Rockers Lamb Of God are to embark on a hiatus following frontman Randy Blythe’s acquittal on a manslaughter charge.
The star was accused of killing fan Daniel Nosek by pushing him off the stage during a gig in Prague, Czech Republic in 2010 but was found not guilty at a trial last year.
He has since returned to performing with the band, and begun work on a new album, but the singer took to his account on Sunday to announce they are taking an extended break.
Blythe writes, “And so another album cycle comes to an end. This has been a very eventful, at times very stressful, album cycle… I need a break. Tomorrow is a 19 hour flight back to the USA, & then another one home to RVA (Richmond, Virginia), & except for two festival shows in 2014, I will not be thinking about Lamb Of God, touring, playing heavy metal, writing new Lamb Of God material – none of that stuff – at all – for a good long while. Time to do other things for a bit, & let my brain regroup, & be a somewhat normal human being.”
