Lamb of God cancels tour

Members of metal band Lamb of God announced Thursday that they're canceling their upcoming tour "due to the continued incarceration" of the group's singer, Randy Blythe, in the Czech Republic.

According to MTV, 41-year-old Blythe was arrested in Prague on June 27 in connection with the death of a fan at one of the band's 2010 shows there. When the band returned to the Czech Republic on tour, Blythe was arrested at the airport in Prague, MTV reports.

As a result, Lamb of God's tour with co-headliner Dethklok, which was supposed to kick off August 1 in Seattle, has been canceled.

"The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of (Blythe's) release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour," the statement says. "Upon (Blythe's) release, it is the band’s intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December."

The band goes on to thank touring partners Dethklok as well as Adult Swim and Gojira "for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour."

And, of course, it thanks all of the fans who purchased tickets to the tour "and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no Lamb of God."

    MTV is actually paying attention to music. I'm surprised.
