The official lyric video for the song “Erase This” from Richmond, Virginia metallers LAMB OF GOD can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s seventh full-length album, “VII: Sturm Und Drang”, which was released on July 24 via Epic in the U.S. and Nuclear Blast Entertainment in all territories outside of North America. The CD was once again produced and mixed by Josh Wilbur with engineering by Wilbur, Nick Rowe and Kyle McAulay, and was recorded at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California and Suburban Soul Studios in Torrance, California.
“Lyrically, ‘Erase This’ deals with negative people and how they can drag you down without you even necessarily realizing it,” LAMB OF GOD guitarist Mark Morton told Rolling Stone magazine. “It’s about people you may even be close to, but who are stuck in their own self-pity and woe-is-me, kind of victim status. That kind of energy can spread like a virus. Most of us as humans have been on both the giving and receiving end of that kind of attitude, but the older I get, the more I try to focus on not allowing that type of vibe to enter my mindset. Musically, it’s pretty trademark LAMB OF GOD riffing. It’s got that ’12 over 4′ [time signature] groove that we’ve used before in songs like ‘Laid To Rest’ and a cool talk box in the bridge. I think it’s a pretty badass track. It’s one of my favorites on the album.”
LAMB OF GOD will embark on a U.S. headlining tour in January/February 2016. Direct support on the trek will come from ANTHRAX The trek will begin on Friday, January 15 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and visit several major U.S. markets before coming to a close in Los Angeles, California on February 12.
