Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler recently spoke to The Virginian-Pilot about frontman Randy Blythe’s arrest in the Czech Republic last year on manslaughter charges and the subsequent legal ordeal, which took more than eight months to play out. He claims that Randy’s arrest had “bankrupted the entire band”, explaining:
“Not only were we not able to generate any income, but we ended up having to pay more than half a million dollars in legal fees. It bankrupted the entire band; [there was] no money left for any kind of payroll or anything. When Randy was acquitted [in March of this year], everything was on the line at that point. Either it was completely over, or we had a chance to get back out there and pay these bills and get ourselves back on our feet.”
Lamb of God released their last album Resolution in January of last year on Epic Records.
