GOD for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance.” 2015’s VII: Sturm und Drang made its debut at #3 (USA) and a UK career best #7 and put another Grammy nomination under the group’s belt for “512” in the “Best Metal Performance” category.
After intense touring, LAMB OF GOD finally returned to the studio to record their 2020 globally acclaimed, self-titled album. Following the expanded re-release of Lamb Of God and an anniversary edition of Sacrament earlier this year, the quintet recently completed a co-headline US tour with Megadeth on The Metal Tour Of The Year, featuring support from Trivium and Hatebreed.
