Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD kicked off their short East Coast tour last night (Sunday, January 22) at The National in their hometown. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.

In a recent interview with The Aquarian Weekly, LAMB OF GOD bassist John Campbell stated about whether he and his bandmates still feel competitive as performers, "Yeah, from every moment that we're onstage that's kind of part of the character that we take on when we becoming LAMB OF GOD up onstage. DETHKLOK kind of mocks the idea, but when you're onstage, you're the fucking baddest band in the world. And if you're not, what the fuck are you doing onstage? For us, we've worked really hard writing songs that we feel are great songs, that we can perform and blow people away with. And we've made a career of doing that."

LAMB OF GOD's new album, "Resolution" will be released in North America on January 24 via Epic Records (one day earlier internationally through Roadrunner Records). The CD was recorded at various studios in Virginia and New York with producer Josh Wilbur, who worked on the band's last effort, 2009's "Wrath".

"Resolution" features 14 songs and will come in a digipack with artwork by longtime art director Ken Adams.
