Lamb of God has released the song “Omens.” It’s the breezy title track from the band’s upcoming studio album. A music video accompanied it on Thursday (July 28).
Men Lamb of God vocalist Randy Blythe distinguishing in a statement between real omens – or just ominous events – and the choices we make for ourselves, imbuing the track with what could be taken as a personal call on how to see the world.
Either way, the new single from the veteran metal band follows “Never again,” the first track released from Alerts. The album itself is set for release in October. 7. Listen to “Omens” at the bottom of this post.
Elaborating on the meaning of the song, Blythe says, “I think a lot of the messes humans find ourselves in can be very easily prevented by simply being aware of obvious repetitive patterns, both in our personal lives and in a wider sociohistorical context.”
He adds: “What some call ‘omens’ are really just manifestations of the fact that there is nothing new under the sun. It’s foolish to ignore this, but we all do.”
