Lam of God who are going to be on tour with Slipknot, Bullet For My Valentine, and Motionless In White announced a couple of days ago the title of their upcoming record. The name of the new record is VII: Sturm Und Drang which is German for Storm And Stress which according to Google was a literary movement in the 18TH Century Germany that, “exalted nature, feeling, and human individualism and sought to overthrow the Enlightenment cult of Rationalism. Goethe and Schiller began their careers as prominent members of the movement.” The band as of yesterday (June 8) unleashed their very first single off the new record called 512 which is a reference to the cell number that singer Randy Blythe had while in Pankrac Prison. The singer talked about the experience with Rolling Stone stating, “You cannot have the same mentality as the normal guy living on the streets in prison. You undergo a radical mental and emotional shift when you go into prison.There are aspects of your personality that you could cultivate in prison that are beneficial to your survival that would be seen as psychosis or extreme paranoia. You have to be ready for violence at any time. Anyone who is 100 percent honest in prison will get taken advantage of, maybe by other prisoners, maybe by guards. For me, being in prison was a lot of figuring out what I could get away with, how I could work outside any set of rules in order to remain as comfortable as I could. You’re cultivating your psyche in your deceit. In prison, everyone is listening all the time, and if they hear you say something that they can take, they might internalize it and be like, ‘This guy is talking to someone,’ and he’ll wind up dead.” Check out the track below and look out for their album when it hits stores July 24TH.
