In other news, LAMB OF GOD‘s April 1 appearance in Curitiba, Brazil with HATEBREED and LACUNA COIL has been canceled “due to irreversible logistics problems.” LAMB OF GOD‘s performance in Buenos Aires, Argentina, which was originally going to happen on April 3, had to be moved to April 2, which ended up affecting the band’s travel schedule and forced the promoters to cancel their second show in Brazil. Tickets for the Curitiba show will be refunded at point of purchase.
LAMB OF GOD‘s seventh album, “Resolution“, sold around 52,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band’s previous CD, “Wrath“, opened with around 68,000 units back in March 2009 to enter the chart at No. 2. This figure was roughly in line with the first-week tally registered by 2006‘s “Sacrament“, which shifted around 63,000 units to debut at No. 8. It also represented almost double the amount of records sold by its predecessor, “Ashes Of The Wake“, which premiered with 35,000 copies in September 2004.
“Resolution” was released in the U.S. via Epic and 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 comes in a digipack with artwork by longtime art director Ken Adams.
